The Community Development Council will host a special seminar next week for all local businesses and entrepreneurs in Corinth and Alcorn County.
The free seminar called “Social Media 101” is set for Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at Pizza Grocery. A free lunch will be provided.
“The Community Development Council has historically had four business seminars a year covering topics of interest,” said Virginia-Boyd James, the community development director at The Alliance. “Social media marketing has become drastically more important to businesses in the last few years so we wanted to bring in someone who could teach our businesses and entrepreneurs how to market themselves better.”
James said the session will show participates how to get started using social media in order to grow business.
“From broad strategy to specific tactics, you will walk away with actionable information that will improve you business marketing,” she added.
The Alliance is inviting a social media guru to host the seminar. Kevin Adelsberger of Jackson, Tenn., owns his own marketing firm which provides services to small business that help them communicate in the world from social media to website and email marketing.
“Kevin works out of a co-working space which offers his clients a unique and progressive perspective on this ever-evolving world of social media,” said James. “We hope our local businesses are able to learn from his forward-thinking and expertise in social media so that they can acquire greater success within their businesses.”
The Alliance will also offer one community member who signs-up for the seminar via R.S.V.P. by Monday a chance to win a 1-on-1 social media consultation with Adelsberger.
