The Chilton County Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a seminar intended to give local business owners a boost in today’s slow economy.

The chamber has booked best-selling author, speaker and marketing expert Tony Rubleski to speak Tuesday, April 27 at the Jefferson State Community College Clanton Campus from 2-4 p.m.

While the seminar focuses on business owners, it is open to the general public.

“We’re sponsoring this because we want to help people grow their business in a challenging economy,” said Mike Robertson, who oversees business development for the chamber.

In the seminar, called “Capturing the Mind of Your Customers,” Rubleski will illustrate several different strategies, such as:

How to generate more referrals and repeat business

Secrets to capturing the attention of the 21st century customer

Proven ways to grow your business even during a slow economy

The concept of “mind capture” and how top marketers use it to get the edge

The power of content and ways to improve your online marketing

Robertson said Rubleski’s strategies have been utilized by chambers across the country.

“We think this is going to be helpful to our members and others too. We’re inviting the community at large,” he said.

Admission is $30 per person. Reservations are required, and the registration deadline is Friday, April 23.
