Social Media for Small Business - Albuquerque

UNM McKinnon Center for Mgmt., Mktg. Lab (Rm 2010)

1922 Las Lomas, NE
Albuquerque, NM 87106

In today’s rapidly-evolving media landscape, social media has become a fundamental tool for small businesses looking to efficiently and effectively connect with existing and potential customers.

The primary focus of this workshop will be on understanding alternative social media platforms, defining a social media voice on these platforms, engaging with your audience, managing content and tracking the effectiveness of your social media efforts. You are highly encouraged to bring a laptop to the workshop as you will have the opportunity to explore these topics through hands-on activities, including setting up business profiles on each network.

Participants should have a basic understanding of the most widely used social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but experience using social media for business purposes is not required.
