At this year’s Rural Business and Innovation Summit, Jen McFarland, CEO of Women Conquer Business, will deliver practical digital marketing tips for rural businesses. She will cover email, social media, email marketing, website, and funnels.  The Rural Business and Innovation Summit will be held September 12th at Klamath Community College in Klamath Falls and is the premiere conference for rural business owners, entrepreneurs, and community leaders.

“Rural businesses have limited time, money, and resources and it can be confusing to determine the best use of marketing time and money,” says Heather Tramp, the Chamber’s Executive Director, “Ms. McFarland will help our guests understand the practical and essential steps to building a robust marketing foundation.” Jen McFarland is the CEO of Women Conquer Business consulting and podcast. She ditched her comfy C-suite tech project management job in pursuit of freedom. Her goal is to help business leaders vet ideas, take ownership of their projects, and incorporate digital marketing from day one.

In addition to this session, the Rural Business and Innovation Summit will feature a wide variety of topics including entrepreneurship, workforce, and more. The Summit is hosted annually by the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce.  Registration is available online at www.ruralbizsummit.com or by calling 541-884-5193.
