Social Media for Small Business - Albuquerque

UNM McKinnon Center for Management (MCM)

1922 Las Lomas Rd. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87106

One of the biggest challenges for small business owners is growing the customer base.  Learn how social media can help you do this -- without becoming an expert!

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.
Learn about alternative social media platforms, and how to define a social media voice, engage with your audience, manage content and track the effectiveness of your social media efforts.  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.
