Keeping the Water Flowing
July 13, 2015
ASU SBDC Director Dave Erickson and Business Development Training coordinator Dezaray Johnson met with Micheal Templeton and Cody Giddens of M-DWSC to plan the project. They then met on numerous occasions with Cody to work on a business/marketing plan, including financial projections. In addition Dezaray Johnson helped with marketing materials, website development, social media (Facebook) and a marketing brainstorming session. Graduate assistant Thao Tu assisted with research on producing bottled water products, as M-DWSC wanted to look into the possibility of bottling and selling its own bottled water products.
Erickson was invited to present the final draft to the board of directors for M-DWSC for review and suggestions. The draft was well received and a final business plan and projections were created. The staff and board of M-DWSC were very pleased with the results and they forwarded a copy to the TWDB for their review. Johnson and SBDC staff will continue to work with M-DWSC on marketing issues.
