Have you been told you need to post, tweet, like and pin to attract more clients, but haven’t a clue what it all means? Or maybe you’ve been hearing how blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and more can help you grow an online community, but don’t know how to use social media to market yourself and gain more clients?
Whatever the case may be, please join us for this interactive breakfast discussion about building a social media toolkit. You’ll learn about the various social media platforms, and which ones are right for you and your business. You’ll also see how social media tools can help you improve the relationship with your current clients and find new ones.
We’ll also discuss the advantages of growing a community with social media and how your toolkit can help you get the attention of local or national media, book publishers, and culinary companies.
Finally, you’ll learn how to use social media effectively. We’ll discuss setting goals and time limits, understanding the boundaries between the personal and the professional, and how to find expert help so you don’t have to do it all yourself.
The talk will conclude with a Q&A session.
