OUR VISION
To be the premier comprehensive resource for the Cherokee County business community.
OUR MISSION
To promote business and the community while expanding the economy and enhancing the quality of life.
 
FROM OUR SPONSOR

Many businesses trying to go "social" are feeling the same way, wondering: Is this really worth my time? Can it really help grow my business?  Yes on both accounts - social media is the public personality of your enterprise and it can bring people to your door. Managing and m aintaining an active social presence is critical to doing that , but you don't need to move mountains.
 
 
Businesses that find the most success in social marketing set goals and objectives; choose the right platforms; follow a plan using tools; and monitor results. On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, the UGA Small Business Development Center at Kennesaw State University is hosting a three-hour workshop  Social Media Strategies for Small Business That Won't Drain Your Budget or Productivity presented by Lisa Tilt, CEO, Full Tilt Consulting.  

This workshop will cover how to:
  • set goals and objectives
  • choose the right platforms
  • effectively use social media tools 
  • decide what to do and what not to do
  • monitor results and take your social media marketing to the next level
