If all you have going is SEO and Billboards then you should attend this seminar.
If you are stuck on how to get into 21+ focused marketing in the B2B space without cold calling – you should attend this seminar.
The FCC has recently allowed certain CBD products to appear on National advertising networks that go beyond
WeedmapsTM. This means we can get you on TV – Now – In Michigan.
But how do you know what’s happening with your Ad Buy? You Don’t Know.
Are you working with someone that has traditional Network Contacts? You Should Be.
Do you have hands on access to direct DSP Level Delivery on Connected Out of Home? Probably not – You are probably just
writing checks to The Big Billboard Company and hoping you are winning the “war.” When the battle ground has shifted into
Bars and Elevators of Hotels where Cannabis Tourism Customers are actually at.
Certain Networks now allow CTV campaigns to attract new customers to your Online or brick and mortar store front
– Including CBS Sports, ABC News and More! Display Ad Copy can now say WEED in it. Does yours? Does your copy
match your conversion metrics?
Basically – if you aren’t aware of what’s happening – If you are stuck with a large Billboard bill every month without
measured returns – and if YOU are wondering how to either expose your brand to Retailers or Consumers OR Both,
then attend this seminar!
We’ll expose you to the measurement of all mobile device IDs that visited ALL Dispensaries in SE Michigan – Over
the Past year, with their Age, Time of visit – following them to where they live, down to their property lines –
including where they visited from if traveling -and we will show you how to take existing data and mine a field of
gold right in your parking lot, store front and counter and that of your competitors.
