Free Social Media Workshop

Social Media Workshop featuring Whitney Raymond

As a business owner, you wear many hats daily and have little time. Learn how you can make a big impact with social media with the time you do have in this two-hour presentation. You’ll learn what platforms make the most sense for your business, time-saving tricks, best practices, how to engage 

with others and how to gauge how well your efforts are working. There will be time for questions, discussion and everyone will leave with practical steps they can implement to improve their social media presences and practices.

The workshop will take place at Coastal Enterprises Inc. (CEI)  conference room at 30 Federal Street in Brunswick.  There is limited seating available so please sign up soon to hold your space!

The event is free and presented/sponsored by Brunswick Downtown Association, The Maine Development Foundation and People’s United Community Foundation.
