Los Angeles Web Marketing Series sponsored by SMARTY kicks off with a workshop on social media marketing strategy on Sunday, May 31, 2009 at Temple Emmanuel Beverly Hills
SANTA BARBARA, CA- Whether it’s blogs, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, social platforms are doing more than driving buzz; they are driving purchasing decisions. As social networks grow, their power to shape consumer conversations and amplify word-of-mouth chatter is on the rise. Web marketing expert Lorrie Thomas is kick-starting a series of Sunday SMARTY workshops to teach women in business the breadth and depth of social media best practices as a low-cost marketing tool so they understand how to use these popular platforms as a way to gain a competitive edge.
Effective use of online social media tools can compel target markets to directly respond to your products and services. This workshop will guide women to understand and use ways to build a “powerful voice” in order to distinguish themselves in the current online environment of myriad voices; it will show how to use blogs to maximize relationship-building with potential and existing clients; teach how to use tools like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter together in order to maximize social media savvy; and coach through the techy-how to’s to have social media work on autopilot!
“In these challenging economic times, it’s critical for women to use out-of-the-box thinking to boost the visibility of their products and services,” said Thomas, who recently launched Web Marketing Therapy to help people learn how to restore their marketing health through online training and educational empowerment. “The power of the social media offers many low-cost/no-cost/DIY marketing opportunities for women to build awareness in their potential marketplace while creating robust relationships and building credibility for SELLING the heck out of their products and services.”
Social media marketing is one of the most powerful marketing mediums available to women in business today. Education on how to use this medium is in great demand. To empower their women in business, SMARTY has created dynamic and powerful series of workshops by partnering with online marketing veteran and Marketing Therapist Lorrie Thomas, a self-proclaimed “wild web woman” and principal of an all female marketing agency, Web Marketing Therapy.
