Media Panel: How to Leverage the Media in Your Freelance Business
Limited Capacity seats available

Most freelance business owners feel like media is only for big business. Not true! YOU are a business in this community adding value and money to the local economy - not to mention you are probably helping those "big" businesses operate efficiently.

Understanding what the media is looking for and how to connect with them when the time is right for you can make a huge difference in your business and the success rate of getting the media to work with you. We've invited representatives from some media outlets across Corpus Christi to come out and talk first-hand on how to pitch a story, who to talk to and answer your questions.
