Getting Social: Small Business. Big Presence.

NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI  The Hive RI presents Joann Lefebvre, Shift 2 Inbound Marketing on Thursday, March 5, 2015 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm @ The Hive RI.

Business in the 21st century has evolved considerably. We have always been social beings able to spread news rapidly but now we find ourselves capable of sharing with others near and far via a new platform, social media.

Leave the ‘Lunch and Learn’ satiated and knowing:

  • Tools to minimize the time you spend on social media
  • How to target people who want to hear your message and not waste $
  • Which platforms to focus on, and which to ignore
  • How Paid – Earned – Owned advertising work together
  • What you need to know to start building or outsourcing your social network
  • How to learn what people are saying about your business or your competitors

JoAnn Lefebvre is regarded as an expert in her industry. She has a no nonsense approach that makes complicated social media marketing easy to understand and implement for busy local business owners and their staff. Joann founded Shift 2 Inbound Marketing in 2010 and has created and optimized social networks for local businesses, including marketing and web design agencies. JoAnn is a Community Manager for select clients.
