SALT LAKE CITY, UT â€” Outdoor industry marketing expert Chris Harges will present a seminar designed to help retailers and manufacturers retool their marketing to better react to the current economic downturn.
Whether or not you believe we’re in a recession, it’s a topic now weighing on the minds of millions of American consumers. Consumer spending is flat and the Consumer Confidence Index is at twenty-eight-year low. But while skittish consumers may be less likely to buy, smart marketers can tweak their marketing programs to make the best of a bad situation. Learn how consumer thinking changes during a recession and how to refocus your marketing to work harder in hard times.
Title: Ramping Up for a Slowdown: Refocus Your Marketing for the Recessionary Consumer
Date: Saturday, August 9, 12:00 PMâ€“01:00 PM
Location: Downtown Marriott- Salon D
