Event description

Description

Startups new and old value a strong social media presence. A thoughtfully crafted social strategy is an asset that strengthens brand awareness, sales and customer acquisition.

With ever-changing algorithms and new platforms emerging, getting to your first thousand followers or growing your brand on a crowded channel can be daunting. Founders wonder about efficiency: which channel presents the most opportunity for their business? They think about execution: what is it going to take to have a meaningful social following? And they want to know about outcomes: what results should they look for and when is it time to doubledown or change course?

Join us on October 30th for a social media workshop where you’ll learn how to effectively leverage social media to grow your startup.

You’ll learn

  • Why social media is important for your startup
  • How to build a cohesive Social Media Style Guide and Social Media Strategy that speak to your business objectives
  • Platforms and tactics for follower growth and engagement
  • How to measure success on Social Media
  • Tools and trends for 2020
  • Hands-on strategy workshopping and content development


About the Instructor

Sydney Stein is the co-founder and CEO of Wimzē, a Brooklyn-based social storytelling agency working exclusively with mission-driven wellness brands. With experience in the digital space spanning over 7 years, Sydney has a holistic understanding of social media and how to use it to support overarching business objectives. Sydney’s professional interests bloomed at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she studied Journalism and Dance, and received a certificate in the Technology, Arts and Media Program (TAM).

Sydney’s professional career began in SEO, (Search Engine Optimization) as a content strategist and eventually a junior project manager, responsible for building out the social media department of a digital agency. It was at this time that she met her co-founder, Taylor Rohwedder and launched Wimzē. Wimzē was founded on the core concept of “mission alignment.” Good ideas come from good people that are inspired by positive impact. Wimzē is very committed to using the power of advertising with integrity and the goal of making the world a better, more livable place.

Wimzē has taught many workshops around Manhattan, Long Island and Los Angelos for independent entities, as well as NYC’s Small Business Services (SBS), Beauty X Summit and more.
