Free Social Media for Small Businesses Seminar Coming to Chatham

The Chatham-Kent Small Business Centre in partnership with 519 Events & Promotions have teamed up to offer local businesses a free Social Media for Small Businesses Seminar on June 28, 2018.  The event will feature an introduction to social media tools geared to help people who are just starting to use social media from a business perspective.

Whether a business already has a Facebook page, Twitter profile, or is just staring to explore communicating with social media audiences, the seminar will provide them with helpful information plus tips and tricks to build and increase their online presence.

“Many new businesses, and even some seasoned businesses, have approached us for help with understanding how to use social media to better reach their customers,” said Glen Norton, Small Business Consultant with Chatham-Kent Economic Development Small Business Centre. “Some have experience with social media for personal use, but bringing into a business environment requires a different set of skills, and this seminar will help them towards gaining those skills.”

In addition to helping businesses understand how to use free and paid social media marketing tools, they will also learn how data from the tools will enable them to evaluate the return on investment.

“We have people asking us all the time about how often they should be posting online, what they need to post, and how to ensure their message is reaching their audience,” said Moréna McDonald, Owner at 519 Events & Promotions. “This seminar will give us an opportunity to have a constructive conversation about some of the burning questions that businesses are asking, and also show them how to start building a successful strategy.”

The seminar is open to all businesses, both large and small, and will be hosted at the Chatham-Kent John D. Bradley Convention Centre starting at 6:30 p.m. To register, please e-mail cksbc@chatham-kent.ca or call Glen Norton at 519-351-7700.
