)-- Facebook is now the most popular destination on the Web, and people spend more time on social media sites than they do with e-mail. All businesses are harnessing social media to interact with customers and prospects, and social media is powering online marketing in a way that allows entrepreneurs and small businesses to compete with bigger companies. In the next session of Experts Connection, “Social Media for Small Businesses & Solo Entrepreneurs: How to Level the Playing Field,” social media expert Neal Schaffer will share his insights, grounded in sound business practices, to explain how social media can help you compete against the big companies. The Experts Connection teleseminar is scheduled for Wednesday, December 16, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. ET (1:00 – 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (www.netshare.com).
This teleseminar will explain how to tap into social media to market your business or services. It will help you determine which social media sites will be the most beneficial, whether you need to start a weblog, how to make the most of YouTube, and how to use Twitter as part of the mix. In this 90-minute session, you will learn:
About different types of social media, including blogging, YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, and how each can help your business.
How to use a blog as a centerpiece for your social media strategy.
How professionals are monetizing their knowledge through social media with little or no upfront investment.
