These webinars highlight different ideas from 101 Ways to Market Your Language Program. Every week you get practical, low-cost ideas to help you promote your program. Best of all, you’ll get to connect with others on line who are also interested in the same topic, ask questions and interact.
The webinars are 30 to 60 minutes in length. Bring a pen and paper. I’m going to give you lots of ideas you can implement right away.
