Startup Junkie Workshop to Help Business Owners Create a Marketing Plan

Startup Junkie has teamed up with nu marketing and Story Marketing to host a marketing plan workshop on March 19th.


You know you have always needed to create an annual, monthly marketing plan, but chances are you just haven’t gotten around to it. Startup Junkie will host a hands-on marketing plan workshop presented by two Northwest Arkansas marketing professionals – Lindsay Young, Chief Difference Maker of Nu Marketing, and Debbie McElroy, Owner of Story Marketing.

They will present their experiences and offer guidance about marketing needs for small business owners, service professionals, and business persons. Ideas will be relevant and easy to implement for the NWA consumer and client market. Low-cost marketing ideas will be shared with attendees in order to maximize any marketing budget.

Attendees will participate in hands-on opportunities with their like-industry small groups and walk away with a basic marketing plan draft specific to their business needs to get them started in this valuable business practice of creating an annual, efficient marketing plan. Lunch will be provided for all REGISTERED attendees by event co-sponsor First National Bank of NWA. This event will take place on the first floor of the Pryor Center building and breakout sessions will take place on the second floor atrium.
