I’ve spoken here and there on social media strategy and community management techniques over the years, most recently with the Reno Sparks Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Reno-Sparks program. I try to approach Social Media a little differently. It’s my strong belief that you can’t teach people to be social. You either get it or you don’t. You can show people the benefits of applying their brand socially or of adopting certain strategies, but the basis is inherent in the individual. The tools are fairly simple, I can help people get set up and connected, but anyone with a few hours, or days and a personality that lets them jump in and get their feet wet can become a social media expert on their own in pretty short order.
Colin Loretz, who runs the Coworking space Reno Collective where Arborglyph is based, and I will be sharing our experience and insights into interactive marketing with social media on October 22nd from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. How to be your own Social Media Expert will help you become your own social media and internet marketing expert. This full day workshop will help you to learn how to get more traffic, engage your customers, take control of your online reputation and build strong relationships to help grow your business.
We hope this will be a valuable class for local businesses, freelancers and small shops looking to show their face on social media sites. If you are interested, please sign up ASAP as Colin is offering it up at half price for the first 10 people to sign up. All of the proceeds from this class are going to support the Reno Collective and fund improvements and new equipment.
