DISCUSSION: Are You A Business Owner Who Wants To Know More About Social Media?

You've got questions, we've got several free resources that you can use and we'll even show you how to use them. And, we've set a date for that to happen!

and - Patch aren't just about making news; we're about making your life ridiculously easy.

So we're hosting a Patch business forum for Thurs., Feb. 2 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at Mount Pleasant Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive.

It is free and open to the public.

Denise Lockwood, editor of the Caledonia Patch, and Heather Asiyanbi, editor of the Mt. Pleasant-Sturtevant Patch, are hosting a forum for local business owners to learn more about the Patch sites, how to use those sites to help grow their businesses, and how to use social media more effectively for the same goal.

We share knowledge, act as a platform for experts and connect people. And with that idea in mind, there are a ton of opportunities for business owners to use Patch along with social media. So we thought I’d offer up a short "how-to" on how you can use our free directory listings and event tools, then use them to create conversations on social media.

If you are interested or even a bit intrigued, shoot us an email at denise.lockwood@patch.com or at heather.asiyanbi@patch.com.

How and where would this take place? Online or some other location. In a couple weeks things will really start getting busy. We'll be starting onion seed and other vegetable seed in the greenhouse.

I would have loved to attend but will be unable to, if you get a good turnout will you hold more?
Denise Lockwood January 27, 2012 at 04:37 AM
@Carrie -- if you want, I'll meet with you one on one. I'm thinking of just posting a few times where I'll be at Mocha Lisa's on Douglas Ave. and people can drop in if they'd like. But their hours are usually until 5 p.m. If that doesn't work for you, let me know. My email is denise.lockwood@patch.com
