Bare Minimum Digital Marketing

Bare Minimum Digital Marketing

Contrary to popular opinion, your business does not HAVE to be on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, have an email list AND a YouTube channel. But how do you evaluate where you should be? Jump in with Loveland Business Development Center Program Director, Kat Hart, as we explore:

  • How do I determine which platforms my business should be on?
  • What are the ways I can streamline my digital marketing to get my message out while not driving myself crazy?
  • What are best practices I should implement for my digital marketing?
  • Where can I find resources to figure out where my customers are online?

Digital marketing can easily get overwhelming – let’s tackle what it means for your business and formulate an actionable plan!

[Webinar] Buying or Selling a Business: Offers, Contracts and Closing

[Webinar] Buying or Selling a Business: Offers, Contracts and Closing

In our foundational overview seminar, The 9 Stages of Buying or Selling A Business,  we cover all stages of buying or selling a business from start to finish so that the participants can gain a clear sense of what to expect as they move through the buying and selling process. 

In this 90 minute virtual seminar we focus specifically on the 3 components of the sale that require both parties to enter into agreements, and what those agreements must cover. 

Beginning with how and why to make an offer on a business, the program moves on to entering into a formal purchase contract, and then finally to what goes on at the closing table. 

As always, these seminars are designed for both buyers and sellers, we believe it is important that both sides of a transaction are as knowledgeable and prepared as possible.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
