Let's Grow Together
Free Workshops from the 
Small Business Development Center!

Marketing--sounds easy but it can make or break a business.

What's my message--is it clear and concise?  Who do I target and how do I reach them?  Are there inexpensive marketing strategies?  How does Google lead searchers to my website?

Get the answers during the Chamber's 
September 1st 1 workshop on
  "Creative Marketing for Your Small Business."
Lead by business experts with the Small Business Development Center
