 PHILIPSBURG--Produce Wealth Revolution Agency (PWR Agency) will host three “intensive” master classes to help entrepreneurs and small businesses prepare for opportunities in 2019. The classes will be held at PWR Agency’s office at 137 Union Road in Cole Bay (above Animal Hospital) on December 3, 4 and 6, from 6:30pm (doors will open at 6:00pm).

  The master classes are designed to give practical knowledge from experts with more than 10 years of experience in under three hours, coordinators said Sunday.

  The master classes will focus on doing business online; creating a PWR team and new ways to advertise on Facebook. The “do business online” master class will be held on December 3 and will focus on how to overcome the challenges of doing business online and some of the key ways to monetize gifts and talents online. It will also share what works from the three years of study conducted by Ife Badejo. There will be live examples to give best practices and show common pitfalls to avoid in “the trillion-dollar digital economy.”

  Create a PWR Team, is a master class which will explore the different communication styles that are required for a high-performance team and how to get the best out of them. This master class, scheduled for December 4, looks at transformational and servant leadership as key tools to improve productivity and get better results from the team. It also will share proven tools to overcome miscommunication, the number one reason for organizational and team conflicts.

 The “New ways to advertise on Facebook” is a master class for persons who are interested in taking their digital marketing to the next level without significantly increasing their cost. “There are new ways to engage with Facebook users to market products and services, which are underutilized. Studies from Hootsuite, an international social media planning platform, indicate that 80 per cent of St. Maarten’s social media usage is Facebook. Facebook, when done correctly, can help to significantly grow one’s business. This is an ideal master class for those who want to scale their businesses,” coordinators said in a press release on Sunday.

  Each class will also provide attendees with templates and manuals and have the capacity of 20 seats. Registration is required and costs US $100 per class.
