"The training will be done online using Adobe Connect, which participants can link to from their home or business, provided a high-speed Internet connection is present.In this online training targeted at Maine tourism businesses, we will explore real-life examples of successful Facebook marketing,” said Erica Quin-Easter, who will facilitate the training.

Whether you love it or you hate it, Facebook has the lion's share of social media activity,” she added. “Maintaining an active and effective business presence online is as important today as having a good handshake, and social media keeps you connected to your customers and your business community.” The initiative is a project of the Maine Woods Consortium with funding support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development.
