Strengthen your marketing efforts

Meet with marketing advisors

Connect with vetted, highly experienced marketing advisors who can support you as you work to spread the word about your services or products. Marketing specialists will guide you as you focus on: 

  • Brand development and brand strategy
  • Creating social media plans
  • Learning about advertising options, from print to digital media, and more.

Elevate Hennepin advisors offer strategic guidance for your business to get to the next step. While they may support some implementation activities, business owners are responsible for ongoing maintenance and day-to-day operations. Businesses should be prepared to engage their own resources for complex projects that are anticipated to take more than 25 hours.

Contact an advisor below to help you identify and plan for your next critical step.
