Let's get social! Jo Phillips and Joe Whitbread of Jo(e) Social Media will be presenting two sessions to help you make the most of your online platforms.

Social Media Psychology and Content Strategy:
Knowing HOW a social media platform works is useless if you don’t understand WHY consumers are using each platform, the way they do. Business owners, entrepreneurs, event organizers, non profit leaders and marketing managers who learn to generate consistent, creative and relevant content to a growing audience will; achieve success. We’ll help you utilize the many marketing and advertising tools available on each platform to help find return on investment and positive engagement on your channels. In this presentation, Jo(e) Social Media brings semblance to social media for business owners. Guests will leave with an actual strategy to accomplish online success.
October 16th, 10:00am-12:00pm
Learning LinkedIn:
Almost every professional who reads this will say the same thing: “I have a LinkedIn profile but I don’t actually use it.” LinkedIn is the most undervalued social media platform and when you know how to use it, you’ll wonder why you weren’t actually using it everyday. Many connections, professional associates and consumers are watching. Learn how to use your LinkedIn strategically and with a clear motivation, to earn valuable business opportunity and unmatched market share, through networking.
October 16th, 1:00pm-3:00pm
