Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“Marketing plans are equally as critical as business plans,” Motley said. “They provide a roadmap of how to get from point A to point B. When used correctly it is a powerful tool, which result in business success.”
Motley will walk entrepreneurs through writing a situational analysis, creating primary marketing goals and objectives, analyzing the market environment, identifying marketing strategies, producing a marketing action plan, crafting a budget, and measuring results with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Attendees will leave with an outline, practical tools, and a deeper understanding of how effective marketing plans can enhance and propel their companies.
Wake Technical Community College is fully accredited with five campuses and offers more than 180 associate’s degrees, diplomas, and certificates, as well as non-credit continuing education programs, customized workforce training, small business support, public safety officer training, basic skills courses and personal enrichment classes.
The SBC is a state-funded organization that provides prospective and existing small business owners with information or assistance for starting or expanding a small business through confidential one-n-one counseling, seminars, workshops, classes and access to a resource library at zero cost to participants.
