Buyer personas are fictional representations of your ideal customers. Developing buyer personas gives you a clear picture of who you're marketing to, where to find them and makes it easier to develop effective, targeted content that speaks to your ideal customers. This webinar will show you how you can create buyer personas and use them to develop a marketing strategy that will help you bring in more customers.






Monday, May 16th
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Cost: $29

Some people think one campaign, or a single marketing vehicle, can take a prospect from awareness into consideration, prove your credibility and value, and then close a sale. Maybe this is true if you’re selling gumballs, but almost every other business requires a funnel approach. Modo Modo Agency CEO Moira Vetter will discuss what a funnel is, what the stages of consideration and purchase are and how to ensure you have all the types of marketing content you need to win the business every time.

The Chamber hosted an Earth Day Recycling Event on Friday, April 22, 2022, in partnership with Cobb EMC and supported by Electrify EVSE. Other supporting companies that accepted collections included Next Step Ministries, SAFE KIDS Cherokee County, Greater Cherokee Kiwanis, Cherokee County Master Gardeners, Premier Surplus, and 1st Secure Shredding.

During this event, 275 cars dropped off nearly one thousand pounds of recycled electronics, over three tons of documents that were shredded (equating to saving nearly 56 trees!), 65 pairs of tennis shoes, 326 gardening containers, approximately 50 aluminum cans, twenty expired children’s car seats, and more!
