NYU Lesson: Twitter Hustle 101


Published on

Given as a part of a Marketing certificate program through NYUSCPS, this deck breaks down Social Media and Twitter basics, and includes tips for Guerrilla PR/Marketing (and how to optimize conferences). It includes highlights from Instacube, one of the most successful crowdfunding projects. It was first presented to Matthew Knell's class of geniuses and I hope to present similar stories to classrooms and conferences in the future!
