Kurian’s first TEC TV video, “A Simple Pricing Strategy to Increase Your Revenues” is an insightful and entertaining look at how a strategic advertising mix of budget, core and premium brands can greatly increase a retail company’s revenue.

It’s the first of a four videos by Kurian on different aspects of marketing and sales, all under five minutes in length. The series  will culminate in a branding webinar on May 25, called “A Beginner’s Guide to Creating a High Impact Brand.”

In addition to the launch of the TEC TV video series and the May 25 webinar, Kurian will be offering an intensive three-hour workshop on June 15, entitled “Persuasion Strategies – How to Influence, Motivate and Persuade Anyone!” Registration details will soon be available at
