Miranda Creative Partners with Regional Innovation Center to Host Complimentary Marketing Sessions, ‘Friyays!’ Through September

Stop by the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut’s downtown Regional Innovation Center every Friday to visit with a Miranda Creative team member in the Chamber’s new collaborative space.  One of their professionals will be working from the Center from 9 am – 2 pm to help you gain new insights on how you can improve your company’s marketing. The advertising and PR firm’s principal Maria Miranda was recently recognized as SBA’s 2024 Connecticut Small Business Person of the Year.  
‘FriYay!’ is open to drop-in meetings throughout the day, but you can also email mpalomino@mirandacreative.com to book a dedicated time slot.  Team members, each an expert in their respective field, will be visiting the Regional Innovation Center on a rotating basis. The Center, opened in October, provides co-working options and flexible meeting space a few minutes’ walk from New London’s city center district and regional transportation hub.
“An impact area that some small businesses may underestimate at first is marketing,” said Tony Sheridan, Chamber President and CEO. “Branding, website design, social media: these topics are critical to promoting and growing any business. The team from Miranda Creative is offering a unique opportunity for candid conversations about subjects that affect every business, especially in today’s competitive consumer climate.”
