Social Media 101- Basics of Social Media for Small Business
Wednesday, August 24, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Online Webinar – no cost

They're Out There - How Do You Reach Them? You know your prospects, clients and members are active on social media. Are you asking: can social media really be harnessed for your business or nonprofit? Perhaps you're not convinced that it works - or you are, but you're feeling overwhelmed and are not sure how to get started marketing your business with social media.
This seminar will show you the value of using social media to reach your customers, members and prospects - plus how it can drive repeat business from your current customers, and how it can lead to new customers, members and volunteers!
We'll take a look at the 5 most popular social media networks - Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram - and discuss:
-What each network is about
-What to post
-How often to post
-The business benefit of using each social network
We'll also look at what comes next: what kinds of engaging, share-worthy content to post to social media, how to get started, and how to use a content calendar to plan your social media posts.
