Marketing is changing at lighting speed due to rapid changes in platforms on the internet and social media. Business entrepreneurs can learn how to stay ahead of the changes by participating in a FREE workshop offered by the San Juan County Economic Development Council (EDC), in partnership with the San Juan Islands Visitors’ Bureau, on November 6th, 2018, from 10-11a at Heritage Bank in Friday Harbor.


Workshop attendees will learn both old-fashioned and new-fangled key elements of marketing a small business, from research and branding, to e-newsletters and print brochures, to social media and websites, to media relations and community relations. Instructors Deborah Hopkins Buchanan and Barbara Marrett will answer questions such as “What is SEO?“, “What is content marketing?” and “What is an influencer?” along the way.

Instructor Deborah Hopkins Buchanan launched the San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau in 2003, based on marketing experience she gained at Travel Portland, Washington County Visitors Association in Oregon, the Oregon Medical Association, and the American Red Cross; instructor Barbara Marrett has worked as a writer and in editorial and marketing in the San Juan Islands for over three decades and is a Port of Friday Harbor Commissioner.
