Small business marketing has unique challenges as businesses need to do more with less. CFU has always been the friend of the little guy who is running a business on a shoestring. 
With the internet and social media, there are so many options and so much to know. Marketing dollars are limited, so you need to know how to maximize your ROI. A day-long symposium designed for small businesses to gain tools and strategies for marketing their businesses.  These marketing experts will give you strategies and tools to power up your small business marketing. Participants will attend a keynote that gives an overview of marketing principles and then have a choice of three different breakout sessions. The day ends with a Q & A panel discussion.
8:30AM: Check in
Keynote Presentation: A Strong Marketing Plan = A Strong Business
We’ll kick off the marketing boot camp with a big picture look at the basics of marketing for your small business: what you are selling, what your pricing position is; who your target market is; how much competition you face, and which 3–5 types of marketing will work best for your business. We’ll also cover how to set realistic marketing goals and how to test and track if your marketing is working. Jennifer Croft has taught more than 3,000 people how to start and run their own small businesses. She has also worked on more than 600 websites. She is the founder of 5-Minute Classes, an online resource for small business owners.
