  • Hello Patricia-

    Social Media is actually not that difficult once you develop a strategy for incorporating it into your business. I don't know where you live, but I put on Social Media Boot Camps. Our next workshop is this Saturday in Corvallis, OR. here's the info: http://socialmedia-bootcamp.com/

    This site also has some great resources. If you start to read some of the blogs we follow it will help clarify a lot of the tools/terminologies/applications. It's definitely not something you can learn over night, but diving in and using them is the best way to learn. I always suggest starting with Linkedin, Faceboook and Twitter (and Slideshare of course).

    What is your business by the way?

    Caroline

  • I'm having trouble grabbing this concept and running with it. I don't think I want to take the time to be on these social networking groups and am wondering how beneficial they are for businesses. I really would like to learn more and become more enthused......
