FutureHeights Small Business Workshop Series kicks off with “Social Media & Retail”

In association with the Ohio Small Business Development Center and with the support of US Bank, FutureHeights will host a series of six free workshops in 2018 for small business owners to increase their knowledge of current trends and give them new skills to thrive in today’s environment.

The first of these workshops, Social Media & Retail, will be held on Friday, Feb. 16, from 9:30–11:30 a.m. at the Small Business Development Center, located at 2340 Lee Rd, in Cleveland Heights.

Speaker Chris Smith is a social entrepreneur, small business development consultant and graphic designer. His entrepreneurial experiences began in college competing in several business plan competitions across the nation. He currently works for JumpStart, Inc., supporting several programs working with technology and on-technology companies throughout Northeast Ohio. Smith’s talk will focus on using social media to assess community needs, market to a wider audience, and create lasting relationships with customers and neighbors.

Whether or not you are well versed in the use of technology, this workshop will add critical information and provide new perspectives on social media’s use in the retail market. All are welcome, from well-established vendors to students and start-ups.
