posted in Chamber of Commerce on July 1, 2019

Folsom, CA: Main Street Iowa (part of Iowa Economic Development Authority) is working with Locable to conduct their 90-minute Marketing 3-4-5™ workshops in 5 Iowa communities. The goal: empower local businesses, nonprofits and civic organizations in the communities they support to become more effective marketers and better compete in today’s digital landscape.

“Communication remains one of the most important ingredients of success for local revitalization efforts. With so many ways to tell our story, it can be an overwhelming experience to find time to effectively market local successes, activities, and businesses. Through our partnership with Locable, we hope to provide on-the-ground training and support for local Main Street communication and marketing strategies.” - Michael Wagler, Main Street Iowa State Coordinator

“This is an exciting opportunity for our local businesses to participate in a free workshop focused on learning about tools to utilize and be able to better market themselves.” - Travis Toliver, Executive Director

Locable will be in Waverly on Friday, July 19th at the Waverly Civic Center.

The morning workshop will begin at 9:30 AM and include guiding attendees through a marketing exercise to create a marketing and content plan based on the Marketing 3-4-5 framework™ and related workbook. The visit will also include a series of one-on-one marketing office hours during the afternoon by appointment. You can call the Waverly Chamber of Commerce at (319) 352-4526 or email waverly@waverlychamber.com to sign up for the workshop.

“Local businesses notoriously struggle with marketing, and it’s getting worse. With our Marketing 3-4-5 workshop, we make business owners better marketers in the first 5-minutes then share a few secrets and help them craft a plan-of-action that they feel is right for them.” - Brian Ostrovsky, CEO Locable
