Session III – Marketing Strategy & Social Media

Many business owners spend significant money on marketing. But few have a research-based marketing strategy that ensures every one of those dollars is well spent.

This course aims to help entrepreneurs at any stage build a foundational marketing strategy that will inform every marketing tactic they use. This course will also provide basic information about building a business website, and how to make sure your business has a presence on social media.

By the end of this course, you will have completed the following:

1. Assessed and refined your business’s values and mission statement

2. Developed and delivered your business’s elevator pitch

3. Determined the social media platforms that your target customers use

4. Operated these platforms as an entrepreneur according to best practices

5. Created “repurposed content” that attracts social media users and links them to your website

6. Evaluated and chosen a social media management tool for your business
