Community Calendar

Training is something else that all of us "resource partners" offer to the small business community. The good thing is, we all work together planning and promoting workshops, classes and events so there's very little duplication of effort. Listed below is a calendar of events that's updated frequently, if not daily, that includes our SBDC events AND those of our resource partners and other organizations. If it's training that may help you, we want you to know about it, even if it's not our event!

1.      Practice “proven” sales and marketing tactics that will save you time, money, and worry about growth you can’t seem to generate.
2.      Harold will teach you 25 ways to reduce your 2019 budget spending on brochures, newspaper advertising, and billboards (what are they, anyway?).
3.      We will evaluate the classic AIDA model for (ir)relevance in 2019:  Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action (Is this 1964 marketing stuff or the key to higher revenues?).
4.      You will find out if “your landing page” is better than “your take-off page”? Can we prove that or is it just “fake news”?  You do not need a degree in IT from UT to increase sales!
5.      Did anybody at SCORE tell you how Webinaring (new 2019 word) is equally efficient as Ecommercing (new 2019 word)?  We will give you the “facts."
6.      You will be sent an accounting Xcel sheet that will make it easy to record benefits from this workshop (“facts”).  Complete it and send it back to the instructor after 30 days, so your instructor can see if your sales have increased as promised.
