    It’s difficult to overstate the importance of mobile in today’s digital marketing landscape. The fact is, if you aren’t focusing on how to appeal to audiences on mobile, you’re already falling behind the competition.

    That said, diving headfirst into mobile marketing can seem intimidating. Do you have the technological capabilities? Will it cost a fortune? These are common concerns, but mobile marketing doesn’t necessarily mean launching a costly mobile app (in fact in 99% of cases it doesn’t). Mobile marketing isn’t about flashy apps that no one uses or trendy technology that will fall out of fashion in a matter of months - it’s about doing everything you can to be present on mobile when your users are, and meeting their needs whenever they encounter your brand in a mobile setting.

    Join the discussion at the July SBO meeting and learn about mobile marketing strategies.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.

    Non-members are welcome to attend one time!

    People always want to know what makes a good leader. It’s normally because they’re trying to become a leader, or they’re trying to find a leader to work for their company.

    Some people are naturally good leaders. Other people have the potential to be leaders if they’re willing to develop their leadership skills. But, you need to recognize that leadership is more than standing at the front of a room, having an office or getting people to do things for you.

    Leading isn’t as easy as it looks. Leaders take on more work, more stress and more demands than meet the eye. But, if you have the characteristics of a leader, you are equipped to be successful.

    Join the discussion at the August SBO meeting and learn leadership charaacteristics.

    Pay for own meal and drinks.
