Bay Area Social Media Mastermind + LinkedIn Marketing Secrets for Small Business

Here's what we'll do:

*LinkedIn Marketing Secrets for Small Businesses

If you are like most people on LinkedIn, you joined to build and maintain your career network so it would be handy when you needed to look for a new job. But if you are a small business owner, LinkedIn is for more than building a network and finding a job. It is a powerful social media marketing tool and a great way for small businesses to gain an advantage over their larger competitors. And it’s FREE.

LinkedIn has over 200 million members. But how can you reach the ones that matter to your business?

In this presentation you’ll learn how to:

• Make the most of your personal profile (and turn off notifications so you’re not spamming people while you update it)

• Find more connections and make sure you have their current information

• Set up your company page and take advantage of all it can do

• Use LinkedIn Groups to learn what your customers want and answer their questions

Chris Conner is the owner of Words 2 Wow. He provides copywriting, message development and content strategy to help businesses differentiate themselves from their competitors and win the battle for scarce attention.

**Mastermind Discussion
Bring your toughest social media challenges! Come prepared to state your problems for two minutes, then get feedback and helpful ideas from the rest of the group to help solve them.

There will be wifi, water, and coffee available compliments of Laptop Lounge. We’ll have wifi login instructions for you when you arrive.

This event is $10 prepay, $20 at the door.

If you have questions or comments, please contact me.
