Upcoming Workshop Description

Marketing & Promotion: Finding Your Niche

Learn how to identify and attract customers to your product or service by finding their real wants and needs.

Learn how to get your message to those target customers. Determine why they should want to buy from you

and keep coming back. We will look at methods to create and build awareness, generate a sale and encourage

repeat business.

Marketing, Promotion, Advertising and Sales are synergistic, but need to be understood separately for maximum

effect. In this workshop you will learn exactly what they are and how to use them in your plan.

INSTRUCTOR: Carl Woodard of SCORE presents this workshop. During his extensive career, Carl marketed, managed

and sold many of the country's largest food brands, such as those of Hunt Foods: Hunt's Tomato Sauce,

Swiss Miss Cocoa, Wesson Oil, and Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Popping Corn.
