Using Social Media for Your Farm
Wednesday, February 1st, 2017; 6pm – 8pm; $5/family
It is no secret that the Internet has drastically changed how we market and sell our products. Today's customers are Internet savvy and expect more than a quality product – they also expect a level of interaction and engagement from the businesses they buy from. This workshop will provide tips and tools to help you set up your social media platforms (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) and use them strategically to expand your customer base, sell more products and generate more revenue. Kate Moody, this workshop’s instructor, is a Business Advisor with the Small Business Development Center at Jamestown Community College, where she coordinates the Social Media Marketing Certificate program. As an entrepreneur herself and a former Chamber of Commerce executive, Kate brings 15+ years of experience in small business marketing, sales and training.
This event is part of the 2016-2017 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Program is made possible through the generous support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.)
