Director's Corner: Share Your Quick Tips and Tidbits as a Part of PMA Marketing Moments
PMA Marketing Moments is a weekly podcast produced by PMA ® consisting of 60-second to 90-second audio files recorded by PMA speakers, consultants, and members. This new "short version" format allows PMA members to hear quick tips and ideas to inspire creative marketing concepts. A new PMA Marketing Moment will be available each Tuesday, and like all PMA podcasts, is available to subscribe through iTunes or another "Pod-catcher."
Since you are considered leading industry experts, we would like to call on you to create a PMA Marketing Moment for us. Keeping with the theme, these marketing ideas should be 90 seconds or less. Professional recording equipment is not necessary to do this. Just contact me at 800-762-9287 or email@example.com .
Thank you ,
Stephanie A. Fisher, Education Director
