Small businesses don’t have the resources to hire a big ad agency, but that doesn’t mean they should neglect marketing.
Studies suggest about 60 percent of people prefer to buy new products from brands familiar to them. An upcoming workshop of Princeton SCORE will explain why small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs need to work on their brand from day one. Attendees will learn market assessment and be given steps for creating a marketing strategy, plan, and campaigns.
The free workshop will be held Friday, March 7, at 10 a.m. at the Hopewell Branch of the Mercer County Library in Pennington. For more information, visit princeton.score.org.
