Business owners who want to get a handle on marketing in today’s digital age can attend “Taming Technologies,” a free monthly seminar series at the Larose Civic Center presented by Ignite.
“We’re proud to bring the community something that can help them to understand how best to make money in today’s market,” said Jasmine Ayo, executive director of the Bayou Civic Club.
The series features hands-on “Lunch and Learn” classes designed to help local business owners learn how to use digital technologies to more effectively market their businesses.
