Improve your business skills at Community Futures

Getting publicity for your business is one of the most powerful and cost effective promotional tactics you can learn. The rules are simple: conventions must be followed, but the pay-off is worth the effort. In Publicity: the New Media Advantage, learn the basics of publicity, what it is, why you should use it, and how to get it.

Life is too busy to read long product descriptions or dig deep into services. The modern customer wants to see the product in action and video content does it all. In DIY Videos for YouTube learn how to plan, shoot, and edit video for business.
