Local business owners and entrepreneurs can learn how to use marketing to reach new customers and improve sales at an upcoming workshop.
Attendees will learn from public relations experts and newspaper writers and editors about marketing technology and services, how to plan and build a website and how social media can speed the sales cycle, among other tips.
Attendees also will learn how to create a viable pitch to the media. The techniques being offered are designed for application in retail, professional services, hospitality, e-commerce and other industries.
“For many emerging local businesses, marketing and PR is a critical differentiator,” Jamee Haley, executive director of Lowcountry Local First, said in a news release. “As they grow and compete — not only with each other, but also national businesses serving the Charleston marketplace — it’s essential to reach new audiences and deliver unique, engaging messages that set them apart.”
