Social Media Breakfast Edmonton #12
8:30 - 10:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 25th, 2011
CBC Centre Stage
The Edmonton Social Media Breakfast (SMBYEG) is pleased to announce Dana DiTomaso as this month’s guest speaker.
The topic for the November SMBYEG is:
Local + Social = Better Together
Social media enables us to reach around the world - but what's most important to your local business is how to reach into your backyard. In this session, you'll learn how to leverage social media tools such as check-ins and targeted searches to find local customers. You'll also learn how to find opportunities to dominate your local niche in the search results.
Stay after the discussion to network and share ideas within the realm of social media. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new-media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend.
Seating is limited and fills up quickly so hurry to RSVP on Eventbrite.com. Half the seats are available immediately with a second set released on Friday Oct. 21st at noon.
