Grow Your Business – A Free Social Media Training

It is undeniable the social media plays a crucial role in business’ marketing strategies. It’s a way to not only reach new segments of your target audience and promote your offerings but also a way to engage with ideal customers to learn more about their wants and needs.

A recent article by Hootsuite states that there are 3.196 billion active social media users in the world. That means, regardless of where your business is located, having a social media presence creates the opportunity to increase your customer base and your sales.

The article goes on to express 23 Benefits of Social Media for Business. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat not only offer a way to showcase the products and services your business offers but also keeps your business name top of mind when consumers are ready to make a purchase.

Social media can help increase your website traffic or referrals to your e-commerce site. Your presence on various platforms can also be a great way to source content or determine what kind of products to carry in your store.

“Ask your followers what they want, or engage in social listening, to come up with ideas for content you can create yourself. Put simply: Give people what they’re asking for. It’s a sure way to create content that people will want to read and share.”

Knowing the value and impact social media can have for businesses, Valley County Economic Development and several partners are offering a free social media training on August 22, 2018 featuring Mike Bitter with Affordable Social Media, Inc. as the guest speaker.

Mike will share how Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat can be used to grow a business. The training will also serve as a valuable networking event with other area businesses. Reserve your seat for this free training by calling (308) 728-7875 or email kristinafoth@ordnebraska.com.
