LET’S GET BACK TO BASICS.

We’ve all seen the Instagram accounts with 10k followers, 100k followers, even a million followers. it can be discouraging to contemplate building a social media presence when you’re starting at 100 followers…or maybe even fewer.

Can you relate?

Our focus for this workshop is going to be on building a LOYAL {and often, LOCAL} following and engaging with those followers to lay the foundation for a solid social media strategy for your business.

This workshop is for you if you are a female brand who wants to learn about:

Choosing your social channels
Completing your profile(s)
Developing a cohesive aesthetic
Finding your brand voice
Following other businesses, brands and prospects
Making the most of your mentions: repost with purpose
Choosing and using hashtags effectively
Interacting with your following
Promoting your social channels

The follow-up to this workshop will be 10/17/2019 from 6-9pm at Espresso Yourself Coffee & Cafe.
