“Audience Architect’s distribution service is a very useful tool that has helped me expand the reach of my marketing for upcoming performances and auditions.  It is the fastest and most efficient way for me to get print materials in front of the eyes of hundreds of dance advocates and potential audience members in the Chicago area.”
