THIS EVENT IS OVER
“You may have heard that in order to market your business, you need a blog, a Twitter account, and a Facebook page. But what are you actually supposed to DO with all these marketing outlets, and how in the world do you find the time to keep up with them all?”
In this workshop, Diane will examine blogging, Twitter, and Facebook as storytelling tools, boiling down a business down to its story elements, and then translating that story into interesting posts that garner attention. She will also look at some helpful strategies for getting plenty of social marketing done without spending an exorbitant amount of time on the computer.
