Free Workshop: Turn Your Biz into a Destination Now!
Business owners in Leadville and Lake County have the opportunity to hear nationally-known Destination Business Expert Jon Schallert when he presents his acclaimed business improvement session, “The New Rules of Business Success: Capturing Today’s Consumers as a Destination Business.”
The program will be next Tuesday, Oct 20, from 9 a.m. to noon at Colorado Mountain College. A short session with business owners will follow to discuss perspectives of and opportunities along Harrison Avenue.
“In today’s economy, the challenge for any business, regardless of its location and surrounding demographics, is to create such a compelling offering that it is repeatedly visited by consumers. For a business to be a true Destination, it must also draw customers both locally and from out-of-town,” says Schallert. Schallert’s workshops teach independent business owners how to turn their businesses into consumer “Destinations” that attract customers from many miles away, past other competitive outlets. Schallert’s workshop also shows businesses how to get local consumers to spend more money locally, and how to stop “retail leakage”.
