Marketing class begins July 10
The Hawaii Youth Business Center (HYBC) in Pahoa will present “Marketing Your Product — Local to Global,” a four-session workshop starting July 10 on a “time-tested, proven, yet cutting-edge and radically different, marketing system for local businesses/products to attract global customers.”
The workshop will run for four consecutive Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at HYBC, now located in Pahoa’s Woodland Center off Highway 130.
Gerardo Delgado, a local marketing expert who has helped both small business owners and industry leaders implement successful marketing strategies that are both practical and results-oriented, will conduct the workshop. Cost is $80, or $72 if paid in advance, which includes course material, a companion book, “Marketing with Aloha – What Every Business Owner Should Know About Advertising,” by Delgado.
