Session 1 (9:00am – 10:30am) – How to Use Instagram to Grow Your Business There are over one billion monthly, active users on Instagram. One billion! That is a big number and puts it behind Facebook, but ahead of all other social network sites. In this seminar, you will learn top strategies that businesses and entrepreneurs are using today that will help you grow your Instagram followers and take your audience engagement to the next level! Learn the BEST types of photos, videos, and content to post, as well as additional tips and strategies to make you look like a pro!

Session 2 (10:45am -12:00pm) – Connect & Engage for Loyal Followers & Friends If we as business owners forget the basics of engagement and are always selling instead of making real human connections, our audience will stop listening. This session will cover ways to connect with your audience that will improve your site’s engagement and keep your followers following. And since engagement is one of the metrics social media evaluates, it also determines whether your content shows up in your followers' feeds. Working hard to shape an audience that engages will lead to more loyal followers… and more sales!

Session 3 (1:00pm – 2:30pm) – Create a Winning Social Media Strategy As an entrepreneur, you may be asking yourself which social media platforms are best for you and what you need to prioritize to bring real results? The lack of clarity and structure gets in the way of your success, and you may be struggling with creating a campaign that works. In this workshop, we’ll dive deeper into your target audience’s pain points and buyer personas as well as discuss the key areas to focus on in social media for maximum results. We’ll talk about content planning, finding the right platform for your niche, and the role of storytelling. You’ll walk away with an action plan to start implementing a strategy that works for your business!

Session 4 (2:45pm – 4:00pm) – Get Started with Small Business Video Marketing YouTube is the number two search engine in the world, and video is one of the best ways to promote your small business. But what if you're uncomfortable in front of the camera? This program will show you the many different ways to promote your business no matter your skill or comfort level. You'll learn to create interesting and shareable videos from your smartphone, how to light your videos, the importance of good sound (and how to get it), the ideal video length, and how to come up with ideas for video content. Learn how to effectively communicate with customers, create educational courses, and entertain. You’ll get ideas on simple concepts that work, as well as the tools and technology recommended for dynamite productions on a firecracker budget.
