Cary, NC, May 03, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Calvert Creative (a Calvert Holdings, Inc. company) announced today plans to conduct a seminar entitled, “What is Social Media? How Can it Move Business?” at Edge Office, LLC.
The seminar, slated for May 8 at 12:00PM, is designed to introduce businesses to social media and to begin discussions of how this new marketing may be used to move businesses. Sequential seminars are part of the overall strategy. Edge Office is hosting the event as a free learning seminar for its clients.
Edge Office, a Raleigh-based provider of professionally tailored workplace environments, works with clients to create a productive office space that fits the organization’s identity, work habits, and budget. Michael Kerr, President and Founder, stated: “We believe social media can significantly benefit our business by getting our message out. We want to include our clients and associates in learning how best to leverage these technologies and forums.”
“Many executives have noticed the upsurge in publicity about social media including recent buzz about social media in the presidential elections. Now companies are saying we need to understand social media and become participants,” reported Jeff Tippett, the Outreach Strategist for Calvert Creative’s parent company: Calvert Holdings, Inc. “Many companies have determined that being ‘dark’ in the social media realm is no longer a viable option. They have to find ways to be participants in order to manage their online branding as well as to understand their competition’s online presence.”
The seminar is designed to offer an entry-level understanding of social media and to engage businesses in collaboration about implementing social media as part of their overall strategy for online communication.
The discussions do not end at the close of the seminar. Plans are to continue the conversation on Calvert Creative’s blog. Calvert Creative is engaged in building a network of businesses that are interested in discovering ways to move businesses forward through social media.
