America’s SBDC New Jersey at Brookdale Community College invites small business owners of Monmouth and Ocean Counties to attend a no-cost Social Media Jumpstart For Business Bootcamp on January 28th from 8:15am – 11:45am at Brookdale Community College Lincroft, NJ Campus.
Due to demand, we increased the class size for the morning session to accommodate additional entrepreneurs. If you tried registering previously and were unable, please register TODAY while seats are still available!
One of the lessons learned from events such as Superstorm Sandy is that businesses were not prepared to communicate using online resources and social media with their customers when they were unable to conduct business as usual. Digital tools, email marketing and social media provide businesses an opportunity to plan and execute communication strategies that allow for a sustainable plan to interact with their customers for the duration of a business interruption and beyond. Online communication will help protect a business’ reputation, maintain brand awareness and increase customer engagement and loyalty.
Seating is limited for this no-cost, high-impact Bootcamp. To register:
