Alisa Kirk, consultant, and Kyle Hensel, area director of Clayton State University’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) were honored recently at the SBDC Georgia Network’s annual banquet in Athens, Ga. The pair received the “Continuing Education Program of the Year Award” for the program called “Marketing with Social Media.”
A full-day seminar, “Marketing with Social Media” was designed to strengthen the businessman’s knowledge of social media in order to promote business using the internet. Classes included: “Marketing Your Business with Facebook,” “Better Business Blogging with Tweeting (Twitter),” “Future of Social Media,” “Video Marketing,” and “Search Engine Marketing/Optimization.”
The SBDC of Clayton State developed the program in cooperation with the SBDC of Valdosta State University.
The Small Business Development Center is a partnership program between the U.S. Small Business Administration and colleges and universities from around the state, working together to provide consulting, training, and applied research to Georgia's entrepreneurs. The SBDC office at Clayton State University serves new and existing businesses in Clayton, Fayette, Henry and Spalding Counties.
