Tonight: Get up and practice pitching your concept or sit back and learn how to pitch your app

Two great events in Portland tonight, which makes it tough to decide where to be when. But hey, good problem to have, right? Right.

So choose now. Are you headed to Mobile Portland or to Pitch Club tonight?

Pitch Club will help you improve your ability to pitch your business to investors and potential customers. You’ll get feedback from judges Noah Pepper of Lucky Sort and local investor Merrick. Things kick off around 6PM at PIE.

As always, the same rules apply. If you show up, you have to pitch.

For more info, visit Pitch Club.

Or maybe you’re looking to absorb some insights from other folks about how to pitch your app or product? Well, you’re in luck. Mobile Portland has just what you’re seeking, this month, Mobile App Marketing: Selling Your Apps.

Marketing your iOS/Android/other app is tough. There are lots of app stores, most of them have ultra-specific rules, and it’s easy for your app to get lost in the noise created by thousands of competitors. So how do app marketers actually sell apps within this landscape? What marketing techniques work, and what’s up with that black hat stuff that gets crappy apps into the top charts? (Note: we promise not to entice you to the dark side during this presentation.)

At this Mobile Portland panel, we’ll hear from Portland mobile marketing gurus Elia Freedman, Andy Rosic, and Dave Howell on a panel moderated by Janet Johnson.

Things kick of around 6PM at Urban Airship. For more information or to RSVP, visit Mobile Portland.
