MONTICELLO, Ark. — Helping small businesses increase their appeal to modern audiences is the goal of the “Modern Marketing” training series this fall, presented by the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) at the University of Arkansas at Monticello (UAM).
The four-part series will be offered in a hybrid format with in-person and virtual participation options.
“You can join us here at UAM to watch the presentations, or you can join us online from anywhere,” said Aimee Weaver, director of the center. “We are thrilled to offer such high-quality training to local businesses at no cost. This is a great opportunity to learn from an expert.”
