What would happen if you stood on the street and asked random people what they know about your business? What if it was socially acceptable to insert yourself into a conversation two people are having about your business? What if you could know what your customers are thinking before they made the decision to buy elsewhere? What if you could find out who your most loyal customers are and reward them? You can, and it’s called Social Media. That is why the world has gone Facebook and YouTube crazy. That’s why every news station is on Twitter, and precisely why you are hearing so much about blogs.

Social media allows you to talk to your customers, interact, and create something worth talking about. Through this seminar we’ll explore how ANY business can use one or more of these tools to impact business. Social media will no longer seem like something everybody else is doing; it will be something you’re excited to try as we uncover your hidden and underutilized assets you already have to make social media successful. If you are ready to grow your business, Social Media for Small Business Owners is a must!
