Known as Main Street U, Patch launched this workshop in January and has taught more than 530 business owners in California and Washington.
The workshop, which is sponsored by Hotel Shattuck Plaza, is an introduction to social media, business directories, blogging and telling your story on Patch. Participants will enjoy light refreshments and will be eligible for door prizes and giveaways. Space is limited, so RSVP by filling out the form with this article.
Reviews of previous Patch Main Street U events have been stellar:
"What a GREAT Presentation to the PATCH Community of 50+ Small Businesses and Professional Service Providers, packing the three workshops... Articulate, impactful, relevant."
"Your people really knew their stuff. I went to a similar workshop sponsored by Google and although very slick, it was mostly to sell Google. Your workshop was accessible and actually useful."
(Watch the accompanying video to hear more about MSU from business owners and Patch staff.)
After you register, we'll make sure your business has a Patch Directory listing on your hometown Patch site, a free service that business owners can use. And if you claim your listing, there's even more you can do. (Here's some more information about claiming listings.)
Participating business owners will also have a chance to sign up for a free one-on-one marketing consultation with a Patch expert.
If you are interested in sponsoring this event or future MSUs, please contact Regional Publisher Brian Snider, BrianS@Patch.com.
