Finally, a Social Media Workshop that is both instructional and interactive.  Bring your laptop and get started.  As business we understand that the playing field has changed regarding marketing. It is time to learn how to use social media networking platforms to get you noticed and help you find more clients.

Today’s business environment has changed; standard advertising models just don’t work. Customers are looking for a more information and willing to be engaged by a business to get what they want. Social Media is a constant, we keep hearing about it, but very few are actually doing anything with it.  We have general, introductory workshops and more in-depth, 3 hour hands-on workshops that help you develop your skills.

We will get you started on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.  Learn some of the lingo and the shortcuts that help you use your social media ‘time’ effectively.


What you will learn:

  1. LinkedIn: Learn how  to use: Recommendations, Introductions, Groups and other features specific to your needs
  2. Facebook: Linking your blog and moderating comments on your Facebook Page, posting events
  3. Twitter: Using #hashtags, learning to tweet and re-tweet
  4. Instagram: Understanding why posting pictures can help you get customers
  5. Blogs: How this platform can transform your message to your clients and fuel your social media marketing train.

We will answer any questions that you might have about each platform.  We want you to learn how to use social media to grow your business.  We will explain how you can integrate it with other promotions, special events or newsletters that you currently use to promote your business.  

We will walk you through the platforms and give you specific directions and you will take home a workbook to help you learn.

Introducing LinkedIn: Understanding the Fastest Growing Social Network Platform

One person joins LinkedIn every second.  It is the fastest growing networking platform for one good reason: Companies do not let their employees engage on Facebook or Twitter at work but they do let them (even encourage them) to sign up on LinkedIn. You are now exposed to a whole group of people that are not normally on traditional social media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube).  LinkedIn is a very powerful networking tool: find out why. Let’s get you using more of LinkedIn tonight!
