Southlake Chamber of Commerce Hosts Community Marketing Class

Southlake can be a tough nut to crack…especially on a limited marketing budget!

For August, Mark Guilbert will speak to about increasing sales and customers through creative (and inexpensive) ways to build your brand, help the community and create a win for everyone!

Mark took his Southlake restaurant location from #600 in the chain to the top 50 in sales volume, won the highest national sales award 3 out of 4 straight years, took a small business to mid-sized status and created jobs for over 80 people! He will show us how he used destination and captive audience marketing, community organizations and involvement and created brand recognition throughout the city…..and how YOU can do this for YOUR BUSINESS!

The LAB session will include group brainstorming, marketing plans and discussion about your business and your marketing objectives. Sometimes, we ALL need a creative environment, with creative minds, to help us make it to our next level of excellence!

Learn the tips, tricks and secrets of Community Marketing in Southlake in our normal Charter Breakfast Series….and then come back the following week to apply those skills to YOUR business!

At the end of the lecture, you will be given a “homework” assignment to bring with you to the lab. This will be the information that you will need to know about your company to discuss with the other business people. There will also be time at the end of the session for general Q&A”s.
