Fall 2018 Small Business Classes


Local sculptor Jill Perry Townsend, using the new OCCC Digital Media & Marketing Studio. Watch for a new studio, also funded by the Lincoln County Economic Development Grant Program, at the OCCC Central County Campus in Newport. 

This fall, the SBDC presents a powerful mix of the new and the traditional. From our new workshop on a business (and personal) organizational tool to which you already have free access – Google Keep – to a new class on whether you should place that rental property into the AirBnB network, there’s plenty of new content to choose from. And, fresh updates on traditional favorites like our refreshed Social Media Marketing 2-part series and a series of classes on the latest edition of QuickBooks Pro, there’s plenty of information on offer that can directly and powerfully impact your bottom line. Register today!
