THE CREATIVE COALITION OF MIDTOWN NEWS RELEASE – The Creative Coalition of Midtown will be offering quarterly classes to its members, with the goal of empowering their businesses. The first class, Social Media for Small Business, will be held on August 1. Attendance is limited to existing members of the Creative Coalition of Midtown, but may be open to the public for future events.

The class will be taught be Jaclyn Coleman of the Biggest Little Group. “These days a lot of businesses think that just because social media is free, and everyone has it, that it’s easy to use and they can handle it themselves,” said Coleman. “But, in all reality, to make a business grow online there is a technique and strategy that is effective. Social media is very powerful tool and if used correctly it helps your business to mature.”

With so many small businesses opening in the Midtown area, the CCM is hoping by supporting one another, every business will be able to flourish. Instead of looking at each other as competition, the businesses in Midtown are uniting together. The foundation of the CCM is to provide education to its members that allow small business owners to get the basics on topics that they can do for themselves when they are unable to afford professional help.

“The classes the CCM are offering are beneficial to its members because it’s good for everyone to be on the same page and learn together as a community,” said Coleman. “Then they can advance their businesses together.”

For more information about the CCM, please contact Amber Solorzano at 775-772-4080.

The Creative Coalition of Midtown is a community of business owners and artists banding together for one mission: to help one another continue to build the arts movement and support small businesses in Reno. Founded in 2013, the Creative Coalition Midtown aims to foster ongoing support and nurture these partnerships as well as provide education, quarterly events, and marketing materials for its members and the community.
