MJ & David, a sister-brother team, own HUTdogs, a creative services business.  They are  known for eye-catching graphic design and web solutions but, that's not all they do!  They teach businesses and nonprofits how to master the basics of online social media marketing tools. 

They are talented, inspired leaders in Facebook and Constant Contact training. Their real world experience, as small business owners themself, is key to their effectiveness in teaching others.

Their teaching style focuses on both the strategy and the “how to” of using today’s marketing tools. They constantly study the ever-evolving nature of social media.

They have a knack for walking clients through the steps needed to feel comfortable with the full range of on-line social media tools, especially seasoned business owners who don't quite know where to start or what to do. 

They have made presentations to thousands of attendees at various events throughout Southern California and have become known for their Facebook and Constant Contact trainings and strategies.

About the workshop:

Build Your Online Marketing Toolkit with Email and Social Media

Every business and non-profit should have an online presence and a marketing strategy. Building your online marketing toolkit and growing your business with Email and Social Media Marketing is a must. In this workshop, we will look at today's most effective online marketing tools, strategies, best practices and show real world examples.

This workshop is designed to give small businesses and nonprofits some simple ideas for growing their organizations using email marketing and social media. Topics include what to write about, how to get more people to stop and read your messages and how to get more action, or reaction, to your messages and offers.

We will discuss what it means to run a campaign and tactics for measuring success without spending a lot of time or money. This class is best suited for beginners in online marketing and those that want to brush up on today's tools and refresh their ideas.

We will touch on Facebook, using images for higher impact and we will even cover the importance of mobile-friendly content for higher engagement. This is a great class for beginners and smaller organizations looking to accomplish more in less time and with a small budget.

This workshop will focus on how to optimize your email and social media marketing and how to cultivate the relationships that matter most to your business or non-profit.

This will be an interactive workshop featuring "The HUTdogs Hot Seat." During the The HUTdogs Hot Seat portion, we (everyone in attendence) will generate ideas and brainstorm as a group.
