Work at home or in a small office of five or fewer employees?
The Chamber's SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) Group invites you to its monthly meeting
on Thursday, June 28, from 11:30 to 1 p.m.
at Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Road.
(Bring your own lunch. Beverages available.)
Our June 28 meeting topic: PR 101 for Small Businesses
Small businesses often lack the time to spend on their own public relations—or they lack the funds to hire someone to do it. If you’ve ever wondered how you can conduct your own PR initiatives in a cost-effective manner, Michelle will help you with tips and ideas on how to get your business noticed and draw more potential customers your way.
Michelle Messenger Garrett of Garrett Public Relations, a fellow SOHO member, is a public relations consultant and writer with more than 20 years of experience working with companies ranging in size from small start-ups to large corporations. As an award-winning writer, Michelle has experience writing all types of PR and marketing materials, such as press releases, customer success stories, case studies, speaking abstracts and more. She provides a full range of services to clients, from strategy and planning to implementation, all at a reasonable cost. Garrett Public Relations was recently named to the top 10 list of PR firms by Columbus Business First.
If you work in a home office or "wear all the hats" at a small office with five or fewer employees, the Chamber's new Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) subgroup is for you.
At each monthly "brown bag lunch" style meeting, members exchange best practices and business leads and learn from experts about topics that affect small business owners and home-based businesses, including legal, tax, organizational, IT and marketing/promotion issues.
Business and Associate Members of the Chamber are eligible to join SOHO. SOHO members pay a subgroup participation fee of $30 per year, in addition to their regular Chamber dues. A prospective SOHO member may attend the meeting free of charge for a one-month period and then may choose sign up for the group with the $30 annual fee.
