We’re almost ready to roll out one of the most exciting conferences ever for small businesses.
Did you know that in rural America, there are 1.2 million small businesses? I live in rural America. By choice. I’m also one of these geeky girls. It’s an exciting time for a geeky girl to be in small town America – things are changing. People are curious, they want to know things. Facebook is becoming something we all do. People are talking about twitter – they are not sure just what it is. Everyone has a cell phone. Blogs? Moms everywhere with a work at home business are blogging. The internet has become an accepted way of life.
We decided to find a way to bring some local Midwest experts to one location to show small businesses just how to roll with this new technology. You’ll learn what may or may not work for you. What are the roadblocks stopping you from exploring social media? You’ll find out. Did you know there’s money to be made just by using the cell phone? Facebook tips and tricks – coming right at you. Is all this social media worth your time and investment? We think so. Learn how to merge this new way of marketing with your old ways of doing business. Find how to use the expert knowledge you carry in your head and put it into a blog. We’ll show you how to use digital tools in new and exciting ways for your business.
There will be a panel of small business owners who are already using social media – in a relaxed atmosphere ready to answer your questions. You’ll work with and learn from presenters respected in the field for two days. There are opportunities all weekend to have conversations in the hallways and to get all of your questions answered. We’ll make sure you go home with some great ideas for social media for your business – that you can put into use Monday morning!
Mark your calendars – June 4 to June 6. Hutchinson, Kansas.
