Social media started with email groups 15 years ago and then exploded with blogs ten years ago. It’s only getting hotter as social networks, microblogs, and video become standard business tools with names like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube. Social media are a proven channel to promote your brand, build trust, and create interest in your product. They’re customer-centric and empowering. Social media are conducive to viral marketing and so can lead to powerful exposure … at virtually no cost except your time.

Our seminar delivers everything you need to know to get started NOW!
