Introduction to Canna-PR: Wednesday, January 23rd @ 10am PT / 1pm ET. 

Tags: , , , ,

I’m thrilled to announce our next educational event, “An Introduction to Canna-PR”, led by Heidi Haller Groshelle of Ingrid Marketing, a PR veteran and pioneer in Canna-PR. It’s free to join, but you must RSVP.  

NOTE: This event is for independent PR/Comms pros only.

Why Canna-PR? Simple. Tt’s quickly becoming one of the hottest emerging industries in need of knowledgeable PR and marketing talent. Like most niche industries, there are a number of nuances to be aware of when entering into client service in this space – traditional PR rules don’t necessarily apply.

Given the ongoing regulation (and grey-area federal illegality) there are alot of gotchas when it comes to public promotion, including marketing across state lines. We’re seeing a gold-rush of new media properties and beat reporters as well as events.

  • What do PR people interested in servicing this space need to know?
  • How do you evaluate who would make a good client?
  • What are best practices to be employed?

We’ll discuss all of this and more. 

Send a note to hello (at) to receive dial-in info and reserve your spot.
