WALTHAM, Mass., April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As an official sponsor of National Small Business Week, Constant Contact, an Endurance International Group company, is commencing a series of free educational events throughout the country to recognize the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners and help them enhance their online marketing efforts.
In celebration of National Small Business Week, Constant Contact will host live, in-person events in local communities nationwide led by its team of marketing experts and thought leaders from each region. The events will explore the benefits of online marketing to engage customers and drive business success, and provide entrepreneurs and small business owners with the knowledge and technical know-how to implement these strategies within their own business.
"Small business owners have a distinct drive that inspires them to get out of bed each morning, put in the long hours, roll up their sleeves and get the job done," said Jonathan Kateman, General Manager, Constant Contact. "We work with these folks year-round and are honored to partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration on this effort to not only to recognize the important role their businesses play in local communities, but help them continue to advance their businesses."
In addition to these free local events, beginning April 30, Constant Contact is inviting small business owners to share on social media using the hashtag #MySmallBizWhy, sharing why they started their small business. The campaign will run through June and culminate with an interactive digital art display, created by user generated content from small businesses and consumers who support shopping small. Simultaneously, Constant Contact brand ambassadors will hit the streets in major cities across the country to interact with small businesses and the local community, encouraging them to share their #MySmallBizWhy.
Constant Contact will host the following events beginning with National Small Business Week and continuing throughout the month of May:
Free One-On-One Coaching Sessions
Constant Contact will offer free in-person 1:1 coaching sessions for small businesses throughout the month of May, as part of educational seminars in several regions of the U.S. The coaching sessions will be offered by local marketing experts who will provide guidance on email marketing strategies and best practices.

Webinar: Email Content in 15 Minutes or Less
