During the interactive workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the hows and whys of marketing green goods. Behe will cover topics from business purpose/philosophy to marketing math and social media. Behe also will discuss effective merchandising techniques, understanding customer behavior during their shopping experience, pricing strategies and more.
