America’s SBDC Iowa is excited to announce dates and communities for their #IASBDCMobile initiative. A team of experts in marketing, accounting and operations will be traveling to different communities around Iowa and offering free resources regarding e-commerce, QuickBooks, shipping and business operations.
Onawa is one of several chosen communities for this new initiative. The mobile event will be visiting Onawa on November 19 at Carrier Coffee & Tea Company (611 10th St, Onawa).
The day will start with a chance for business owners to speak with small business experts in person anytime between 2PM to 4PM and have their questions answered (come and go as you please). America’s SBDC Iowa is also excited to help promote and educate businesses on the e-commerce platform; Shop Iowa. They will be offering appointments that afternoon to walk businesses through setting up their online shop on ShopIowa.com, stage products and answer general questions. We recommend pre-registering for Shop Iowa before your scheduled appointment to make the most of your time. You can register on ShopIowa.com/sell. If interested in setting up an appointment please reach Marketing Manager, Brianna Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We are extremely excited to get out there in these communities and talk with businesses directly about ways we can help them. We are also ready to keep promoting the online platform, Shop Iowa, and get businesses registered on the site so that they can start generating more revenue immediately,” says State Director, Lisa Shimkat.
