Social Media for Entrepreneurs
We’re taking Business Over Breakfast on the road! This month we’ll be at the NSCC Waterfront Campus with online marketing expert Jeff White, principal with Brightwhite Design (www.brightwhite.ca) and Joel Kelly, digital strategist with CCL Group (www.cclgroup.ca), as they discuss the social media phenomenon and how it is already affecting how business is done. Are you LinkedIn? A Facebook user? Do you Digg ? Do you tweet? Are you aware of your social media reputation? Do you enable or block your employees from social media sites? Do you think it does or doesn’t apply to your business? Cut through the standard hype surrounding social media and learn about how business can tap into this mega trend to: build brand awareness, network with other business professionals, and increase sales and maybe most important of all, create a dialogue between you and your target audience.
