The University of Georgia Small Business Development Center (UGA SBDC) will launch the first class in their new Small Business Accelerator Series, Accelerate Your Marketing: Grow Business and Build Loyal Customers, in Moultrie, Georgia on June 18, 2019.

The UGA Small Business Accelerator Series provides business owners with the tools and resources they need– and fast. One day of accelerated training gets small business owners up to speed quickly to learn important skills they can take back and use in their business.

Accelerate Your Marketing, first in the series, is an interactive course designed to teach small business owners and key employees how to market more effectively and efficiently. In one day of accelerated training, attendees will get up to speed on their marketing knowledge to develop innovative marketing strategies that build loyal customers and grow business.

Key takeaways include:

  • Better understand customers and where they are.

  • Learn tactics and best practices to reach and retain customers.

  • Create effective marketing messages.

  • Learn how to develop an innovative Marketing Plan to grow business.

“The Accelerator Series provides education and tools business owners can take back and implement in their business. But we don’t stop there,” says Debbie Finney, SBDC Rural Outreach Specialist.  “At the end of class, attendees have the opportunity, if they choose, to schedule a follow-up meeting with a UGA SBDC consultant at no-cost to continue working on their marketing strategies and their business. The Small Business Development Center, a Public Service and Outreach Extension of UGA, provides no cost confidential consulting to for-profit businesses in every county of Georgia. We want to be sure business owners not only learn in class, but that they also have the continued one-on-one support from their local UGA SBDC office to implement what they learn.”

Accelerate Your Marketing is 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM Tuesday June 18 at Southern Regional Technical College, Moultrie, Georgia. Early Bird registration is $39 using the code ACCELERATE at
