Feedback for Internet Marketing Workshop

I posted about attending an Internet Marketing Workshop conducted by Joanne Steele of Rural Tourism Marketing Group on Monday. Sort of like there is no greater praise for a cook than a cleaned plate, I was informed and inspired by Joanne to the point that I am working today on improving this blog using WordPress completely on my website. So, it may take a few days for me to get this blog like I want it, but that knowledge is empowering my upgrade.
From the feedback I’ve received, I am not the only one who learned something that will help his organization improve its marketing effort. It is difficult to quantify, but I am certain we will get a nice return on investment. I hope that Buffalo/Duck River RC&D Council and the other economic development organizations in this four-county region can continue to make investments such as this in their businesses and community based organizations.
