February is a busy month at Optivation with many options to keep your skills sharp. Take advantage of all we have to offer and shape your future!
Develop skills employers appreciate and entrepreneurs can’t live without
Smart business people know that marketing success is no accident. This February Optivation is excited to offer the online course, “Successful Sales and Effective Marketing.” During this five-week class you will study, analyze, and develop an entirely new marketing plan based on the principles shared in this powerful class.
Are you really reaching your target market? In March, Optivation answers this question with a class co-sponsored by the Bemidji Chamber of Commerce. “Marketing Efficiently and Effectively” is a two-hour course taught by Dr. Dave Smith. Learn to use the right tools to make your marketing efforts truly hit home.
