The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University, in partnership with the Hammond Chamber of Commerce, will host a free seminar from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Aug. 26 on mobile marketing.

Titled “Mobile Marketing for Small Business,” the event will be held at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, 1514 Martens Drive, Hammond.

“Many consumers are using mobile devices to find what they need, to assess their options, to make quick decisions and on-the-spot purchases. Small businesses and nonprofits that embrace mobile marketing now will be in the best position to take advantage of this growing trend,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Southeastern Small Business Development Center. “We can help you understand the phenomenon of mobile marketing to help your business stay ahead of the competition and how you can leverage it as a service opportunity to help clients and members access the information they are searching for.”

Kim Walker, the owner of 5 Stones Media, will be the instructor. Walker is also a regional representative for Constant Contact and travels throughout the state to educate businesses on ways to reach and keep their customer base through effective and affordable marketing technologies.

There is no cost to attend the event; however, preregistration is preferred, as seating is limited. For information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at (985) 549-3831 or Online registration is available at
