There are many ways to market your business, but in the digital age, online branding is paramount to any company’s success.
From content marketing to social media, there are countless ways for companies to grow their businesses online. However, with so many options, sometimes knowing where to start is the hardest part. Luckily, you don’t have to go it alone.
On September 23, WhatcomTalk Community Manager, Stacee Sledge, will join Yelp Bellingham Community Ambassador, Jennifer Jones, and PR Consulting Inc. Marketing Director, Patti Rowlson, for an Online Branding Power Hour Panel Discussion in the Dorothy Haggen Conference Room (2211 Rimland Dr., Suite #106, Bellingham) from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
The Power Hour Panel is designed to help local business owners and entrepreneurs learn more about the importance of online branding.
“I’m really excited to be a part of this panel with Patti and Jennifer,” says Sledge. “We all work hard in our community to educate and help businesses on the best ways to use online marketing to connect with and grow their customer base.”
Whether you want to leverage your social media reputation, create engaging content about your business, or learn how to respond to online customer reviews, these marketing pros will provide the tips and tools you need to boost your online presence easily and successfully.
“I’ll be discussing the many ways WhatcomTalk works with local businesses to tell their stories through featured articles on WhatcomTalk.com and the different ways we use content marketing to help position their brands in front of a wide variety of local consumers,” explains Sledge. “Social media and our online Talk platform combine to be such powerful parts of what we do for our clients. Every share and every like creates a ripple of positive branding for these businesses, as their stories are widely circulated throughout Whatcom County and beyond.”
Attendees of the September 23 event are encouraged to bring questions to ask the panel. “I’m especially excited that this will be an audience-directed event where we can answer questions and discuss issues that people have when it comes to online branding and marketing,” says Sledge.
Whether you’re a soon-to-be college grad, a small business marketer, or the owner of your own company, this hour-long panel discussion is designed to benefit businesses, marketers and entrepreneurs of all types and skill levels.
Space for the September 23 event is limited. Tickets are $15 and available in advance online.
