Learn how to spread your message during Social Media Summit and Networking Event

Social Media SummitRescheduled for March 20th

We hope to see you at this year’s Social Media Summit on Tuesday, March 20th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Isaac Taylor Garden located at 228 Craven St. Registration deadline is March 16th. Inclement weather location is the VFW Post 2514 located at 3850 Butler Rd. (off Old Cherry Point Rd.).

The Summit is an event created to bring individuals, businesses, and non-profits together in a day of learning, networking, and lunch in the Isaac Taylor Garden.

Our goal is to help you learn how to reach your audience and ultimately increase your revenue. This isn’t a technical workshop, but we will introduce you to local companies who can help you with technical issues.

We will be talking about copyright laws, websites, blogging, videos, podcasts, content marketing, analytics, branding, relationship strategies, reviews, social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, etc.), and much more!

We will also let you know how you can spread your message via traditional media (WCTI 12 and the New Bern Sun Journal) along with citizen media (City Talk, New Bern and Beyond Podcast, and The Charles Tendell Show)
