Small Business Marketing Academy

presented by South State Bank

Comprehensive. Classroom Style. Curriculum Driven.

Small Business Marketing Academy is an opportunity for small businesses to learn, share and plan for a growing, thriving business. Participants come together one day a month for six months to learn from local industry experts, engage in round table discussion for practical advice and best practices, and develop their own personal marketing plan.

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). 

"Time well spent learning to market my business in ways that are doable for me with many being low or no cost."
- Margaret Trevathan, Trevathan Goat

The Academy expanded my knowledge of local marketing and challenged me to think outside the box. The presenters were knowledgeable in their field and the follow up mentorship is extremely beneficial.
- Heather Johnson, Southpaw Roofing
