Spring is here and with it, long lines at the car wash and bright orange trash bags piled up alongside the state’s highways. As beautiful as Alaska is, we still need to freshen up with the change of seasons. The same is true of a business or organization’s marketing and public relations plans. Is your content fresh and compelling, or old and gray like the grainy, melting snow? With Alaska seemingly crawling out from under the pandemic and with more federal cash headed to the state, it’s time to dust off your promotional plans and make sure what you have to say is relevant, engaging, and targeted at the right clients. Need help? Call us. Consultations are always free.
