Thank you for considering Social Media for Small Business!
My name is Ezra and I am the Meetup organizer. I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and briefly explain our goals and ambitions with this Meetup group.
I'm the President of Sore Thumb Marketing, a social media consulting agency focused on helping small business owners reach their maximum potential online. But I'm also a small business owner myself and that's where Social Media for Small Business comes in.
We are bringing small business owners together to discuss all different forms of social media and online marketing, be it Facebook and Twitter, blogging, search, or video marketing. My goal is to offer a wide range of events, from breakfasts to lectures, so that everyone can find a time and setting that works for them. We also might move away from social media from time to time to discuss things like logistics, accounting, financial planning, and other areas that every small business owner has to deal with.
There is no catch, we're not trying to sell you anything. I just want to create a community where small businesses can come to learn the latest in social media technology, share ideas, and of course, socialize and network. We do, however, ask a small $5 annual fee after you join your first event as a show of commitment and to help cover the costs of putting on these events.
Thanks once again for joining our group. I look forward to meeting you at our next event and don't ever hesitate to reach out to me via email or through the group portal.
