Series

Brought to you by Tulsa Tech, 36 Degrees North and Prodigy & Co.

If you are a small business, a nonprofit, or simply a life-learner, these workshops are for you!

Presenter: Beth Macias – SunBranch Marketing

Hybrid event with limited in-person seating at 36 Degrees North along with virtual access via Zoom.

Business Basics: Branding & Marketing Foundations

You don’t have a business unless you have customers and customers won’t buy from you unless they know who you are and what you do. This workshop will help you understand the elements of a basic brand and what you need to get started (hint: it isn’t a fancy, expensive logo and website) and will walk you through the process of determining who your ideal customer is, where to find them, and how to get their attention. 

 

Led by Beth Macias, brand and website designer, all around business creative, and founder of Sun Branch Marketing.

Do you need a team, should you outsource, and what about partners? How do you pick and choose what systems will be best for your business? Learn about all these things and get your day to day operations up and running.
