SBC's 'Message Mapping' seminar is March 29

By Haywood Community College | Mar 14, 2017

The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will offer a free seminar called, “Message Mapping,” Wednesday, March 29, 6-9:00 p.m. in HCC Regional High Technology Center room 3021.

What is Message Mapping? If you can't tell me what you do in 15 seconds, then I'm not buying, I'm not investing and I'm not interested. Sound familiar? Creating a message map for your company will ensure you can pitch your product (or business, or idea, or . . .) in a simple and compelling way. A message map is a visual display of your idea on one page. It is a powerful tool that every company should have when communicating with audiences:  whether customers, media or employees. All companies need a message suite to consistently share the same information to anyone listening. What about your company? When was the last time you actively worked on your message to ensure your 'sound bites' are clear, concise and consistent? In this workshop, you will learn the three steps to creating a message map that will give you a road map for your conversations, enhance your brand and boost your sales.
