Augusta Metro Chamber Launches

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). 

"This class gives marketing representatives a chance to meet other professionals in the business and bounce ideas off one another. It's the perfect networking opportunity. It's also a great way to make sure we have the tools we need to stay connected to our community."
- Juli Means, Jordan Trotter Commercial Real Estate

"I signed up for this class to have a better understanding of how to improve our marketing efforts, as well as determine what is the best cost effective strategy for CounterSync. This Small Business Marketing Academy has exceeded my expectations. I look forward to the benefits of this class for many years to come."
-Bill Phillips, CounterSync
