What is your brand saying?!?! If you don’t know, The Garner Circle can definitely tell you! Over the weekend, I had the great opportunity to hang out with The Garner Circle at their 2nd Annual “F.A.M.E. PR 101” Workshop. From the scope of fashion, art, music and entertainment, participants got an opportunity to learn the skills to enter the world of publicity, execute campaigns and launch promotional parties. Here are a couple of clips from the “Music” segment of the workshop. Indie artists, listen up because you’ll find some golden nuggets in these clips!!
