They're calling it "From Zero to Marketing Hero." Their promise is to provide tools and strategies that will help attendees grow their businesses in 2020. The event is slated for January 16 at Glensheen Mansion

"There is more content online than ever before," says Ms. Quaker. "Your business is not just competing with the shop next door. It's competing with every business in the world that offers similar products or services."

Social media has been around more than a dozen years, and the Internet 25, and digital content is expanding at a pace that makes your head spin.

Strategies and techniques covered will include customer profiling, messaging, Design, and basics to running their Facebook Ads successfully.

"The web and social channels are overrun with ads from bigger companies that have a lot more resources than a small business may have," Ms. Quaker explains. "A business that wants to capture and hold attention has to stand out and connect effectively with their potential customers."
