Local businesses, organizations, and municipalities need help reaching a broader audience. “Many
visitors to the region use social media and it only makes sense that we help them reach that audience
more effectively,” says Meg Staloff of Wilmington Works. “The collaboration between BDCC’s INSTIG8,
The Southern Vermont Economy Project, and Wilmington Works leverages some great talent in the
region which will help our local businesses, organizations, and municipalities learn needed new skills,”
says Sarah Lang, BDCC, Southern Vermont Economy Project.
This series of workshops will help businesses, organizations, and municipalities in Bennington and
Windham regions who are interested in learning some basic digital marketing tools, understand the
digital marketing solution landscape, as well as gain some hands-on experience. Four 2-hour long
classes, held once a week by Brandon Stephens of AIO Marketing, covering the topics of Facebook,
Instagram, and Email Marketing. The workshops will be held at Pettee Library in Wilmington, VT
Wednesday 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, and 11/8.
