Do your customers have fun when they are inside your shop or restaurant? Do they appreciate the fact that your employees are knowledgeable about your menu items and retail products when they are visiting your shop? For most successful local businesses, the answers are yes. But what happens when your business moves “online?” Do your Facebook, Twitter and blog posts translate that fun and knowledge to your customers when they interact with your brand online?

This seminar will give you tips and tactics to create social media posts that deliver the personality of your unique business. Attendees will learn the keys to successful social media programs on how to engage your customers on a regular basis and to successfully translate what happens in your store via your social media posts. Learn how – and when to use humor and product knowledge to create social media posts that will engage your customers on a regular basis. (Parking available in adjacent lot)
