A-State SBTDC To Offer Social Media Marketing Seminar


JONESBORO, Ark. — Arkansas State’s Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC), the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Downtown Jonesboro Association are offering an “Introduction to Social Media Marketing Success” seminar on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 1-3 p.m. at the Delta Center for Economic Development, 319 University Loop Circle.

Instructor will be Tracie Bergman of AceOne Technologies. The seminar will help area small businesses and organizations learn how to develop an effective social media marketing plan.

“For the ASU SBTDC, social media networking sites have proven to be very effective on-line tools that have helped us connect with small businesses, find new clients, and grow our revenue stream,” said Laura Miller, SBTDC director. “The real challenge for small businesses just getting involved is to know the rules of the road for the social media networks they want to use.

“No social media network is a silver bullet that will bring you thousands of customers just because you sign up to join it. Social media such as Facebook and Twitter require time and commitment, but the return on investment can be well worth the effort.”

Cost is $35 per person, ($25 for Jonesboro Regional Chamber and DJA members, $20 for ASU faculty, staff and students). Register for this workshop by calling the ASU SBTDC (870) 972-3517 or e-mail your registration to asusbtdc@astate.edu.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Jonesboro Association, First Security Bank, First Community Bank, Focus Bank, Simmons First Bank and AceOne Technologies.
