Using Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube to Get Business Workshop

Pinterest and YouTube and Twitter, Oh My!
It all can get quite confusing and overwhelming. This class will help you sort out the mechanics and processes and understand the importance of each as it relates to your business.

Beyond being another platform to get noticed, Pinterest and YouTube have Search Engine Optimization juice with Google … and that means that their content gets fed into the search engines (or help the process). Helping you to aggregate yourself higher in searches provides the ability for more back links to your site (which helps your SEO and that means it’s easier for your clients and potential clients to find you on the web).

This class will cover the not-so-talked-about but oh-so-important platforms of Pinterest, YouTube and Twitter.

For each platform, we’ll cover the basics of navigation, setting up your account properly, the reason you need it for your specific business, creating the right messages, maximizing your SEO on each and cross penetration and integration of your platforms.
