Join* StayLocal, and attend a free in-depth workshop October 8th from 9 am- Noon. Learn how your retail or wholesale business can accomplish goals more easily and more profitably this holiday season at three back-to-back morning sessions on marketing plans, Facebook ads and swipe fees.
StayLocal welcomes the following experts who will share their marketing savvy:
9 a.m. Running With Scissors. Serial entrepreneur and founder of Dirty Coast Blake Haney will share lessons learned from his years gambling on marketing strategies so you don’t have to. Presenter: Blake Haney, Founder and CEO, Bayou Brands & Dirty Coast and Co-Founder, locally.com
10 a.m. Online Ads, Social Media and more. Facebook advertising on average eats up 25% of an independent business owner's marketing budget (ILSR, 2019) and the crowded social media market is competitive. Hear tips then strategize your holiday digital ads budget. Presenter: Daniela Capistrano, DCAP Media
11 a.m. Cost of Doing Business. Intermediary options like Opt Blue and others don't obligate owners to completely overhaul their business' payment processing system in order to offer customers more payment options, and you better terms. Presenter: Alison Burns, Founder and CEO, Precision Payment Systems
Spending one morning with StayLocal’s experts will help local businesses accomplish sales goals more easily and more profitably throughout many months of holidays ahead. The dynamic, walkable commercial corridors in New Orleans' neighborhoods draw tourists and locals to #ShopSmall on Small Business Saturday, the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. This year, November 30th will mark the 10th anniversary of this new tradition, which StayLocal is championing for New Orleans.
On Small Business Saturday 2018, #ShopSmall trended in the top 5 on social media throughout the day. Spending the morning with StayLocal will help you plan to utilize marketing strategies that fit best for your business growth strategy this holiday season.
