Spring Quarterly Workshop
Telling Your Main Street Story, Marketing Your Main Street

February 23, 2023


February 23, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Location: The Cowan Civic Center; 500 E. Elm Street, Lebanon, MO 65536


Main Street organizations do a great job marketing events and key happenings in the district but what about the many other stories of the district and organization? Learn how, and why, to create a Strategic Marketing Plan, a plan that will align the marketing initiatives with the overall goals of your Main Street organization.

The day will include everything you need to know to tell the stories of your Main Street district, including compelling content identification and creation; tactics to implement, track, and evaluate marketing initiatives; trends in social media; and how to work with local and regional media.
