  • One live webcast including Q&A each week with experts in marketing, employee engagement, sales, technology and more. You’ll be able to easily access each webcast through the membership site and in The Local Shop Private Facebook Group. Each webcast will be viewable on desktop or mobile. You can watch them live or check them out later – whatever works for your schedule.  You’ll be able to ask questions before or during the webcast and have your questions answered even if you’re not able to make the live event.
  • Two one-sheets each week each with actionable content to grow your business. One sheets will be archived in the membership site for reading when the time works for you. Members will be notified in The Local Shop Private Facebook Group each time a one sheet is added.  Each will be brief and concise to accommodate the busiest of members.
