SMBTV Seminar #15: Managing Social Media In Your Role
Beginner Level Seminar
After many requests to do so, we are taking SMBTV back to basics for the next seminar. Our panel of Social Media professionals will be walking us through social media management from a variety of perspectives. Far too often, social media is an afterthought in a marketing campaign, or an add on to a job description, or delegated to the realm of interns. Three professional marketers will be taking the audience through how to establish a social media strategy & expectations in a new role, how to manage social media with restrictions on resources, budget, and content, and how to manage social media for your own brand while running it. Join us at the lovely Troy Savings Bank Music Hall for the next SMBTV.
