SBDC Webinar to Help Small Businesses with Online Business Presence Small-business owners in Wyoming invest their time, effort and resources into their online business presence. But, do they know what their return on investment is? A Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) business fitness webinar, titled “Tips for Measuring Online Success,” is scheduled Thursday, March 1, from 2-3 p.m. Small-business owners will be able to learn more about the analytic tools available to them; how to track how users interact with their online presence; and fine-tune their marketing efforts. The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

This webinar will teach them how to gauge the effectiveness of those efforts and improve their marketing results.” The fee for the program is $15, and attendees can register at This program will be recorded and available to registered attendees who are unable to attend.

Elysha Cook Allstate 351 Uinta Dr. (307) 875-7544 Insurance Products & Services Insurance is unlike any other product out there you pay for it and hope you never have to use it. And that makes paying more than you need to that much more uncomfortable. With a policy from Allstate, you can help keep your insurance costs low with the wide variety of products. Keep in mind, not all products are available in every state. The best way to get all that you qualify for is to get an insurance quote specific to Wyoming. You can get a rough "ballpark" insurance quote from many companies online, but talking with an agent allows you to ask questions and get a quote for coverage that matters most to you. As an Allstate agent, I can prepare a quote that details the coverage, deductibles (your portion of a loss) and cost (premium) of your insurance policy. Some of the Insurance products and services offered at my Allstate agency include: • Auto Insurance • Car Insurance • Flood Insurance • Insurance • Life Insurance • Motorcycle Insurance • Home Insurance • Insurance Quote • Insurance Agency • Business Insurance • Annuities • Retirement • College Savings Plan • Renters Insurance • Personal Umbrella Insurance • Snowmobile Insurance • ATV Insurance • Boat Insurance • Condo Insurance
