Craig briefs: Seminar designed to aid businesses


Seminar designed to aid businesses

— The public is invited to attend a free seminar next week about how to grow small businesses and thrive in the future.

Top of Mind Awareness is a survey that measures the public's knowledge of a company. The seminar will focus on how local businesses can compete with national chain stores by increasing TOMA. The survey will show how quickly people think of a company when a service is needed.

The seminar is free and will begin at 7:30 a.m. March 26 with sign-ups. The presentation is from 8 to 10 a.m. It will be hosted at the Holiday Inn of Craig.

The seminar will be presented by nationally-known speaker Mark Rood and is sponsored by the Craig Daily Press.

Breakfast is provided and RSVP is required. For more information, call 824-7031 or e-mail Renee Campbell at
