I’ll be teaching a class on Viral Marketing Strategies through the Kirkwood/Small Business Development Center on Wednesday, November 7th.

The Kirkwood Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Marion is hosting the class to help small businesses learn about online marketing, social media, and other marketing tools available at low- or no- cost. We’ll talk about how a website, blog, and social media work together to create relationships with customers and potential customers. You’ll discover information to help you decide which social media tools are best for your business,  managing your time on social media, using social media to share offers and information, and getting found on the web.

The class is very interactive and I like to find out what participants want to take-away and then I do my best to present that information.

The class will be at the Kirkwood Training and Outreach Services Center, 3375 Armar Drive, in Marion on Wednesday November 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The cost for the class is $29. Registration and payment can be made online through Kirkwood’s Continuing Education Registration website. http://kirkwood.augusoft.net/index.cfm?method=ClassInfo.ClassInformation&int_class_id=32592&int_category_id=1&int_sub_category_id=4.

The Kirkwood SBDC provides assistance to current and future small businesses in Linn, Benton, and Jones Counties. The center collaborates with federal, state, local and private resources to ensure maximum benefit to clients. Its expert, confidential and free business counseling includes business planning, financing options, market research, loan proposal assistance, business growth strategies, new business guidance, business succession strategies and business disaster counseling.

I hope to see you there. Be sure to share this information with others who may be interested.
