Social Media Basics for Your Small Business – Visually Speaking
This workshop will help you begin using the more “visual” forms of social media to reach your audience. We’ll discuss platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest and learn how to bring content into them with ease. In this workshop, you will learn how to set up these accounts for your business and how to create engaging and useful messaging with your brand on it. Additional takeaways include how content impacts your website traffic, fun and enjoyable use of these channels, ways to make your content shareable, and best practices for messaging on these accounts.
