As part of our support and celebration of Small Business Week, I took a road trip up to Arborg Manitoba to speak with members of the Interlake business community. My goal? To once again “Demystify Social Media” for over 60 business community leaders, over a tasty buffet lunch at the Arborg-Bifrost Community Centre.
We had an excellent workshop in Arborg with nearly 70 small business owners participating/attending! On behalf of the Manitoba Marketing Network Board, I told our Arborg partner’s (East Interlake Community Futures, Arborg & District Chamber and Arborg Bifrost CDC) that you were very pleased with their event coordination and promotion efforts towards attracting such a large number of business owners. Our new partners are very excited to host MMN for a Gimli Roundtable event in the future. We promoted a future Gimli Roundtable event to the audience and it was well received.
It was great to answer your questions and I appreciate your comments! Thank you to the Manitoba Marketing Network for organizing this event for a very important regional business hub.
The rise of Social Media as a professional marketing toolkit has become a hot topic amongst small business people in recent months – we are doing more and more public speaking events on that topic, as well as hands on training for our clients – both in person and via webinar style coaching sessions. Strategic Social Media interaction can be a vital part of your business’s marketing mix. It doesn’t replace a well designed custom web site, with high quality content and proper search optimization. Winnipeg businesses are learning the importance and power of strategic social media use – not just for the kids anymore (if it ever was).
If your business needs some hands on coaching to help create a high impact social media strategy, or help in setting up your social media platforms, Modern Earth is here to help – affordably. Call or email us today!
