ASBDC New Jersey to Kick Off National Small Business Week

The ASBDC New Jersey at Brookdale Community College, in collaboration with the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce and the Long Branch Office of Community and Economic Development, is providing Long Beach Island and the City of Long Branch tailored, no-cost, high-impact programs for their small businesses communities. These events will begin the week of May 4, 2015 in honor of National Small Business Week in Long Beach Island and will continue on for the week of May 11, 2015 for the City of Long Branch.

Serving the small business communities of Monmouth and Ocean counties, the ASBDC New Jersey at Brookdale Community College has been recognized as a driving force in aiding small business growth. One of the strategies in assisting with the growth of local businesses is industry specific programing. The “Adopt a Town” Countdown to Summer events are focused on training and consulting for seaside retail, restaurant and professional businesses addressing seasonality challenges and opportunities. Workshops will address strategies to capitalize on “in season” and special events traffic for business growth.

During the weeks of May 4, 2015 and May 11, 2015, America’s Small Business Development Center New Jersey at Brookdale Community College will bring one week of concentrated service to both Long Beach Island and the City of Long Branch, each beginning with a targeted workshop taught by retail and restaurant expert Marc Willson, who consults to State of Virginia, Main Street New Jersey and multiple small businesses and large corporations. Registered businesses will receive no-cost, one-on-one, confidential one hour counseling sessions in the business owner’s place of business during their respective week with Marc Willson (which can cover a variety of topics such as pricing, marketing, off season opportunities, etc.) as well as receiving continued counseling by ASBDC consultants.
