RTP 180: Gaming
July 16th, The Frontier
Long gone are the days where “gaming” meant sitting alone in your room with a tv and Nintendo. While Donkey Kong and Mario will forever be classics, the world of gaming has gone far beyond the controller. These days, companies are making strides and finding new, inventive ways to incorporate gaming into many areas of life. From virtual reality, multi-player and even gamification as a job training tool, people and companies in our area are pushing the joystick forward. The show starts at 6:00pm. See you then!

Using Content Marketing to Building Your Brand & Customer Base
July 15th, The Frontier

Join Digital Foundry as they host an event focused on the evolving world of content marketing. On one hand, it costs 62% less than traditional marketing strategies and generates three times as many leads. On the other hand, it can be tricky to create your digital brand, with roughly 60-70% of all content wasted because it is not relevant to the target audience. If you do it “right,” it can be immensely successful and profitable, but if you do it “wrong,” it can be a waste of your valuable time.
