In the second phase of our Business Bites Social Marketing series, we will be presenting how to use FaceBook to offer deals and discounts and sign up friends. Once you have set up a FaceBook page, how do you use it to the best business advantage? On Tuesday, August 21 at noon, we will have several successful business owners give examples of how they have used FaceBook to enhance their business and reward their fans. It’s fine if you set up an account, but if you don’t utilize it, it doesn’t do your business any good.
Find out how with just some simple steps, you can increase your friend base and potentially generate more business. The cost to attend the short session is $7 for chamber members and $10 for non-members and includes lunch. The class will be held at the Chamber of Commerce conference room.
Then, on Thursday, August 30 the Chamber will host a more extensive training class about Social Marketing. We will be offering a 3-hour course on how to set up a business FaceBook page and how to integrate FaceBook with your website and blog and use it to enhance your advertising capability. Marcy Mitchell, owner of MTECH Internet Marketing will be our facilitator. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops. The course will be held at the Community Center from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the cost is only $25 for Chamber members and $30 for non-members. This includes the training and breakfast items and snacks. Don’t forget your laptops!
Please RSVP for either session so that we can make sure that we have enough room and enough food ordered. With just a few steps and some great training, you can jump on the social marketing bandwagon and take advantage of the latest internet advertising techniques.
