Customer Service
Do you have a new hire working in the store? Maybe you brought on part-time help now that young adults are out of school for the summer. The U.S. Small Business Admistration offers a self-paced training exercise as an introduction to customer service and how it impacts your business. It only takes 30 minutes and could give you a couple more minutes to multi-task while they watch and learn. Click here to access the self-paced program .
Be a Better Marketer
You wear a lot of hats at your small business and maybe numbers aren't your strong suit. You would much rather focus on connecting with people in person to sell more, but with a growing importance around data-driven marketing, being able to analyze your email marketing data is crucial. How can you be sure that email marketing is worth your time? Click here to learn more from URA's benefit provider, Constant Contact .
