We had a wonderful time today presenting Facebook and Twitter for business at the Johnston Chamber of Commerce luncheon! This was a very exciting experience for both Thomas and I as Johnston natives who attended Johnston High School. We would like to extend a huge thank you for the excellent lunch provided to everyone in attendance from Mama Laconas.
The video, “Social Media Revolution,” set the mood for the presentation with several mind-blowing social media statistics. We enjoyed teaching the importance of Facebook for business, and Twitter for business. We also discussed ways to avoid the “time suck” that social media can sometimes play on companies that do not have enough time each day to worry about their social media presence and ways to combat the “time suck.” It is always fun to teach the meaning of a #hashtag and how much difference one little hashtag can make on the effectiveness of a Tweet. Finally, we walked everyone through a step-by-step guide Facebook advertising.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to support the Johnston Chamber of Commerce and to learn how they can use Facebook and Twitter to expand their reach and become apart of the social media revolution!
