Please join us on Tuesday, October 17, in the Heritage Room at BridgePort BrewPub as we welcome Casey Markee, Founder of Media Wyse, who will be presenting "The Art of Storytelling: How to Create and Promote Epic Stories". Note: This is one week later than our usual 2nd Tuesday.


Creating stories that connect, excite, and move audiences through the sales funnel is not easy! Effective content attracts and connects people to your brand and provides a tangible outcome to the bottom line but only if done properly. All too often, stories are lacking in interest to the prospective audience and they sit lonely, on the web.

In this presentation, attendees will learn what makes GREAT brand stories and how to distribute them to attract and captivate an audience. You’ll learn how great content, social, email, and blogger/media outreach work together to get businesses found, generate visibility, and convert bottom-line benefits!
