Social Media Seminars

Session II - Using FaceBook and LinkedIn - the basics for leveraging these social media networks to grow your business or brand  (2 hours)

Viral Networking Session II is a STRATEGY session for using Facebook and LinkedIn. While the role of social media in growing your business is briefly recapped, the main thrust of this session is an in-depth presentation on how to leverage the Facebook and LinkedIn social networks you've created to bring about result.

This is a good session for those that have signed on to LinkedIn and created a Facebook page, but don't know what to do next. Facebook PAGES and GROUPS are briefly covered as well as GROUPS and ANSWERS in LinkedIn.

"Mindie's session at the Bay to Ocean Writer's Conference opened up a new world for many of the people in attendance. I have some knowledge of the subject matter, and the session provided many pointers and helpful hints that I did not want the session to end. There were many questions from the audience because they wanted to know more and more and more. It was an excellent session."
~Rick Barton - Caroline County Administrator / Writer (Ranger Rick)
