Business classes and resources for success are free at the library

Posted on September 8, 2017 at 6:00 am

When local businesses thrive, our whole community thrives.

Spokane County Library District is committed to helping local business owners and entrepreneurs find their success. We offer free workshops and classes from local business specialists who have comprehensive business knowledge and skills. Every day, with our business library card, businesses have access to our digital resources, office amenities, and one-on-one help from our business librarians.

This fall, we’re offering classes on digital marketing, business planning, and customer-centric impressions.

Local small businesses may also get a boost during the holiday shopping season! The Library District is a Neighborhood Champion for Small Business Saturday, again in 2017. Your business may qualify to participate, building more customer relationships in the process.

DIGITAL MARKETING WITH DR. TIM OLSEN

Marketing your business doesn’t need to be a mystery! Dr. Tim Olsen, Assistant Professor of Information Systems in the School of Business at Gonzaga University, leads this class about the appropriate design of blogs, websites, and landing pages, which social media tools are the most useful, and how Google AdWords and Google Analytics can boost your business.
