“Many small business owners are very good at doing what they do, but they struggle with marketing and advertising," said Buchholz. "During this seminar, we provide down-to-earth, practical ideas that any business can use to better focus their marketing efforts. There will be plenty of time for questions and issues that are on the minds of participants."
 
Buchholz says that participants of this seminar will discover basic marketing principles that have a bottom-line impact. They will learn how to establish a distinct identity for their business;  the most effective way to distribute their message; how to build value for what they do; how to connect with their customers; and how to build their business without wasting a lot of money. "This is a practical, real-world look at ways to improve the effectiveness of and return on your marketing and advertising investment," commented Buchholz.
