Are you a small-business owner just getting your gig off the ground? Or have you been at this game a while and need some practical tips around using social media and cloud computing to up your game?
Come to this FREE class led by Katherine Gray, a ten-year veteran of online marketing and social media maven. At this session, we will offer practical tips, advice, and instruction on some of our favorite free online and social media solutions that help small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.
You'll come away understanding what is all the excitement about Twitter and Kirtsy and how you can use these tools to connect with customers and get the word out about your business.
You'll also get an introduction to Microsoft Office Live, its cloud computing capabilities including project and team management tools. You'll also get a demo of the Office Live website template design tool that enables you to create a free website without having design or coding experience.
Have you already had success using the Internet for your small business? We'd love to hear your stories! Come to this event and network with colleagues and share your skills and experiences.
Be sure to bring your business cards so you can enter the raffle for Microsoft Office Small Business software ($449.95 value).
What you need to bring:
1) A laptop if you have one (not required)
2) Note-taking tools (pen and paper are fine)
3) Business cards for the raffle drawing
4) Enthusiasm and the spirit to share your experiences with other entrepreneurs
