Small Business Training
With support from District Bridges, AMB Marketing developed a Marketing for Small Businesses training specially designed for DC's Main Street group technical assistance programs. The training is tailored for each Main Street's business community, pulling in market data from ESRI and other market analyses and includes examples from DC businesses. Participating businesses gain a stronger understanding of marketing strategies and create a workplan with budget-friendly marketing activities focused on attracting more customers.
