)-- Debra Dixon and Light of Gold PR to teach “Marketing Your New Business” Class for over 10 years..."Marketing Class has changed with the times in over 10 years of teaching to incorporate Digital Marketing and Social Media."
Debra Dixon, CEO and President of New York based Light of Gold PR and Marketing LLC, will be one of the featured speakers at the annual “Home Based Business Series” sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service. Ms. Dixon’s workshop, titled, “Marketing Your New Business” will be held in Atlanta, GA. on May 19th. And though Dixon now resides back in New York and has offices in Atlanta, she flies back every year to teach this Marketing Class that she loves to teach.
According to Ms. Debra Dixon, CEO and President of Light of Gold PR, “When you market your business using social media, it is important not to lose sight of the most important aspect of business: The Customer. That element has Not changed. Social media is a great marketing tool, but first and foremost sites like Twitter and Facebook are meant to be used for communication.”
“Additionally, personal branding using social media sites is becoming increasingly popular as the number of social media users continues to rise,” points out Ms. Dixon. “75% of small businesses have a profile on a social network site, and Facebook and Twitter have seen a 12% increase in the number of small businesses on their sites. Personal branding using social media is becoming a necessity especially in economic hardships.”
Attendees of the “Marketing Your New Business” workshop will be able to download a class “companion book” which will enable them to read corresponding articles written by Ms. Dixon. Light of Gold PR will also be hosting a Pre- Book Launch and the Gold Social Media Networking event in Atlanta, GA on Thursday, May 20th from 6 pm – 8:30 pm at Vino Libro Restaurant in the Glenwood park area.
