Total BS is partnered with the Blackstone LaunchPad (read about their partnership here) and will be sharing their successful approaches to inbound marketing and TM pending "Irreverent Strategery" as well as their story with the audience. Be sure to stay tuned for more info on their hands-on workshop scheduled for October 12.
About the Entrepreneurs-in-Residence
Total BS Media is a full-service firm, specializing in content marketing and public relations. They push clients to approach content with what we call Irreverent Strategery (TM pending), which is the process of taking a holistic look at business goals, buyer personas, trends, and marketing history and then applying an irreverent spin to stand out in an extremely crowded marketplace. The goal is to entertain, educate and elevate a brand to reach new, and existing customers with a more interesting and intriguing dialogue.
