Mini-Social Media Boot Camp

Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM

Are you tired of hearing your customers, clients and colleagues talk about Facebook Pages for Business and Twitter—and you don’t have a clue? It’s Time for You to Go Social!


This mini-social media boot camp will focus on helping you learn what social media is and how to use it effectively in your business. It will give you everything you need to get started in the emerging world of social networking. The goal of this mini-social media boot camp is to take you beyond the “what is it” phase and have you putting social media to work for you.

You’ll learn about Facebook Pages and Twitter and how to get started using them today. In this “hands-on environment” we will review the most popular social networks and discuss their effectiveness, including how to choose which one is best for you. You will be setting up your social media profiles, so be ready to have some fun! We will start off with you gaining an understanding of what social media is, how it directly affects you and why you should be using it. You’ll leave with a Facebook business page and Twitter account that will move you toward building your social media footprint—-that allows you to begin engaging with your customers, clients, and colleagues online.

This is a hands-on workshop and will be held in a computer lab, but you may bring your laptop.

Level: Beginner/Intermediate.

Who should attend? This Boot Camp is designed to meet the needs of people who do not know where to begin with social media. The workshop was created for those who consider themselves to be at beginner level in social networking.


  • Basic PC skills and internet knowledge are required;
  • You must have a working email address and know the password;
  • Optional: Please bring any photos and/or your logo on a USB flash drive or saved on your hard drive. You will be using them to build your social media profiles.

Registration is limited to 36 participants and seats will be assigned to registered participants first. Walk-in participants are welcome.
