Social media spring training in April
Social media training series Series coming to Jaffrey in April! Presented by Christine Halvorson, Halvorson New Media Social Media Spring Training is a 3-part series of workshops designed to help small business owners and nonprofits get started using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and video marketing. The series runs over three consecutive weeks at the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce offices, April 10, 17 and 24, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Participants can take one, two or all three workshops. Cost is $120 for three, $90 for two, and $50 for one workshop. Each class is limited to 10 participants and early registration is encouraged. No need to be a Chamber of Commerce member to attend. Christine Halvorson of Halvorson New Media, presenter, encourages participants to bring their laptops for hands-on learning. Since Facebook is the number one social media site for businesses, showing no signs of waning, it is the focus of the first two workshops--Beginner and Advanced Facebook for Business. The third workshop will explain 1) Twitter, providing enough information for the participant to decide whether to use this site or not; 2) using LinkedIn for personal branding; and 3) a brief look at producing and uploading videos online. To register, visit: http://socialmediajaffrey.eventbrite.com or call 603-203-0593 Credit cards accepted. Participants will receive take-home worksheets, an online version of the presentations for review, and a discount to attend an advanced workshop in the area in May. Halvorson has taught social media skills and strategies to businesses of all types over the past 10 years. She also creates original social media content for an array of clients including Monadnock Community Hospital, the Bond Wellness Center and the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center. With a background in public relations and journalism, Halvorson keeps these workshops grounded in practicalities rather than techno-babble and jargon, and she encourages anyone with a business and a computer to give social media marketing a try.
