Small Business & Marketing with Dennis H. Lewis, Chuck Fresh

In this panel, we invited Dennis H. Lewis of Green Light Digital marketing and Chuck Fresh from Indie Originals to share best practices and their experience for the most effective marketing.

Too many people, especially independent creators have no idea how to market themselves. We can have the best product, but without a good marketing strategy, it could be the lose treasure – never discovered. Get some wisdom from the pros.

Our special guests joined us for an hour of fun, telling tales of paranormal activity during their investigations, digging up old OUIJA boards (CRAZY!!!!), zombies and dancing Santas. SAY WHAT?!

This diverse group has multiple interests in areas of movie making, launching a made-for-TV series, writing, acting, and supporting indie creators of all flavors. As a side note: Zombies donu0027t discriminate. Youu0027re all delicious.
