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.
Why Are People Posting On My Facebook Page?
“I saw some things on Facebook. I’m so confused about my Facebook. I don’t know how to use it, how to look at it. I get all these photos from all these different people. How do they get on my Facebook? There’s just all this trash. It’s just unbelievable. They go on and on about who and what’s happening in their lives. I’m confused if I’m looking at the wrong page or if this is it. Please advise me more!”
No, this is not a scene from the movie, The Sixth Sense. It is actually from an email that I received from a social media client that is new to Facebook. I can assure you, this client is not seeing ghosts nor is she alone in expressing these concerns. Read why she was freaking out >>
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.

Women Entrepreneurs Rock It At SPARK DC
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.
ENGAGEMENT > PLATFORM: FOCUSING ON STRATEGY AND ENGAGMENT
Is your brand on Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and … any others that have cropped up since you started reading that list? Are you building connections with friends, fans, followers and pinners? Creating conversations in groups, chats, pages and circles? Trying to keep up with all of the platforms in the social sphere can be intimidating and overwhelming. Fortunately for your brand (and your sanity), you don’t have to do it all. You just have to do it right. We’ve grown past the somewhat compulsive “New platform? We must create an account! We must be everywhere!” phase. The focus is now on effectively leveraging the platforms that are the best fit for your brand and your audience. This can mean anything from growing and revamping existing accounts to adopting or experimenting with new platforms that fit your brand’s content strategy and reach your target audiences. Social Media Week Washington DC tackles this trend with both platform and engagement-specific events, to help you move past the need to be everywhere, and hone in on choosing the best platforms for your brand and making the most of them with a strong social media strategy. Events geared towards leveraging specific platforms, such as “Social storytelling Q+A with Tumblr” and [Romona Foster’s] “Discover the Power of Twitter Tweet-A-Thon-Style” can help your brand tell its story powerfully and effectively using specific platforms.
