Social Media Managers Series
An option for further training in Social Media Management is being offered by Jo(e) Social Media the weekend of Small Business week. Not the kind of course where presenters tell you stories of success, you get excited and then go home and get frustrated because you didn't learn how to replicate the success. This is a hands-on workshop with only 10 seats available where you'll learn exactly how to maximize social media for your unique needs. Grant funding is available.
