Free Workshop on How to Make Money with Your Business Website Set for September 18 at the Birmingham Public Library
Birmingham, Ala. (Sept. 9, 2014) – A free workshop to help businesses boost sales through their website will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18 at the Birmingham Public Library, 2100 Park Place. The session will be from 9:30 to 11 a.m. It’s free but registration is required at http://movetogreaterservice.com/smallbiz.
“A lot of small businesses don’t have the money to do advertising and ad campaigns, so (this workshop) will really be for how to use content marketing and social media to attract the right kind of customers they are looking for,’’ said Andrea Walker, a Birmingham digital strategist and start-up marketing expert scheduled to teach the class. “At the end of the day, I want people to walk away learning something they haven’t learned before and knowing they can do it.’’
Her session will address several topics, including the importance of content marketing, which is how to create and share free content on the web with the goal of attracting potential customers and turning them into repeat customers. The workshop is part of an entrepreneurial series presented by Renasant Bank, Trudy Phillips Consulting Service and the Birmingham Public Library. Sessions on financial management, business plans and more are planned now through February 2015 at Birmingham libraries and Alabaster City Hall. All classes will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
"This free series is part of Renasant Bank’s continuing commitment to further the success of small business owners and entrepreneurs in our area,'' said Tracey Morant Adams, Renasant Bank’s senior vice president small business and community development director.
