Oregon Coast Marketing Workshops (North, Central, South) 

During this extensive workshop, our goal is to provide business with a very actionable roadmap to getting started with using online marketing to help promote their business. As part of the workshop experience, we will provide hands-on assistance and share the best practices to help motivate small business owners to take action in using the free tools (and platforms) available online to start growing their businesses!
Workshop Presentation (Part 1)
In the first section of the workshop, we will overview online marketing as a whole and why it is a great FREE tool in building brand awareness. We will cover Google My Business, Google Maps, Apple Maps, Yelp for Business, TripAdvisor, Instagram, and Facebook. We will provide easy (non-complex) action items as well as what is most important to focus on when getting started. We will also share best practices on how to use each platform best. Finally, we will provide a valuable Q&A portion for each tool / platform covered.
**Estimated time: 2 hours (90min presentation + 30min Q&A)

Lunch included

Workshop Hands-On Guidance (Part 2)
In the second section of the workshop, we will create space and time for each owner to open their laptop (or smartphone) and actually get started implementing the action items presented. We will be available during this time to answer case-by-case questions and provide additional guidance / support to those who need it.
Estimated time: approximately 2 hours
