Workshop I: Developing Your Brand on Facebook and Twitter

with Eric Metelka, Founder and CEO, Digital Media Certification

Gone are the days when a brand was simply a logo and a catch phrase.  Social media is facilitating a two-way dialogue between customers and companies, both large and small. Customers can now interact with and directly shape their favorite brands.  This workshop will explore how users interact with brands online, and how businesses can deliver great content via Twitter and Facebook.

Workshop II: Intro to User Acquisition Marketing

with Anna Lindow, New York Regional Director, General Assembly 

User Acquisition Marketing is more than just bringing new people to your product.  It's being able to measure the impact of your efforts to more effectively grow your base.  This workshop serves as a basic introduction to the practice aimed at giving participants an overview of key terminology, concepts and approaches.  


Workshop III: Intro to Business Development

with Keith Cutler, Principal, KC Marketing Group

Learning how to most effectively sell both your produce and yourself is a key component in growing a successful business.  This workshop provides a detailed understanding of the sales process, from identifying your audience and making key customer connections, to creating effective presentations and nailing the pitch.  Students will come away with valuable sales and networking techniques.
