PRLog - Jun. 28, 2012 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- Raleigh NC – Directors of North Carolina Small Business Centers (SBC) convened at 3 community college venues across the state mid-June for a day-long training in building a strong Web presence. They enthusiastically received vital marketing advice to be shared with the small businesses they counsel on a daily basis at their respective Community Colleges.
Business coach and social media consultant Martin Brossman designed the presentation to highlight current social media marketing methods that can generate higher results than traditional marketing, options for creating and managing low-cost websites, and integrating new trends in social validation. The SBC directors appreciated the relevant real-world examples of small and micro business successes that were shared.
“This training is 100% aligned with my mission of propelling economic growth in North Carolina through micro and small local-owned businesses,”
“Between social media and free resources on the Web, we have powerful tools to transform the wonderful small towns in NC today, but making the most of them does demand we do things differently than we did before,” Brossman added. “Great sources for understanding online marketing are the free and low-cost classes offered by Small Business Centers. The Small Business Centers are one of the best examples of state-funded services that are truly creating more jobs by building businesses--not businesses of 300 or more, but businesses of 50 and less. This is where the hope is; this is what the Small Business Centers serve.”
