For most small business owners, myself included, time and money are in short supply, especially when it comes to marketing. The “Social Media for Small Business” workshop series will begin with a free workshop on why it is important to engage in social media as a small business owner and we’ll discuss which platforms you should engage in to get the most out of your time. Bring your laptops to the subsequent, hands-on workshops where we will create a WordPress website/blog, Twitter account, Facebook FanPage, LinkedIn Profile and a MailChimp e-newsletter. I’ve also designed a workshop which will introduce you to the tools necessary to manage all of these platforms and to create content to share with your consumers.


All workshops in the series will take place from 6-8pm in the Sienna Room of Connxions (Just off the Douglas Exit at I-80, 3901-121st St, Urbandale, IA 50323, Phone: 515-276-3333, www.connectingwithyou.com)
