Social Media Lab

social-media-labDo you own a small business? How about a BIG business? Are you reaching your customers online? Do you want to learn how to effectively use social media to reach your existing customers AND build relationships with new ones?

Social Media Lab is a four-week course offering the how to basics for promoting your business through social networking and blogging. Each week we will cover building a different site in a 90 minute lab. Find out from the experts how to build Friends, Fans and Followers.

  • Linked In – from building your personal profile to participating in groups, learn the ins and outs for getting the most out of this online rolodex and resume.
  • Facebook – build a Fan page and find out ways to promote it to your friends and customers. This is one online cocktail party that you don’t want to miss.
  • Twitter – create a Twitter account and learn proper twittiquette. Tweeting is like text messaging to the world, just don’t say anything that you don’t want Grandma to see.
  • Blogging – learn the basics of how to blog on WordPress. Your blog is the foundation of your social media program.  A well-built blog will be one of your Web sites top 10 referral sources.

We are booking Social Media Labs for fall in northwest Georgia and metro Atlanta.  Contact me at 770-383-3360 x20 to book a lab or for details on a lab near you.  As Labs are booked, we will update the seminar schedule.

For fun you build Squidoo pages and post to Forums. All of your sites interconnect and you sometimes can be found Tweeting while driving.
