Using Your Online Presence & Social Media to Grow Your Business

A small business Lunch & Learn workshop series

Owning and growing a small business requires hard work and dedication. Small business owners wear many hats and often struggle to acquire all of the skills they need to be effective in all aspects of managing and growing their business. One area of need is the online and social media presence of the business. Many business owners don’t have the time or the skill set to set this up or manage it effectively.

This series of four workshops is designed for small business owners to learn about how their online presence and social media can increase sales and grow their business. The series is set up to apply to the business owner that is just starting out or learning about a website and social media, to the business owner that is well versed but wants to convert more “likes” to sales.

The following is a listing of the four workshops:
