I’d like to invite you to register for my next Facebook workshop for small businesses. This workshop will be very different from the other Facebook workshops that I have done in the past. Normally, I show small businesses how to setup their Facebook pages, but this time, we are going to dive deeper–and “Make Your Business Stronger!” We’re going to get Your Facebook Business Page fit and healthy!

Now, this is a WORK-SHOP, so we are going to do a lot of work!

During this workshop you will learn:

> Content posting – how to post, what you should be posting and where to find great content for your business
> Uploading – photos and videos
> Boosting – why you should be boosting your posts. (I know a lot of people will tell you it is a waste of money to boost posts, but I’m going to tell you why I recommend you boost and I’ll show you some things you can do with it.)
> How to get people to like your page
> How to get people to call you directly from your page
> How to get people to book appointments directly from your page
> How to create events
> How to blog from your page
> How to get Facebook to suggest your page to people who are interested in what you offer

Some of the things I’d like you to bring with you include:

> Your Facebook email address and password (and yes, you must have a Facebook Business Page to attend)
> Know your email address password just in case you need to get in it
> A laptop
> Your mobile phone
> Photos of your products and/or your services (this of course, is optional)
> A spreadsheet of your customers or prospective customers email addresses only
> And if you want to actually boost a post right in class, you’ll need to link either a credit card or PayPal account to your Facebook Page (Boosts can cost as little as $5)

Whew! I think that’s enough! Now, go ahead and click on the registration button in this email–and I’ll see you on July 25th!

*Note: One-On-One sessions are $129 per person. Save $30 now by registering for this Group training! Only 12 seats available.

When You’re Not At Peace With A Client, Is It Okay To Walk Away?

Recently, I had a situation in which I was not at peace with the client that I was working with.

I worked with this client for about one year. The client came to me with no marketing strategy. He said he had a website and that was it. I put together an online marketing strategy for him. I designed a new website for the client, set up and managed a Facebook page, Twitter account, Google+ page, and a LinkedIn profile.

I explained to him how he needed to focus on his niche, which was in a very reputable industry – one in which he could succeed in if he followed the plan.

Without getting into all of the details, click here to see a few things this client did after we agreed on the marketing strategy >>

The Inaugural Code(Her) Conference

Romona Foster Mentioned in The Inaugural Code(Her) Conference by Sarah Jedrey

THE NEW WORD-OF-MOUTH
The Social Media Trainer and Consultant at Admin Tech Consulting, Romona Foster is a woman of many talents. Due to the laptop and projector refusing to talk to each other for a half hour, we learned that one of her talents was to memorize the name of 30 people in a few minutes. What could’ve been a dull disaster became a high-energy exchange of ideas about the role of social media and how to convince clients reluctant to change.

The room, with those 30 attendees, represented a range of experience from novice to master. The conversation we had brought home the fact that “social media” is as big and complex a subject as you could imagine. We touched on strategy, platforms, engagement, content sourcing, ethics and laws, time-savers, and stereotypes, and we still hadn’t exhausted ourselves when it was time to depart. But before we did, Romona left us with a good, actionable list of tips and tools especially useful for the less-experienced.

@AdTechConsults Mentioned in See In Colors’ Blog Post by Lisa Nelson
Just got back home from a room full of fired up women entrepreneurs! I’m talking about Spark & Hustle.

Tory Johnson is the visionary behind Spark & Hustle a national conference for business owners. I was delighted that one of the stops on the tour was local for me in Washington, DC. Here are a few highlights from this 2 day conference …

During the 2 day event, Tory strongly encouraged and reminded us to sit at a new table after each break and meet new people. I took her advice and it made all the difference in the world.

So I want to give a shout out to just a few of the many fabulous entrepreneurs I met like Tceniccola, SunshineHope, ElegantGranny, AdTechConsults, TheDesignHall, NextBrides, Heidi Pommer, Saralyn Collins, Scribbles and Works and Linda Pritchett.

Interview with The Story Exchange – Empowering Women to Start Their Own Business

ROMONA FOSTER OF ADMIN TECH CONSULTING TELLS HER STORY …

I started freelancing out of necessity. I was taking some event management classes in 2007. The program I was participating in required all students to complete a full-time internship and 160 practicum hours. In order to do this, I had to leave my full-time job as a meeting manager. I no longer had an income, so I started working on short-term projects for consultants and home-based businesses. In 2008, when I completed my internship and practicum hours, I began looking for work. The economy had taken a turn, so I was having a hard time finding a job. In the past, I never had a problem finding employment. Months of looking turned into years, so it really became pretty scary. I never really changed my mindset from looking for a job until 2012 when my passion took over …
