Small Business Milwaukee started out on January 31, 2014, as just a fan page to help promote small businesses within Metropolitan Milwaukee. The idea was to provide a free place for small business owners to promote their enterprises to potential clients, including other local companies. It was a way for small business owners to support one another.
Within 30 days, the fan page gained a little over 1,000 fans. It was obvious that local social media networking was a real need and, as such, was warmly welcomed within the community. Since then, Small Business Milwaukee has grown substantially and includes a wide variety of free and paid digital marketing options. Two other entrepreneurs have recently joined Small Business Milwaukee. That means the group has more talent than ever to offer local businesses.
Here are the people behind the scenes at Small Business Milwaukee:
Building a network of small business owners and helping everyone in that network succeed is my specialty.
The more clients I serve and the more people I meet, the better we all become. That’s because my experience and expertise encourage small business owners to (1) develop an effective online presence; and (2) expand their reach to potential customers. In turn, my clients and business associates challenge me to learn something new every day. That’s an important skill to have in our ever-changing world.
Designing websites using Divi for WordPess, creating and maintaining social media campaigns, teaching digital marketing and hosting related meetups comprise my hub. You’re invited to discover more—and decide how I can best help you—by also visiting TracyChampagne.com.
Since I’m very engaged with my clients, my free time is limited. When I do choose to take it, it’s spent with family, enjoying the Northwoods, cooking and trying to stay fit. Born in Wisconsin, I’m still not a fan of winter or cheese, but really like the people.
