Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
Successful marketers, Susan Cain and Patrick Corcoran of Cain Communications have joined with webinar technology specialist, Anita Reyes of Learn Online Academy, to offer an online marketing class for small business owners. Throughout the course, “Survival to success: Effective, low-cost marketing for your small business”, Susan, Patrick and Anita will provide hands-on, step-by-step in-class experience allowing people to develop their personal marketing and marketing-communications (marcom) approach.
Starting on Friday, September 14, and continuing for four successive weeks, students will participate in a live, interactive, online learning experience. For those who have never participated in a live classroom, instructors will lead students through the simple set-up process in advance of the initial class session.
With a combined three quarters of a century of experience providing marketing, advertising, public relations, online resources and marcom support for large and small companies, Susan, Patrick and Anita will discuss successes they’ve discovered throughout their journeys. Students will develop a clear understanding of how to position their company and/or product in a crowded marketplace while learning how to identify, satisfy and keep customers through affordable marketing communication programs.
Believing that people have busy lives and need to remain focused on the success of their businesses, the course was intentionally kept short. Yet students will come away with practical tools enabling them to secure customers and continue improving upon and extending their marketing skills long after the class has ended.
If you would like to sign up for this four-week class starting on September 14, go to http://www.omnicareworld.com/89423/102823.html. The cost for the class is $295.
