Join us and learn what is involved in having a good internet presence.  It involves more than a website or Facebook page.  The featured businesses are Lucy Rae's (Hastie Kinter and McKenzie Martini) and Trav.media (Travis Lodolinski).

More than ever, the coronavirus crisis has revealed the value to businesses of maximizing online presence, marketing, and engagement of customers. The coronavirus has also further accelerated already existing social trends, including online purchasing, expanding convenience to and engagement of customers, having flexible business models, and efficient operations.

There is no fee to participate, but registration is required.  For more information, contact Tony Palamone, IUP SBDC director, at 724-357-5929 or email iup-sbdc@iup.edu.
