It’s Lunch and Learn time tomorrow afternoon, and the topic is social media for small business. With like-minded people likely to gather, participants should bring plenty of digital business cards for sharing among business associates.

This should be especially valuable for small businesses as more and more people use the Internet and social media applications to conduct business and gather information.

Guest speaker is Clay Goetz, a digital marketing consultant, who will cover the basics of marketing on social network platforms and profile small businesses that have created a successful online presence.

The seminar begins at noon tomorrow at the Sanctuary Ultra Lounge, 2369 First Street, Livermore, which is located just a 16-minute drive from Dublin.

As well as thing, all businesses need to know how to attract potential customers quickly and the use of graphics is a smart way to do it. At 1:00 pm tomorrow, the Microsoft Store in Palo Alto will offer a class on PowerPoint animations.

Participants will learn how to use Flash during the hands-on workshop. The store is located at 660 Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto, and everybody taking part should bring a laptop.

Finally, people can learn how to plan for success at a discussion at 1:30 pm on the same day at the Grange Hall, 743 Diablo Road in Danville.

The event will focus on farming business and cover needed planning tools and techniques to successfully run a farming business, and will include guest speakers from successful farms.
