The backstory: in June 2012, Web.com became the umbrella sponsor of the Web.com Tour and an official marketing partner of the PGA TOUR. They then developed the Web.com Small Business Forums as a way to bring additional benefit to communities where Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR events are held.
At these forums, experts from Web.com would discuss things like:
- market a small business using social media
- search marketing pointers for business people
- how to enchance your business web presence
- and increasing your website traffic
… just to name a few. These live events were presented free of charge, and 25 more of them are to be launched across the United States before the end of 2013.The first one of this year will happen in conjunction with the Chitimacha Louisiana Open on March 21st.
Web.com will host these Small Business Forums in conjunction with SCORE, America’s premier source of free and confidential small business advice. (Previously known as Service Corps Of Retired Executives, the organization is now commonly known as SCORE.)
Why did SCORE become involved in the Web.com Business Forums?
“SCORE’s mission is to grow successful businesses across America, one at a time,” says W. Kenneth Yancey, Jr., SCORE CEO. “Small businesses are the engine of our economy, and both SCORE and Web.com are excited about this opportunity to reach more small businesses and help them succeed.”
To find out when they’ll be in your neck of the woods, visit the Small Business Forum page, and click on the “View All Dates” link below the next three upcoming listings pictured under the map. All of the events are free, and even include a few goodies. Just remember that you MUST register to attend – you cannot just show up.
Each forum is just a few hours, a worthwhile investment to learn more about how to get more done with online marketing resources.
