Effective marketing gives small business owners a choice

The choice to raise prices, the choice of the sorts of customers to work with, the choice of employees, and even the choice of what their business becomes.

Hear from a few more of our previous hosts

"The presentation was filled with great ideas. Brian made us look at several marketing practices we are currently doing in a different and out-of-the-box way. It was fun to think with someone who has a different lens who can zoom out and see other ways that could be more effective."

- Peg Raney, Executive Director of Jefferson Matters: Main Street

"This will be helpful to us (Evanston Main Street) and our promotions members. I think a future attendee should expect to learn how to effectively, authentically and easily market their business online and in-person." - Mieke Madrid, Evanston Wyoming Main Street

“It felt great to be the host organization and to have other community partners thank us for hosting and having them attend!… 
Also, [we learned] that there is a HUGE interest in the community about learning more on the topic!” - Emily Ginneberge, Director Main Street Mason City

“The workshop definitely opened a lot of eyes to the spaces on the internet that we ‘own’ and the spaces we ‘rent’”.
Even our most technologically hesitant attendee was ready to jump into collecting email addresses for a business newsletter.” - Fred Zesiger, Director Main Street Ottumwa

"The feedback I received from few participants was that 10/10 they would recommend the workshop to others!" - Adam Burk, Program Director Main Street Maine
