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 July - December. Classes are held on the last Wednesday of the month (excluding December).
"The course was full of meaningful and helpful information and basically gave us the blueprint to determine our own marketing plan. After the course, I felt as though I had the skills, the language and the confidence to be able to show how important creating a marketing plan truly is and we've done so well! Since the class, CFNB has been able to create a small marketing budget as well as increase our social media presence and volunteer participation."
- Jessica McCormick, Center for New Beginnings
