Applications for the Augusta Metro Chamber Small Business Marketing Academy: January – June 2018 program are available for download on the Chamber’s website. The Academy, presented by South State Bank, is an opportunity for small business owners/managers to learn, share and plan for a growing thriving business.
Participants come together once per month for 6 months for a day of learning from local industry experts and to engage in roundtable discussion applying practical advice and best practices. The Academy runs twice per year with classes beginning in January and July. Classes are held on the last Wednesday of the month (excluding December).
The first day of the January – June 2018 program will held on January 31, 2018 and will focus on “Essential Marketing Plan Ingredients.” Learn the steps and components of creating (or updating) a marketing plan. From a panel of marketing professionals representing small, medium and large companies in our region, participants will develop a clear understanding of the fundamentals required in an effective plan. From situation analysis to market identification, hear how the experts map their plans down to the details.
