We’ve announced the workshops for the Biola Media Conference! These breakout sessions are the best opportunity you’ll ever have to hear from Hollywood’s film, television and digital media experts in a very intimate setting where, in most cases, you can ask questions. I am not overstating that point. There is NO other event in the country where you can have this much access to this many professionals who share your faith.

Last time, we talked through an overview of the Four P’s: Product, Price, Place and Promotion. In the next several columns, we’re going to dive more deeply into Promotion, covering Public Relations, Advertising and in this column, the basics about Social Media.

Every business school teaches The Four P’s in their basic marketing class. The Four P’s are Product, Price, Place and Promotion.
