 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

 Social Media Workshop

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

 On June 28th, 2012, the Young Professionals Network (YPN) of Miami conducted a social media workshop for small business owners. Presented by C-Payne, author of the Millionaire Marketing Blog and CMO of GraphicDesignWars.com. The workshop was designed to give pragmatic, ready-to-use techniques to entrepreneurs and new businesses looking to implement a cost-effective marketing strategy. Exploring a wide range of topics such as how to conduct market research, generating leads instantaneously, and efficiently managing time, a myriad of information was presented to help attendees at all levels of social media adoption.

Those in attendance learned how to utilize LinkedIn to grow an email contact list and build a stronger online reputation through recommendations. They also learned how to find prospective customers on Twitter who are actively seeking their products and services. Blogging was also explained to help reinforce the importance of thought leadership in any given industry.

In total, this event was a small business crash-course in utilizing online techniques to find and attract new customers. It was yet another professional development workshop  to YPN’s ongoing efforts to educate and help its entrepreneurs succeed in business.

Once again, thank you ALL for sharing your knowledge.

A brand is no longer what we tell the consumer it is – it is what consumers tell each other it is.”

 – Scott Cook, Co-Founder of Intuit
