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 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
"Being able to leave the class with new knowledge, a mentor and new connections is going to be very beneficial."
- Cathy Shaw, Fort Gordon Family & Morale, Welfare & Recreation
