Description

Learn how to market online like a PRO!

Are you trying to figure out whether to jump into social media marketing? Are you confused why everyone is telling you to get on Instagram?

Join this social media intensive that's been split into three sessions July 11, 18, and 25 from 11:00am - 12:30pm at The Resource Center.

Allison Stewart Bishins, social media consultant and owner of Handmade PNW, will walk you through the basics, like what you can expect to gain from social media, how to get there, how much time and money you should be spending on social media, and more!

This workshop is best suited for businesses that already have an Instagram and Facebook page, so if you don't have one, set one up soon and get familiar with those formats! There is a heavy focus throughout the course on Instagram, with some focus on Facebook. Strategies discussed will be useful on platforms like Snapchat and Pinterest as well, but those platforms won't be specifically addressed.

Register for one, two, or all THREE workshops!

Part I: Intro to Social Media Marketing

You can't actually get customers from social media, can you? YES, you can!

Create a foundation for your social media strategy by understanding what you can and can't gain from social media marketing, how and why your potential clients are online, and how much time you should expect to invest in social media marketing (it may be less than you think!).

Part II: Make Your Pictures Pop: Cell Phone Photography for Social Media

Are you posting dull, lifeless pictures on your Instagram? Inspirational quotes and nothing else? Or are your posts just not getting seen?

Learn to use your cell phone to take pictures of your business, products, and yourself, that resonate with viewers! Learn how to use simple editing tools within Instagram (no separate apps needed!). Attendees can bring an item from their business to photograph, or dress to get a new headshot or 'busy working' shot. This portion requires a cell phone with a decent camera, suggested 5 megapixles or higher. You don't need a fancy iphone, but a flip phone won't work!

Part III: How to Build Local Support on Instagram and Facebook

Instagram is a big place and finding your local supporters can be a crucial step in a successful social media strategy, even for a national or international company!

Learn how to create a local support network for your business, attract new local clients, and find likeminded local business owners that you can refer people to, work with, collaborate, patron, and more!
