Social Marketing with MarketMeSuite

Thursday, 03/26/2015 8:00 am
MicroKnowledge Computer Training, 21 British American Boulevard, Latham, NY 12110
Details | Event Website

Social media marketing has evolved rapidly over the last couple of years. Facebook flatly stated that Company Pages will get far less visibility unless they start using Facebook’s paid advertising. If your organization is using Facebook, have you noticed that the reach of your posts has dramatically decreased over the last 9-12 months? Facebook is intentionally doing this to drive businesses to pay for its advertising services.

So, what is working in social marketing today?

In this workshop, we will show you how a social media management platform such as MarketMeSuite changes social marketing with insight, tips and strategies to improve your social marketing.

In a live demonstration of MarketMeSuite, you will see how this platform gives you valuable new capabilities which are not available on the native social platforms.

In this workshop we will cover:

  1. How to manage social content overload and filter for the stuff that really matters.
  2. Identify potential leads, engaging and keeping track of these real conversations.
  3. Determine which social platforms work for you, which metrics matter and how to track them.
  4. How scheduling social posts lets you find the best time for your audience.
  5. See exactly where the people you are interacting with are physically located.
  6. Learn tools to share the social workload within your team.

MicroKnowledge is teaming with Endorphin Advisors and MarketMeSuite to present this valuable marketing seminar.

This workshop is ideal for the following people:

  1. Small business owners
  2. Entrepreneurs
  3. Not-for-profit employees
  4. Marketing professionals
  5. Anyone interested in learning more about social marketing

Materials Provided in Workshop:

All attendees will receive:

  1. Copy of Presentation
  2. Guide to Getting Started with MarketMeSuite

First Monday Electronics

Monday, 04/06/2015 7:00 pm
The Foundry, 298 Northampton Street, Buffalo, NY 14208
Details | Event Website

This will be a meetup for anyone interested in electronic circuits, microcontrollers, and learning more about how electronic things work. It will be held the first Monday of each month.

If you already have a laptop and an Arduino (or compatible microcontroller), bring them and we will find things for you to learn. I'll help explain, too, but the best way to learn is to do.

If you don't understand what I just said about an ada-whosie-whatsit, show up and I can show you what a microcontroller is, how circuits work, and how to make things blink!

Here's the best part... To force myself to stay on top of this event, at the end of the night, we will group-think assignments for people that want to go further. This means every month you show up, you get to help decide the topics for the next month. Then at the next meetup, everyone who took on an assignment can show it off (and maybe even explain the circuit/code/build process).
