Bulldog Reporter's PR University Presents a New Webinar

OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2011) - PR Pros looking to get started using game-based marketing, and discover where it is heading in the coming months and years should join us on this exclusive webinar called: Game-Based PR: How to Create Intense Engagement, Plus Increase Followers and Sales ... Plus Have Fun! and find out what they need to know to play -- and win -- this new marketing game.

"Gamification" of marketing is here to stay. So the question for PR and marketing pros who want to stay on top -- or get ahead -- in their careers is, "How do I learn what I need to know about game-based marketing and start to use it to further my brand ... and my career?"

PR University has lined up just the speaker to answer these questions and many more about game-based marketing: Gabe Zichermann, co-author of the definitive new book on the subject, "Game-Based Marketing: Inspire Customer Loyalty Through Rewards, Challenges and Contests."

This exclusive PR University webinar titled: Game-Based PR: How to Create Intense Engagement, Plus Increase Followers and Sales ... Plus Have Fun! takes place on Thursday, March 24, at 1PM EDT (noon CDT; 11AM MDT; 10AM PDT).

Featuring:

Gabe Zichermann: Chair, Gamification Summit; Author, "Game-Based Marketing," "Gamification by Design"
