Social Media for Small Business Workshops Series
Create a WordPress Website/Blog Session II $25, 21-Sep
This is a continuation of the first session which took place on 14-Sep. Bring your laptop and we’ll continue to create a basic website/blog for your business using WordPress. In addition to the pages we created in Session I, we’ll create a few side-bar widgets. We’ll take a look at the blog posts people wrote for homework and critique.
Create a Twitter Account for Your Business $25, 28-Sep
Bring your laptop and as a group, we’ll go through the steps required to set up a Twitter account and profile for your business. You’ll learn Twitter etiquette and how to engage Followers on the platform. If you attended the fist two sessions in this series and developed a website, I’ll show you how to create a link on your website to your Twitter account. When you leave, you will have a firm grasp on how to find and follow people and how to create relationships that will help you in your business.
To register, visit: www.contemporary-business-solutions.com/workshops. All workshops in the series will take place from 6-8pm in the Conference Room of the Worldwide Amplified Studio located on the Skywalk Level of the Partnership Building at 700 Locust Street in Downtown Des Moines.
Does Your Business Have a Tagline?
Mine does and I didn’t create it. Too often, ambitious entrepreneurs let the lack of company name keep them from moving forward with starting their business. It took me quite some time to arrive at the name of my business; but the tagline came from my community. Click here to read how the “Get It Done Girl” came to be. Reach out to your circle of influencers, those who know who you are and what you do, to help you create your business name and tagline. You may be surprised with the results.
Have you discovered Kurrently?
Kurrently allows users to search Facebook and Twitter in real time for conversations they’d like to follow. While Twitter Search allows you to only search in Twitter, Kurrently has the added benefit of incorporating Facebook conversations into the mix. You can also search once and subscribe to the results via RSS feed. Pretty neat!
