These are a few of the reactions that Kevin combats every day.

Part 2: Leveraging Your Website in a Competitive Industry

Wednesday, May 1 from 8:00am - 9:30am

10 years ago, your company started to stand out when it developed its first website. It only needed the basics: history of the company, what does your company offer, a few pictures, and how to contact the company. In today's world, when companies are found or researched online before communication is initiated, not having a website essentially means your company doesn't exist. A website that includes the basics does help, but it doesn't maximize the value of your investment. Come learn about the current trends in online marketing and how to leverage new technology to help your company stand out in a competitive industry.

 

Part 3: Public Relations and Online Reputation Management

Wednesday, June 5 from 8:00am - 9:30am

The internet is a public forum, and people are going to talk about you whether you know it or not. What is your business' approach? How do you thank and reward patrons that provide positive feedback and reviews, what's your protocol when you receive a negative review? Is it possible to remove negative reviews from the Internet? Join us to learn about this super important, yet under-utilized, element of your marketing strategy that can truly make or break the success of your business!


The presentations are a first come first serve basis with a cap of 12 participants. If you are interested, please RSVP by email at gprete@norristown.org.
