White Papers online webinar February 15th

One of the things that was discussed in last night’s class was the power of whitepapers.  In fact, I’m attending an online webinar this Thursday on the very subject.  I recommend visiting the White Paper Source website to learn more.

I don’t see the actual class on the website, but I’m sure you can signup if you contact him.  The webcast is entitled “Creating White Papers that Generate Leads (How to Lure Prospects With Words).” and is Thursday at 2 PM.

Hope to see you there.

Lively Internet Marketing Class

Last night was probably one of our best ever SCORE Internet Marketing classes.  Don Sinclair gave some excellent information on the benefits of an email newsletter.  He even took them through how to create one using an online service.

There were over 25 students present and they came from all different small businesses including…

  1. Website developer
  2. Modular Homes salesperson
  3. Management consultant
  4. WHKP Radio Station
  5. Chiropractor
  6. Acupuncturist
  7. Medical and psychiatry private practice
  8. Concierge
  9. Data Communications equipment salesperson
  10. British sports car restoration / sales and service of Triumph car parts
  11. Affordable bedding online sales
  12. Massage body works

And that’s just a partial list!!

My part consisted of the basics of how to market a website using the search engines.  We discussed the basics of PPC and SEO.  It was a lot of fun and several spent time after talking about their business and what they are trying to do.

By the way, we also talked about blogging.  If any of the students are reading this post, feel free to leave a comment below.
