Seattle - JumpStart Your Business - Friday
Fri, May 19, 2017, 9:00 AM – 2:45 PM PDT
Jump Start Your Business with a four-day workshop series aimed to help you start and grow your small business. Join us for one class, one day, or all four days. The schedule is as follows:
Friday, May 19
9 - 10:30 a.m. | Elements of Strategic Marketing
When you're running a business, you just don't have time to try every marketing tactic possible. That means smart business owners are strategic and choose only what's the best fit for their goals, skills, and resources. Join us to explore what key elements need to be considered in making a strategic plan, how to evaluate your options, and write a plan that is brief and flexible, but still helpful in guiding your marketing decisions.
10:45 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. | Which Social Media Site is Right for You?
You know social media is a valuable tool, but as a busy small business owner, you have no idea whether Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+ or any combination of these is a good time investment. Learn about various social media outlets and how to determine which are best for helping you stay connected to your customers and stakeholders.
12:30 - 1 p.m. | Brown Bag Lunch & Learn: Blogging 101
Bring your lunch and learn practical blogging tips that build your brand and increase revenues.
1:15 - 2:45 p.m. | Pitch for Success
Wrap-up your JumpStart experience with the opportunity to pitch your business idea to a panel of experts and receive feedback. The number of pitching opportunities is limited, therefore not everyone who registers will be able to present- spectators are welcome to watch the fun. ***Important: A request for your presentation will be emailed to you on Monday, May 15. You must register and respond to the request for your presentation by Wednesday, May 17 at 1 p.m.***
