Understanding Your Digital Landscape Seminar 11/16/2010

From the flyer, regarding the Seminar I’ll be conducting to help business owners, who are not technically enabled, to better understand what makes their business function:

Understanding the Digital Landscape

What is it?
How do you find it?
How do you use it effectively?

Computers save us time in everything from information storage and retrieval, calculation, graphic design, and report preparation. E-commerce allows our websites to keep our businesses running 24/7.

A failure at any point, from our office records to our online presence, can quickly snowball into a technological disaster, especially for a small business that doesn’t have an IT (information technology) staff in-house.

Seminar leader Curt Middlebrook, The Computer Whisperer, provides insights into the equipment, computer programs, and office and internet support services out there, and the people who provide them. You’ll learn how to maximize your online efficiency, and how to track the success of your online marketing.
This is a Lunch & Learn program, part of the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce Success in Business Series. Your registration includes detailed information for evaluating every aspect of your company’s digital landscape, as well as a light lunch.

When : Tuesday, November 16; 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Where : Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park, Room 202

Cost : $19.95 Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber Members

Mark Your Calendars! Social Media in Marketing Seminar

August 27th, 2009 at the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce, 5851 Park Blvd, Pinellas Park, FL 33781.

Walt Morey of Core Business Solutions will be presenting his seminar on the reasons you should get yourself into the digital world using social media tools (Twitter, Facebook, Plaxo, LinkedIn, blogs, etc) to market your business.

I attended his last presentation and it was an excellent discussion of why you need to become involved this way, or you’re market will leave you behind.

Details:

What kinds of Marketing methods are you currently using?
Are they effective?
Are you reaching your desired customers?

The Baby Boomer Generation is now retiring. This means fewer customers for your business unless you are trying to reach those who were born in 1964 or later (Generation X, Generation Y, the Nexters, or the Millennials.)

These younger consumers get their information about products and services from Blackberries, the Internet and TV rather than magazines, newspapers, direct mail, etc. If you want to reach them, you must learn how to use Social Media: Facebook, LinkedIn, Plaxo, and Twitter, and others.

The Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce is pleased to invite you to attend an introductory workshop on “The Use of Social Media in Marketing” on August 27th.
This workshop will be conducted by Walt Morey, Business Advisor and Owner of Core Business Solutions.

In this introductory workshop, you will learn what each of these types of Social Media is and how they are used. A small fee of $20.00 per participant covers the cost of training materials and a light lunch snack.

Please Note: Demand for this information is high and seating is limited to the first 20 individuals for this workshop so those interested need to call Donna at 727-544-4777 to register and reserve their seat.

You must be registered to attend.
