Small Budgets, Big Results: August #SMCHI Educational Event
Wednesday, August 7, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (HST)
Social media is never a small task—from the ever-changing platforms and tools to staying on top of trends and best practices, from the daily management to targeted campaigns, social media can be a full-time job. But often times we are faced with large tasks with little resources.
Join us for an interactive event where you will learn how you can get big results from small budgets from some of our most talented Social Media Club members. This event will be a little different so be prepared to move around! We will answer questions such as:
- What are ways non-profits are maximizing their budget?
- How can you extend the conversation on social media during live events?
- How can an employee policy help make your organization more efficient?
- How can you harness your employees and fans to create advocates?
- How can engagement be your biggest money-saving asset?
