May 12   Lunch and Learn Series: How to Win at Email Marketing and Facebook Advertising
Email marketing boosts repeat business, creates and increases awareness, and drives revenue and profit. A huge majority of U.S. adults prefer to receive promotional emails from companies they do business with. And about 7 out of 10 U.S. adults have made purchases influenced by a company’s email. When it comes to communicating your offer, it is a very influential medium.

At the same time, many businesses and consumers are also turning to social media, especially Facebook, to seek and share information. In fact, 49% of consumers have liked a business’ Facebook page to get regular updates.

Combining the power of these two tools – email and Facebook– can amplify your marketing messages. And when you amplify your marketing with Facebook advertising, you can drive results for your business: get more eyes on your email, boost your open rate, and get in front of a new targeted audience that has similar characteristics and interests of your current audience.

This seminar will help attendees master the best practices of email marketing and Facebook marketing and how to take their marketing to the next level with Facebook ads. You’ll learn:
  • How to create a great email
  • How to market on Facebook the right way
  • The benefits of using Facebook advertising
  • How to boost your email marketing with a Facebook ad
The Lunch and Learn Series is a monthly workshop conducted by local business experts, Chamber board members and associates of our Chamber partners. The workshops feature a wide variety of topics that are helpful for anyone involved with a business, from owners and managers to entry-level employees.

Held monthly attendees will hear about specific topics of interest like:  finance, customer service, social media and many more areas of interest.  As the topics and presenters are set information on the presentation will be loaded onto the website.

This is an opportunity to meet other business people in a way that is different from any networking opportunity you may have experienced.
