Whether you have a long-established business or are just beginning to plan a new business, The Seattle Public Library has great resources for you to use for free through our Library to Business program. We offer dozens of classes and workshops every year in partnership with local organizations.

Does your business have an online presence? How do you know if your website is effective? Digital strategist and small business consultant Michael J. Coffey will teach four online workshops in September and October: how to use Google Analytics to measure your website traffic, reaching your customers with a blog, making a strategic marketing plan, and turning your website traffic into extra revenue.

Library events are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required, sign up via the Library's calendar.
