Small Business Workshops

Small Business Workshops help local small businesses address concerns and identify solutions. The Workshops provide small and mid-sized businesses (both members and non-members) across the Fox Cities Region with in-depth information from experts and empower attendees to leave with turnkey solutions and tools that can be used immediately within their business. 

Each Small Business Workshop will be comprised of several sessions in order to cover the degree of information for each selected topic. 


Upcoming Workshop Topic:
"Social Media Plunge" - March 2018 (3 sessions)
Feeling like you are in a digital daze? Are you using social media just for the sake of being on social media? Or maybe you are wondering why other businesses are thriving on social media and yours is not? What should you be doing with your social media marketing? The team at BConnected can help you! 

This hands-on, three-session workshop will be facilitated by BConnected and will provide attendees with education regarding the importance of photography, video, graphic design and writing. Strategy and utilizing a content calendar will also be discussed. Attendees will learn about industry trends, how to use Facebook and Instagram for business, how to find and interpret analytics, and hear about tips, tricks, and tactics to help stand out in the crowded world of social media and build a community of followers.  



If you own or work for a business that has a product or service to sell, you should attend. B2B, B2C, manufacturing, real estate, or not for profit. Any business of any size can benefit from this training. If you previously attended our Digital Daze Workshop, this would be a great follow-up workshop. Be sure to register today, as seats are limited!




Attendees should have some basic knowledge and experience with social media and should already have business pages on one or more social platforms. The education will be tailored to the novice to intermediate users and just about anyone who wants to amp up their social media. Guests are encouraged to bring their tablet or computer to take notes and work real-time with us. Please bring your questions as there will be ample time for Q&A.




One lucky attendee will be selected to participate in a social media deep dive. The team from BConnected will analyze two social media pages of that business and will highlight the current strengths and weaknesses of their social strategy.

Each workshop is comprised of multiple sessions. Registration is required and program fees apply. NOTE: The workshop registration is a one-time process and one-time fee for all sessions in the workshop.

"As a 'solopreneur', I have learned to wear a lot of hats. I operate a business focused on providing artistic goods and services. Until I took Don Herrmann’s workshop, Managing Your Business for Growth and Profit - The Numbers, I was lacking in confidence in my pricing. Don’s workshop breaks down the mystery of sustainable product and service pricing into a few concise and manageable steps. He helped me identify hidden and future expenses and broke down my production into minutes. I loved how the workshop had structure, yet was flexible enough to allow questions and feedback from others."
