    SCORE Eastern CT (https://www.score.org/easternct), Mentors to America’s Small Businesses, presents a free Small Business webinar, “Starting and Running a Service Business,” with SCORE mentor Eric Munro.
    Many processes and strategies apply equally to those businesses that sell products versus those that sell services. However, for a service-based small business, the intangible product is that provided by the owner. In other words, “you” are the product, so you are selling or providing what you do (not a product that you manufacture or distribute).
    This webinar, created in response to popular demand, will focus on identifying the key activities you need to develop in order to run your service-based business profitably. Topics will include:

    • Finding and targeting your client base;
    • Building strong relationships with clients;
    • Defining the potential value of the service you offer;
    • The pricing model;
    • Providing high-quality service
    Workshop presenter Eric Munro is a product management, sales and marketing executive with experience in high-technology businesses, both domestically and internationally. Prior to retiring, Eric was Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a telecommunications equipment manufacturer based in Meriden, Connecticut. His career also includes consulting in business management for a division of DeVry University as well as teaching graduate MBA classes where he provided his expertise on project and strategic management.
