Upcoming Social Media Breakfast

SMBME 61 – Internet Marketing in 2015

New Year. New Opportunities.

Here we go… another new year. Let’s start it off right and go over some of our most powerful tools as businesses and marketers. Let’s take a good look at what websites are doing in 2015, what Twitter has to offer to businesses and how Facebook can help us get our message to the right people.

We have invited Emily Brackett from Visible Logic to share the most critical elements of a successful web site. Rich Brooks, from flyte new media, is going to talk about how businesses can be using Twitter better for their business. Our case study is Sgt. Andrew Hutchings, from the Portland Police Department. He’ll talk about how the department has been using Facebook to connect with the community.
