Thinking well beyond Black Friday, the leading social media and digital marketing training institute for entrepreneurs aims to set Calgary companies up for success in 2017 and beyond

While Black Friday is feeling more bleak than black for many businesses this year, we wanted to do something a little different.

As western Canada’s premier social media and digital marketing training grounds for start-ups and small businesses, we’re deepening our commitment to entrepreneurs through a series of game-changing scholarship programs launching this week, beginning with the gifting of 5 free website builds to deserving local companies.

Winning applicants will be granted a complimentary spot in our Dec. 13-14 Website Launch Lab held at The Commons Calgary, where they will not only launch a beautiful new site to promote their business and sell their wares in two days flat, but learn how to build, update and maintain it themselves, market it on social media and more.

Because as the saying goes, teach a person to fish – or in this case, properly market their business in the modern world – and they’ll never have to stumble, outsource or close up shop again.

And as proud Social School partners and committed supporters of Calgary’s entrepreneurial community, The Commons will also be extending one month of complimentary desk space to one of the five winning companies. As a boutique cowork, meeting and event space where some of Calgary’s most talented up-and-coming entrepreneurs, businesses, freelancers and innovators work, meet, connect and collaborate, there is simply no better place for you (and your shiny new website) to be to kick off a spectacular 2017.

Applications for The Social School’s Win Your Website Contest are open now through midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Winners will be drawn and announced on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

So go ahead and dust off that domain, shelve the excuses and get your name in quick. Good luck!!
