PIKEVILLE, KY – (November 17, 2015) As part of Small Business Appreciation Month, the Chamber partnered with the Kentucky Innovation Network in Pikeville to host two free small business workshops: “Protecting Your Business Data with Cloud Computing” and “Take Your Products Online without Breaking the Bank.”

The workshop “Protecting Your Business Data with Cloud Computing” featured several ways to protect valuable business data with inexpensive online backup solutions through various software programs such as Dropbox and other cloud based data storage systems.

“Take Your Products Online without Breaking the Bank” workshop discussed how small businesses with limited budgets can have a safe, professional, and affordable online presence. Organizations can create a website and storefront through a variety of cost-effective services such as Squarespace, Weebly, GoDaddy, and others.

The audience included small business owners and managers. They were able to get important questions answered and received tips on how to make their business more successful. The Chamber strives to help connect small business owners and entrepreneurs to free resources that can help grow their business.

Small Business Appreciation Month is presented by Community Trust Bank and will continue through the month of November.
