Event Description and Registration:

The Rock Hill Small Business Development Center at Winthrop University, in partnership with the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce and York Technical College, are excited to present a one-day seminar with South Carolina native and international marketing speaker and business consultant, Jay Handler.

The seminar will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13 in the Anne Close Springs Library, Room L100 at York Technical College, 452 S. Anderson Road, Rock Hill. Registration must be made in advance (see below). Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.

Jay will focus on the following timely topics during the one day seminar:

The 8 M's of Marketing - Participants will learn a top-down filter for all their marketing efforts, ensuring a more efficient use of their time and Marketing budgets. Attendees will have the tools necessary to effect change immediately!
Facebook for Business - Anyone who needs to make use of the free (or nearly free) tools available on Facebook to market their businesses or themselves will benefit. You can use more business, can’t you? Participants will start with some basics to get everyone on a level playing field, and then graduate to more advanced tips and strategies that even the expert Facebooker will appreciate!
Jay’s career in marketing started in the radio industry where he served as Senior Account Manager and Automotive Marketing Specialist with ClearChannel, CBS, and Cox Radio. Jay was then recruited to become the original General Sales Manager of ESPN radio in Orlando and later was the first person to bill $1,000,000 in a single year in the history of 107.3 JAMZ in Greenville, SC. He started his text message marketing company, SellPhone Marketing, in 2008, and applied the marketing principles he’d learned in radio to the SMS world. To market his own company, he began utilizing social media platforms, experimented in how to best benefit from what they had to offer, and then began helping other business owners make the social networks work for them. From there it was a short journey to fulfilling his passion of teaching small business-owners the principles that make marketing effective and how to make the most of today’s technology in their marketing. He works with a variety of SBDC offices and Chambers of Commerce throughout NC and SC, as well as national and international conferences on social marketing.

If you have a business to market, you do NOT want to miss this energetic and enthusiastic marketing guru!
