Let us show you how you can get
your business moving again.

Is your store closed or do you have less visitors because of mandated social distancing? Just because your brick and mortar store is closed, you don't have to let your inventory sit. Or maybe you're a restaurant & have branded merchandise you can move. Let's open up your website store and help move inventory or at least promote gift card sales.

Small businesses in the 11-county Motlow State service area are now eligible to receive this training for a discounted price using matching funds through the MotlowTrained Relief Fund! Contact us today to learn more.

A few quick action options to
push your business forward:

Online Sales

e-Commerce Accelerator Program: Do you have an existing website but not a way for customers to buy? We will help you add a Buy Button and set up your first 5 items that you are ready to sell, add more items, and make edits to your sites moving forward.

Online Presence Accelerator Program: Don’t have a website but need one quick? We will set up a 1-page site together with 5 items you are ready to sell, including training so you can self-manage going forward!

Digital Media

Digital Media Marketing Accelerator Program: Now is not the time to leave your customers in the dark, so get even more connected with them. Share how you are adjusting your business to serve them safely and how they can support you. Most people want to know how to help so share how they can! We can work together on how to do that, whether a feel-good campaign or a “business as usual” approach during this time. 


Do you have a message or item that can help during this time and more people need to know about it? Reach more people with social media advertising. We can help you design a branded graphic, place an ad, and target your market at no cost to you (excludes the cost of ad placement).
