How’s Business? Help your team answer the hard questions about the media industry

Recorded on March 29, 2013 and April 4, 2013

It’s unavoidable. You’re at the soccer game, the neighborhood picnic or on a sales call. The question or comment that paints an unflattering picture of your newspaper gets lobbed your way. How’s business? Is circulation down? No one reads newspapers anymore. How you and your employees answer these questions sets the tone for the rest of the conversation.

In this interactive webinar you’ll learn how to train your staff on how to answer the hard questions they hear each day. You’ll get real answers to real questions. How’s Business is a great session for ad directors, publishers or anyone who is concerned about how to manage your newspaper’s brand in your community.
