Town Offers Free Seminar Exploring

 Marketing on a Shoestring Budget



Port Washington, NYTough economic times call for Darwinian business instincts. Only the fit—those able to market their products and services with little capital—are likely to survive.


With that said North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman announced today that the Town’s Business & Tourism Development Corp. is sponsoring a seminar aimed at helping small business owners beef up their market share on a shoestring budget.


The free seminar, “Marketing on a Shoestring Budget”, is scheduled to convene from 8:00a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Thursday, April 30 at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington.


A free breakfast will be served as attendees feed on advice from a panel of experts including Lucille Wesnofske, director of New York State Small Business Development Center at Farmingdale State University, Richard Strautman, principal of Picus Enterprises, LLC of Port Washington, Adrian Miller, principal of Port Washington-based Adrian Miller Sales Training and Louise Fishman, executive director of North Hempstead’s Business & Tourism Development Corp.


The topics include:

  • Identifying your target market, positioning in the marketplace and analyzing your competition
  • Why you need to build a website, different ways to design and build a site and attracting potential customers to the site
  • Turning prospects into customers and mining the gold in your current customer base
  • And the benefits of giveaways and specialty advertising


To register, call 516-869-7759 OR register online at www.northhempsteadny.gov.  For further information call Louise Fishman at 516-869-7759.


The seminar, the first of a three-part 2009 Business Development Series, is co-sponsored by Albrecht, Viggiano, Zureck & Co., P.C.; LIPA/National Grid, Forchelli, Curto, Crowe, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Cohn LLP; Sovereign Bank and Long Island Development Corp.
