Social Media with Planning & Purpose
Everyone uses social media, but utilization and effectiveness are two different things. Taking a look at your audience's reactions to content, using great photos and creating a planning document can take your social media to the next step. What's that look like? It's different for each business, but there are some simple tricks that are applicable to everyone. This one-hour seminar will touch on four topics: 1. Compelling Content, 2. Photo hacks/tips, 3. Content Scheduling, 4. Analyzing Results. Sponsored by Altavista On Track. Registration is required. Lunch is provided. REGISTER NOW>
