HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University, in partnership with the Hammond Chamber of Commerce, will host a free seminar August 26 on mobile marketing.
Titled "Mobile Marketing for Small Business," the event will be held at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, 1514 Martens Drive in Hammond from 9 to 11 a.m.
"Many consumers are using mobile devices to find what they need, to assess their options, to make quick decisions and on-the-spot purchases. Small businesses and non-profits that embrace mobile marketing now will be in the best position to take advantage of this growing trend," said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Southeastern Small Business Development Center. "We can help you understand the phenomenon of mobile marketing to help your business stay ahead of the competition and how you can leverage it as a service opportunity to help clients and members access the information they are searching for."
Summers said the class will be instructed by Kim Walker, owner of 5 Stones Media. Walker is also a regional representative for Constant Contact and travels throughout the state to educate businesses on ways to reach and keep their customer base through effective and affordable marketing technologies.
There is no cost to attend the event; however, pre-registration is preferred, as seating is limited. For more information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at 985-549-3831 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Online registration is available at www.lsbdc.org.
