Marketing Your Business Using Social Media
This social media tele-clinic or workshop can be scheduled on demand for your group or organization. If this sounds interesting to you, contact me to schedule this training for your organization or group of small business owners.
Social media has added a new, powerful set of tools to your marketing toolbox, making it easy to meet, network and develop relationships with people online that was once out of the reach of many small business owners. More importantly, social media is making it easier to meet new potential clients and market your business. But how you integrate these tools into your marketing plan will make the difference between a successful marketing strategy and an overwhelming exercise. Whether your business targets consumers or other businesses, social media is going to impact on your marketing and ultimately the success of your business. Get Connected, Get Found events provide practical advice on how to select the right social media tools to connect with your target audience and get noticed.
The Teleclinic was fantastic. We covered so much material my head is spinning. I have enough To-do’s to keep me busy for 6 months. – Beverly Harvey, Harvey Careers, www.harveycareers.com
