These days it’s hard to go a day without hearing the words, “social media”. It’s usually, “Follow us on Twitter”, and “Like us on Facebook”, or “check out this viral video on You Tube”. Most folks have a love/hate experience with the whole concept. Those who are onboard use social media every day, either for personal communication and sharing or in some compactly on the job. Of course, the resisters, call their friends on their flip phones to decide when they’ll get together to watch a slide show of their latest vacation photos.

All kidding aside, if you’re in business and have not at least educated yourself on social media, well, you’re already behind. It’s no longer a question of whether you should become engaged with these communication platforms. After all, the conversation is already going on and some of the discussion could be about your business. And don’t forget about all of the benefits of utilizing these FREE medias to help promote your business and establish direct contact with your customers.

So, don’t miss out on this FREE opportunity to learn more about social media and how it relates to your business and the Leadville/Lake County community.
