Simple Strategies of Email and Social Media

At the heart of small business marketing are the campaigns that drive action – collections of marketing
activities that help a small business or organization to achieve its goals and objectives. Newsletters and Announcements have become a core component of those campaign choices. Email is more important than ever – to the communication efforts of businesses and nonprofits everywhere; and to the customer, donor, client or supporter of those organizations. This session will reveal some simple but effective best practices and considerations for the small business or nonprofit seeking to make their email newsletters more effective.
Attendees of this presentation will learn:
• The different types of newsletters
• What to write about in your newsletter or announcement and how to consider using images
• Subject line best practices, and when to send your newsletter
• The importance of understanding how connected email and social media are…they have to be done
together.
• What types of additional tools might be useful

Join us and learn some great new strategies to help your email and social media efforts be more effective components of one of the core campaign types, newsletters and announcements.

Basics of Social Media: Why use it, which channels and what to say.

Have you been thinking about marketing your business with social media, but you feel overwhelmed and not sure how to get started? Or maybe you’re not convinced that it works? This seminar will show you the value of using social media to reach your customers, how it can lead to new customers and how it drives repeat business from your current customers. We’ll take a look at the 5 most popular social media networks – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest – and help you decide what is right for your business.
We’ll also look at what comes next: how and what to post on social media.

Build Your Marketing Toolkit: A framework for small businesses and organizations

Many small businesses and organizations find themselves seeking the right strategies to make their marketing efforts as effective as possible. But with so many different marketing activities that they could focus on, they often miss some of the important marketing concepts that will help them understand why those activities are so important.

Attendees of this presentation will learn:

• How marketing has changed in ways that benefit small businesses.
• The importance of setting goals and objectives for their marketing efforts.
• The 4 Pillars or Marketing Success – a framework that shows how different marketing activities all fit
together, and will help small businesses reflect on their own marketing program.
