9:30 AM - “Social Media Marketing Explosion” ... Bo Cable
Do you want to increase your online influence, create raving fans & pocket more cash?
Social media is hotter than ever before - yet few know how to use it to build influence & wealth.
You NEED to learn how to use Social Media effectively!
You need to spread your message online, - SO.. the next challenge is to learn how to leverage the power of Social Media. (By leverage, we mean actually generating income - without being a pest.) The best way to do this is to create an Explosion! We’ll show you how, step by step.
Who Should Attend?
If you are a business owner of any kind, have a website, an aspiring business owner, educator, politician, religious leader, non-profit organization, or employee - then this workshop is for you. A lot of businesses make the mistake of thinking that if they don’t “sell” on the internet, then marketing on the internet is “not for them.” But did you know that 67% of internet users look ONLINE before they make a purchase... even though more than 50% of them then make that purchase in a PHYSICAL location? SO that is more than 30% of potential new business you could be missing because you don’t know this “stuff.”
Don’t get left behind!
The online marketplace is growing faster than ever before, and you can have a piece of it!
Let’s look at some monthly visitor numbers* from a few top social communities:
