TribalVision Managing Partner Chris Ciunci Conducts Two-Part Market Smarter Series with PolarisMEP and the RI Small Business Development Center

TribalVision Founder and CEO Chris Ciunci is leading a two-part Marketing Smarter series with Polaris Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Polaris MEP) and the Rhode Island Small Business Development Center. The workshop series will be held in two parts at Polaris MEP’s Providence headquarters on February 13th and 27th, and is designed to equip manufacturers with the marketing tool kit needed to compete and grow on the local and global stage.

The two parts of the workshop, titled Marketing Redefined & Building a Strategic Marketing Plan Primed for Growth and Marketing Tactics to Implement Now, will bring manufacturers through a marketing journey that begins with the changing role of marketing and end with more granular tactical initiatives that manufacturers should be leveraging for long-term success. Additional topics will include building a formidable digital presence, lead generation best practices, and leveraging marketing automation tools for growth.

“Manufacturers often sell to such a niche audience that many I speak with feel that marketing is an ineffective, impractical way to grow their business,” Ciunci states when asked about the workshop series. “My goal is for every attendee to walk away with a changed mindset and a more positive and clear outlook regarding the ways marketing can help them achieve their growth objectives.”
