You CAN Tweet – Twitter for the Busy Sacramento Small Business Owner
Event on 2014-08-13 19:00:00
Twitter could be your greatest networking & prospecting tool … if you knew how to use it.
Are you one of the people who loudly says I don't get this tweeting and pinning and taking photos of your meals? You're not alone. Many business owners are too busy to spend their leisure time on the computer, but a very significant part of your market spends time on social platforms like Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook. If you ignore these platforms, you are ignoring these prospects.Do you agree with these statements?
Your best customers no longer use the yellow pages. People breeze thru the commercials on the TV shows they've recorded. All the mail I get is junk mail, I don't even look at it anymore. Hundreds of millions of people spend hours and hours looking at social media.
Over half a million businesses are using social media to connect. In this 90 minute workshop, we'll show you how you can, too.
Sacramento Small Business Owners, Do you want to learn to Tweet? It's one of the best ways to attract new customers and gain the attention of the media to promote your business.
You probably have a Facebook Page, and that can be a good way to reach your current customers. But Twitter is far better for communicating with people you don't already know. Because Twitter messages are short (just 140 characters allowed), you have to get to the point quickly. The mix of users is different from other social media platforms and you don't have to compete with funny photos and videos from high school classmates.
You've seen hashtags on your favorite television show and wonder if that's something you could capitalize on for your own business. You may have even started your own Twitter account. Whether you're a beginner or an old pro at Twitter, I can help you increase your reach and influence.
In this 90 minute workshop, we'll learn techniques to help you engage with prospects, clients and influencers without spending enormous amounts of time. I'll introduce you to the most effective strategies and tools. Before the class, be sure to download the free Twitter app on your smartphone and bring your phone with you to class.
