Helping You Plan Your Downtown Business
Through participation in the Main Street Arkansas program we have access to professional small business consultant services to help all our Downtown businesses and prospective businesses, at no charge.
Small Business Consulting
Main Street Arkansas's small business consultant offers confidential, on-site advice to independent Downtown merchants within the Main Street network. Small business assistance includes working directly with merchants on issues from customer service to inventory control techniques. We teach the best small business practices that keep businesses competitive in the marketplace, especially during hard economic times.
Main Street Arkansas's small business consultant develops and presents trainings, public lectures and workshops. These help to educate community leaders, Downtown interest groups and merchants in retailing strategies, economic development strategies and best small business practices. Topics include seminars on how businesses can compete with big box retailers and stay vital to the local economy. The seminars are customized to suit the needs in each community, which may range from the need for merchants to capitalize on their Downtowns' business clusters, or devising a business recruitment plan for a specific market.
We offer joint workshops with the Main Street interior design consultant that teaches the long-term benefits of window displays, storefronts, and signage to branding your business. The increasingly popular workshops are customized to suit the special business and design needs in each community and take into consideration changes in consumer habits.
Main Street Arkansas's Small Business Consultant works with local executive directors, their boards and committees to offer guidance and direction for the local business district's growth.Contact Us To Setup Small Business Consultant Services
