MADISON, Maine - On Saturday, May 5, Nancy Marshall Communications Account Executive Greg Glynn provided a 45-minute social media seminar to business leaders and guests at the Madison Business Showcase, hosted by the Madison Business Alliance at the Madison Junior High School.
Greg Glynn from Nancy Marshall Communications presented a social media seminar as part of the Madison Business Showcase on May 5.
Tailored specifically for small businesses, the presentation focused on the best ways to leverage social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and others. As part of the seminar he emphasized the importance of a strong social media strategy based on key goals and objectives and provided tactics to better engage with customers and gain new ones. During the presentation he also provided tips for content management and staffing. Following the seminar, all attendees had the opportunity to ask questions.
"As I told the audience, one of the biggest keys for any business using social media is to create a strategy and plan, you need to have an idea of where you're going before you put the keys in the ignition," said Greg Glynn, account executive at Nancy Marshall Communications. "Setting up a content management plan and assigning the right staff to monitor your social media efforts is so important in making sure the social media websites you decide to use provide an accurate reflection of your brand."
