     HAMMOND -- The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana University and regional partners are hosting the fourth in a series of brown bag networking seminars on June 28.
     Held the fourth Monday of each month at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center at 1415 Martens Drive in Hammond, the series addresses topics related to business trends and the economy. Attendees bring their own lunch, and the LSBDC provides coffee, water and sodas. 
     “The topic for June is ‘The Power of Email Marketing’ and will be presented by Kim Soape Walker with In Your Corner Marketing,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Southeastern SBDC. “Attendees at this presentation will gain a clear understanding of how email marketing works, why it should have a place in marketing plans and what steps should be taken to implement an effective email marketing plan.”
     Summers said topics include building an email list organically and ethically, creative ways to develop content, crafting subject lines, out-of-the-box ideas for increasing open-rates and more.
     The program begins with networking opportunities from 11:30 a.m. to noon, followed by the presentation and open discussion with dismissal at 1 p.m. Cost to attend the seminar is $5.
     Since seating is guaranteed only to registered attendees, pre-registration is suggested.  
     The next seminar in the series is July 26, and the topic is business taxes.
