Online Social Media is the latest, dynamic wave of communication, but its opportunities for communications with both clients and brides can often be confusing.

Just having a blog, being on Facebook, or tweeting, is not enough. To be effective for your business, it’s essential to understand the pros and cons of the leading social media tools and how to use them. But first, it’s necessary to set a strategy to serve your business.

This session will help you develop a goal-oriented Social Media Strategy and sort out what elements of Social Media will serve you most effectively.

Some of the key takeaways include:
* Quality blog content, and how it can supplement traditional marketing. In particular, how writing for a targeted audience can drive increased traffic to your websites. Strategy
* Exploring Social Communities such as YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and understanding how you might add them to your marketing arsenal.
* Marketing via text and SMS messaging, and how to use it, effectively.
* Reduce anxiety about the degree of difficulty of all elements of Online Social Media. Turn that anxiety into enthusiasm.
