Four students from Dr. Carol Gaumer’s marketing plans development class at Frostburg State University recently contacted me and asked if my business, Spectrum Design Services, could be the subject of a marketing plan project. I would like to share this positive experience.
Anna D’Angostino, Trevor Flynn, Jerel Womack and Keaton Zimmerman did an excellent job asking relevant questions and pulling together information to support their recommendations for my business. They were interested and engaged in the project and the group appeared to work together well. My time with them was a pleasure.
Their proposal will have a positive impact on my future business plans. Several points in their document and presentation will be implemented in the near future.
What I found especially interesting and relevant was information about the demographic trends of Allegany County through 2040. This has changed my thinking about where the greatest need will be for the services my business can provide in the future.
This experience represents only a small part of the wonderful benefits of having a university in our community. I think our future is in good hands.
