Avon, OH, September 13, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Newspaper ad revenue is down around the country. Advertisers are spending more time addressing increasingly internet-savvy consumers. However, some small business owners – Mom and Pop shops, independent consultants, artists, musicians and mid-sized firms – comfortable only with traditional advertising methods - are being left behind. The Completely Virtual SOHO Conference (CVSC) is a three-day business-building event that will give these entrepreneurs an accelerated education in virtual business to help bring them up to speed and connect them with the resources needed to take the virtual plunge. The conference will be held completely online from Tuesday, December 5th through Thursday, December 7th at www.GoCompletelyVirtual.com.
“The Completely Virtual SOHO Conference will demonstrate to small business owners and mid-sized firms the power of the internet in the growth and promotion of their businesses,” Beryl Powell, President of the Completely Virtual Group (www.CompletelyVirtualGroup.com) and Co-Producer of the event says of the event – her brainchild. “They will hear from small business owners that have found great success in taking their businesses virtual – in part or wholly – and an incredible range of speakers from around the world who’ll share the benefits and the mechanics of setting up a virtual business, promoting a business online and connecting with virtual entrepreneurs that can impact the growth and profitability of their businesses.”
Powell and Co-Producer, Roxanne Ravenel, President of SOHO Support Solutions LLC (www.SOHOSupportSolutions.com) are passionate about getting their message out to small business owners. “All small business owners need to understand what a powerful tool the internet can be for their businesses and how profitable it can be for them to venture into a medium that may be a little uncomfortable for them at first – regardless of what field they are in,” Ravenel asserts, “One of our speakers – a musician from Germany – expanded his business by offering saxophone lessons online. Seems impossible at first; yet he’s offering a valuable service and it has helped him to grow his business. His experience isn’t atypical. Other small business owners need to know about this.”
Mom and Pop shops, consultants, artists, musicians and mid-sized firms in a variety of industries will log on to hear three days of speakers, interviews and networking events demonstrating the necessity of establishing a virtual business presence; promoting a business online and making virtual connections with fellow entrepreneurs across the globe. Attendees can visit the booths of various virtual entrepreneurs and vendors offering products and applications essential for establishing an online presence in online exhibitor halls. CVSC giveaways include a Rebuild-a-Business Package – to help a small business owner from last year’s hurricane season re-establish their business – and the Go Completely Virtual Package to help a small business owner take their business virtual.
