The Business Development Center at the University of Washington, Bothell, the city of Bothell and the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to offer a small business marketing workshop.

The event is slated for 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Country Village Courtyard Hall in Bothell.

Organizers say the workshop will focus on developing strategies and tactics that can be used to quickly and positively impact retail sales or service businesses. The session will introduce techniques in four areas of marketing: consumer behavior, pricing, customer targeting and positioning.

To help ensure the content is most applicable to each participating business, those involved will be given a pre-workshop assignment. A follow-up session with the facilitator will be available to each workshop business.

The program is being presented by Harry Thomas, founder of Marketing Hat and a marketing consultant.

To register for the workshop, go to or call (425) 485-4353. With funding provided by the city of Bothell, the workshop is free to the first 35 businesses registered, with one participant requested per business.
