Today, Tuesday June 19th at 2 pm CST the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center network will host part 3 of our 5 part business series for Arkansas military veterans in business. All of the webinars are free of charge and available for download or to join at the Arkansas Veteran webportal. If you are a military veteran, national guardsman, reservist or family member we invite you to join us for these great “Get Started” webinars.
Why did I call this webinar Social Media Marketing – Massing Fires!? Obviously as a retired artilleryman I know the value of bringing the right ordinance to bear on the right target to achieve MAXIMUM EFFECT! Social Media, like artillery can be the King of Battle…if you know how to use it correctly. So… Here is your chance to start your basic training.
As part of an ongoing grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration to provide assistance, training and support to our state’s veterans the ASBTDC is offering a series of free 1 hour webinars on a variety of business topics. Today, Tuesday June 19th we will host our Fundamentals of Social Media Marketing webinar at 2 pm CST and will discuss the basics of online marketing as well as integrating social media into the company’s overall marketing mix.
Social media has become a significant marketing channel for many businesses over the past few years and will continue to grow in importance as more American households connect online. The greatest value of social media marketing is the ability to level the playing ground between large and small businesses in the marketing. But…like any tool it must be used correctly.
In our webinar today we discuss:
- The basics of developing a social media marketing plan,
- How to Integrate social media into the overall Online marketing,
- How to Determine the RIGHT social networks for your business,
- How to provide the RIGHT content that your target audience wants,
- And how to make the best use of limited time.
Because there are only 50 minutes to the webinar…and so much to cover… I have loaded the power point we will be using at 2 pm along with all of the links so that our veterans can read more on the different topics. Because most of the attendees to the webinar will be reading this AFTER the program at 2 pm, I hope you find the information valuable and you enjoyed the session. Please let us know how we can help you as you dive deeper into your overall marketing plans.
Don’t forget Webinar #4 will be on First Steps to E-Commerce Fundamentals and will be held Tuesday, July 10th at 2 pm CST with our final webinar Procurement Opportunities for Veteran-Owned Businesses on Tuesday, July 24th.
If you missed our first two webinars (Small Business Budgeting & Money Management and Small Business Taxes) you can access them at the Arkansas Veteran YouTube Channel.
