Local Uplift: Training on Social Media as a Local Tool

  • Riandi Photography Tacoma (map)

Join Allison Bishins Consulting for a special, one-time workshop on Using Social Media to Find Local Customers and Build Community.

The first hour is an overview training on why - and how - to use social media (Instagram and Facebook, primarily) as a LOCAL tool, even if you don't consider yourself to be a local-focused business. How do you find customers that are near you? How do you create a local support network via these online tools? The second hour will be a group discussion and exploration of challenges to finding local customers online, tackling specific issues you have, and exploring potential avenues for different kinds of businesses (e.g. hashtags, location pins).

This workshop is open to all types of business owners, advocates, entrepreneurs, non-profits, dreamers, etc. This course is not an introduction to social media, but as long as you know how to post on Instagram and Facebook, this training will be helpful!

Early bird ticket price through May 19: $30
Regular ticket price: $40
