Townsquare Media Chief Strategy Officer Mark Stewart to Speak at American Advertising Federation of Greater Evansville
Mark Stewart, Chief Strategy Officer for Townsquare Media, will be the guest speaker at the September American Advertising Federation of Greater Evansville (AAF-GE) luncheon. Mr. Stewart’s presentation will focus on “Narrowcasting”
In today’s market, no business can afford to be all things to all people, no matter how broad-based their product or service appeal. Even so, many businesses want to appeal to everyone while offending no one so their campaigns become over-generalized. Mark will discuss how to strategically focus on target audiences and move away from a “Broadcasting” strategy to a “Narrowcasting” strategy with regard to both creative idealizations as well as media placement.
Reservations for the September Luncheon (this Thursday, September 27th) at 12pm at Casino Aztar, can be made from the AAF-GE website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The luncheon is free for AAF-GE members, $15 for non-members.
