Paid Media Planning Webinar Series

As previously announced, the California Tobacco Control Program’s (CTCP) regional in-person Paid Media Planning Trainings have been canceled. In their place, CTCP’s Media Unit is hosting a two-part series of webinar trainings. The webinars will feature much of the same content as the trainings and build on the 2018 Paid Media Technical Assistance Sessions and Communications Plan Trainings to offer attendees a deeper look into best practices of paid media. All CTCP-funded partners are invited to attend. Please see below for dates and times:
Paid Media Planning: Aligning Media and Campaign Efforts Webinar | Tuesday, July, 14 from 10:00-11:30 am
Topics will include aligning paid media to best support project objectives and building communications plans.
Paid Media Planning: Paid Social and Digital Media Webinar | Tuesday, July 21 from 10:00-11:30 am
Topics will include digital tactics to consider at the local level and paid social media.
