Free Half Day Workshops

We love sharing what we know to help other local businesses be successful. Much like 2017, we will be hosting a free half-day workshop each month to help you make the most of your website and marketing. You can look forward to hearing from nationally renowned speaker and marketing director for Kingston Webworks, Ashley Montroy, who has taught sessions to thousands of professionals at many international and regional events across North America. There will also be workshops led by our social media and search engine team, who have managed the strategy of over 100 businesses, other marketing experts and even guest speakers. Registration will open for each session 30 days prior in advance and be sure to sign up early, because there will only be 35 seats available. Throughout the year we will be covering topics ranging from social media and creating great content to building the perfect website and driving traffic from search engines. Stay tuned for our topic announcements on Facebook and check back with this page for any information regarding upcoming sessions.

Each workshop will run from 9:30am-12:00pm with coffee and snacks provided. We can’t wait to see you!
