Marketing Trends for 2019
Thursday, January 17
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
ATB - 404 Main St S

More and more businesses are starting to take their social media seriously and that trend will continue in 2019. Learning to manage a Facebook business page next year, should become a priority, including reading analytics and page insights. There’s also increased attention on Instagram and LinkedIn. When businesses learn to really use their social media channels with a strategy and budget, to accurately target distinct and relevant audiences, they’ll experience return on investment that will far surpass the traditional advertising channels they’re used to. Join Joe Whitbread and Jo Phillips from Jo(e) Social Media in Lacombe, Alberta on January 17, for a look at social media in 2019 and why you should start taking yours seriously.
