The first workshop will be an overview of the major social media outlets, explaining what each is, how they differ from each other, what they're used for, and how they can be used together in a coordinated way. Along with these topics, will include an overview of the new initatives of Virginia’s Growth Alliance (VGA) and a discussion on how to get your small business involved.
Topics covered in the series will include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube and more, using blogging and newsletters in coordination with social media and how to utilize the VGA’s new Shop Local website to sell online.
Virginia’s Growth Alliance is sponsoring the series as part of its “Think Bigger” initiative, partnering with Longwood Small Business Development Center, Longwood University and Glerin Business Resources to provide a unique combination of small business and entrepreneurial training that is rich in resources and strategies to encourage growth and success.
In October the series will continue with monthly workshops focusing on a different social media outlet each month.
