What will be covered in this seminar:

You’ve thought about what social networks to use for your business or nonprofit, and you’re ready to take the next step. Where do you go from there? This webinar will give you a closer look at the popular social media networks – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+. We’ll show you the benefits of using each, how other organizations are marketing with them, and some dos and don’ts of each channel. You’ll also get tips on how to tell if your social media activity is working.

The content is targeted at the beginner to intermediate small-business or nonprofit marketer who is looking to build their marketing knowledge. They might be using other types of marketing tools, such as newsletters, and are considering either using social media marketing or simply adding one or more channels to their marketing efforts. The social media content in this presentation has some beginner best practices, but also adds specific directions (how many times to post in a day or week), and helps develop content ideas. We do not discuss reporting or measurement metrics or tools, but instead share general guidance on how to gauge social media marketing efforts based on audience reaction and engagement.

This presentation is a guide for small businesses or nonprofits who have been using social media marketing, but need some tips to take them to an intermediate level and/or add new channels to their marketing efforts.

Core concepts introduced include:

A closer look at the 5 most popular social networks

Facebook

Twitter

LinkedIn

Google+

Pinterest

Within each network

How to tell if it’s right for your business

What kind of content to create and post
