SCORE and the Small Business Center of Sandhills Community College jointly sponsor the "Business Basics" series of six seminars that are valuable for every entrepreneur.
"This seminar, straight from the trenches of real American business experience, brings you marketing savvy that you can apply to your business starting immediately!" a SCORE news release said. "Best of all, many of the tips cost very little or even nothing to implement, yet they have been proven to be very effective. Marketing is an 'attitude,' and it involves the management of many disciplines."
The seminar will define and describe the various forms of marketing for profit, how to evaluate relevant demographics and other consumer buying habits, low-cost research and other marketing techniques, how to think creatively to get more value out of your marketing dollars, how to develop a successful marketing plan and more.
"Sales is clearly the lifeblood of any business, and this SCORE seminar is intended to show you a better way to increase your sales through creative marketing techniques," SCORE said in the release.
