There was also an interesting panel discussion on hemp marketing trends:

KushCon Marketing Panel - Bianca Robinson, Tim Melnyk, Jude Bond and Elston Brown

Bianca Robinson shared her experience about the importance of educating the hemp industry to grow any brand.

She discussed email marketing, how to engage with potential and current clients, and how to educate them.

Tim Melnyk discussed the importance of unique sales propositions and how to build a brand with loyalty from customers, not just lowering prices to get customers like most brands do.

Most of the panelists on hemp marketing trends agreed that SEO is one of the most important, influential traffic sources for promoting cannabis brands.
