Social Media & Email Marketing ~ Simple & Effective 

Social Media Marketing Made Simple - & Effective


Learn the Best Practices for your social media presence - including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & more – that you can use to build the relationships that mean success for your business or organization! Come learn the essential elements of transforming new prospects into repeat, passionate customers, members, volunteers and referral generators – and who in turn help you grow your business using the power of social media marketing.


  • Extend your online marketing reach;
  • Reach with endorsement; that is, get your passionate customers/members to tell your story and spread the word; and
  • Leverage content that helps your friends, fans & followers to share their experience.


"Social Media Marketing Made Simple" is a two-hour workshop that will cover some of the strategies and best practices to get the most out of your social media activities –  including time management and measuring the return of your activities. We will:

  • talk about what social media marketing really is,
  • see how to incorporate it into your business operations without losing productivity, and
  • look at real-life examples of how other businesses & organizations (from one-person shops to larger organizations) are using these low-cost tools to gain visibility, develop relationships and drive engagement, sales and bottom-line results.


We will discuss the various social media outlets that are available, how they interact together, ways to leverage their inherent strengths and tools to evaluate them for best use for your business or organization.
