Social media seminars start soon

March 9, 2012 by  

Between the University of Missouri Extension Center and the St. Louis Missouri SCORE Chapter, St. Peters professionals will be getting plenty of information on online marketing and social media this March.

The fun begins on the 21st with the University of Missouri Extension Center giving a presentation called “How to Leverage LinkedIn for Your Business”. Sometimes best described as a social media site that’s geared toward professionals, LinkedIn is a fantastic place for businesspeople to discuss trends and ideas while networking. More than just an opportunity to reach key decision-makers through the Internet, the site’s user demographic makes it an invaluable tool for reaching a larger audience and better establishing an online presence. When used in conjunction with digital business cards , the potential rewards are even greater.

As the title would suggest, the upcoming event at the University of Missouri Extension Center is going to cover the fundamentals of getting more out of LinkedIn. Sitting at a price of $39, the timeframe of 9:00 am to 11:00 am has certainly been well thought through.

Also taking place in the morning is another comprehensive workshop in “Building Blocks of Search and E-mail Marketing”. Going beyond the basic levels of having a website, this St. Louis SCORE seminar will provide business owners with an explanation of the pros and cons of online traffic sources, the importance of having a content strategy, as well as the proper utilization of e-mail marketing.

Whether attending the seminar on social media or the one on e-mail advertising, St. Peters entrepreneurs have nothing to lose by attending.
