    Brief Summary of "Understanding Twitter in 140 Characters
    or Less"

    Presented by Michelle Arbore
    Social Media Guru / Trainer / Speaker

    When I discuss the different social media platforms, I hear the same thing over and over again; "What is Twitter?" "What are hashtags and how do I use them?" "I just don't get Twitter at all." I smile every time I hear those questions or comments because I know once people learn more about how Twitter can help their business, they will learn to love it.

    During my presentation, people will learn what Twitter is, what makes Twitter different than other social media platforms, how to use Twitter for your business, who to follow, the different types of Tweets, what to Tweet, what hashtags (#) are and how to use them, and so much more!

    "Using LinkedIn For Business"
    Presented by Ginny Brandreth

    3 years ago I found myself disconnected and needing to grow my business quickly.  I had less than 30 LinkedIn connections and that dreadful ghost icon for my profile picture.  I knew I needed to understand LinkedIn quickly in order to succeed.

    Today I put LinkedIn to work for me to build connections, visibility, credibly and new business.  Let me show you the “why and how” of LinkedIn. 
     
    You’ll learn:
    • Why it’s important to your career and/or business to have a robust presence on LinkedIn profile
    • Why, as a business owner, you need to start with “you” before your company on LinkedIn
    • How to amp-up your profile, the do’s and don’ts, and elements you haven’t thought of to boost your visibility and credibility
    • How to set up a Company Page and Showcase Pages and why it’s important to do so
    • Helpful hints to make LinkedIn easier

    Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 8 AM to 9 AM
