Pull quotes from SHOP/09


We are trying to compress all of the advice we collected from SHOP/09, held yesterday at the Portland Center for Performing Arts. There is so much! We decided to pull just a few of our favorite quotes from the day:

“Don’t sell your product. Sell your story.” ~Jen Scott, Maxwell PR

“Stop having sales.” ~Sarah Shaoul, Black Wagon

“You already have an inherent hook, if you’re LOCAL. That’s as good as a gift basket. That’s your in.” ~Laura Gunderson, The Oregonian

“Your brand is bigger than your business!” ~unknown, speaking to Wicked Quick Founder Tarran Pitschka

“I love Twitter. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.” ~Dina Nishioka, Provenance Hotels
