Free Marketing Classes in Burnsville, MN

MarketSmart Academy is hosting three free summer classes this August to help you increase sales for the new season. These three courses are great for discovering ways to finish summer strong before launching into another busy fall.

On August 21, before all those looming fall shows, Cynde Bock will lead her course: Expo Marketing 101. Dreading those dull hours sitting at a table while potential clients walk right by—or raid the free candy bowl and then walk right by? Cynde reveals the secret to selling your product visually in the three seconds it takes to pass your company’s booth. Forget the candy bowl; learn how to hook them, pull them in, and keep them there long enough to actually generate some sales leads.

Then, on August 23, Jason Kocina will offer his course: Creating a Social Media Plan. The Internet is still evolving, and so is online marketing. Is your company up to date on the latest tools? This class will allow you to strategize on the many social media outlets, and learn the newest techniques to successful online sales generation.

Closing up our summer blitz on August 29, Heather Champine will hold her class: How to Make Your Product a Celebrity in the News! These days, if a celebrity so much as sneezes, we can count on the paparazzi to make the incident famous in a matter of minutes. What if the same concept could be applied to marketing your product? While often overlooked and unused, publicity is an extremely effective marketing tool. Learn how to incorporate reporters and the media into your marketing campaign.

With fall coming up fast, it’s important to be ready. Join us for a refresher, or adopt a brand new tactic for your marketing arsenal. Sign up for a summer class today—before summer disappears!
