The Kansas Small Business Development Center at Pittsburg State is set to host seminars that cover both Social Media for your Business and Marketing Your Business Online on Wednesday August, 7 starting at 8:30 am. It’s likely that the importance and impact of social media are only going to grow in the years to come.

Social media presence is one aspect of growing your business online. Another important feature is marketing your business online such as securing a good web domain, having updated information that is easy to find for customers. The Online Marketing class will take place on Wednesday August, 8 at 10:30 am. Mindy Lee does have a piece of advice for business owners looking for an edge in getting their business to the top of search results quickly.
Regardless of what business that you’re in, the bottom-line of how much income it generates is likely high on the priority list for a business owner. But understanding the three main financial statements and even creating them maybe a difficult concept for new business owners or those looking to grow their business. Assistant Director of the Kansas SBDC at Pittsburg State Dacia Clark will lead a seminar on Wednesday August 7 starting at 1:30 pm that will speak to the need of understanding profit and loss statements, your companies balance sheet and cash-flow. Below Dacia tells us in a nut shell what her Understanding Financial Statement class will cover.
