Updates & 3 Free Webinars for Your Business!

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone was interested in seeing a regular post with webinars presented by local businesses. 

Not surprising, a lot of people said yes. 

The thing that did make me scratch my head was that every person who responded was looking for a webinar. 

You read that right. I did not hear from one business owner.

Since this is a resource people are looking for I'm going to leave it on the table.  Now that the NH Business Directory is expanding services I don't have the time to chase down leads, but if I come across a webinar or if someone wants to send me information about a webinar they are hosting I will gladly share it.

Hippo Press Best of 2018 - Reader's picks for the best businesses in southern New Hampshire

Good news for all you business geeks and groupies, the Hippo Press readers have spoken and the results for the Best of 2018 are in. 

The list of this year's winners is far too long for the two inches of space I have here, but I will give a shout out to my buddies at Pro Image Automotive for being named the Best of the Best in the Auto Repair category. 

Way to go Mike, Christine, Scott, and all the guys in the back!!!

Awards like this are a big deal for local business owners because it shows that not only did they do a good job, but they made a connection with their customers.  And as we all know, once you have that connection you will have a repeat customer who is happy to recommend you and your business to their friends and family.

What are your thoughts about me doing a monthly post of upcoming live webinars from local businesses? 

My normal practice is to limit the Roundups to in-person events and give a shout out if someone asks me to share a webinar, but with the weekly nor'easter messing with the events calendars the last couple months, it seems like a good time to revisit the idea of maintaining a webinar calendar. 

To my knowledge, there is no central repository of webinars from local businesses.  This means that I would have to rely on people to tell me if they were going to host a webinar and they would have to do it up to a month in advance. 

So what do you think?
