Social Media Day: Saturday, June 30 and Baby Boomers Getting Schooled in Metro Detroit
Metro Detroit Experts to present Social Media & Online Video Laptop workshop for beginners and boomers
Facebook is only one of countless social media marketing and digital promotion possibilities that is turning how we market to masses on its ear.
And quite frankly, many are confused, overwhelmed and feeling like deer caught in the headlights.
That’s why Pam Perry, a 20-year public relations professional turned social media strategist and owner of Social Media PR Solutions in Farmington Hills, has made it her mission to help business owners, ministers, authors and other “expert” types get a grip on social media marketing.
She has "cracked the code" and is often called the "Queen of Online Media" - see this video http://www.youtube.com/
“Social Media Day is not a party for everyone. There are a lot of folks, especially baby boomers who are feeling lost when it comes to marketing using the internet. Their lack of technical skills makes them feel uncomfortable with the new social media – which seems to changing at a rapid speed every day,”
“It’s quite scary to them and they don’t know who to ask or who to trust to show them the right way to leverage online marketing,” said Perry.
Typically Social Media Day is an event where social media enthusiasts gather and share their tips. But, if you just want to learn the basic steps of social media and online video marketing, there has never been a place for beginners to collaborate – until this year.
Perry and her colleagues have organized a Social Media and Online Video Marketing 101 laptop workshop, Saturday, June 30, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM (ET) 32737 W 12 Mile Rd., Farmington Hills, Michigan. People can register at http://www.pamperry.org
“The explosion of social media is something you can no longer ignore – if you want to grow profits, maintain success or remain relevant.
“We are going to stand over attendees laptops and show them there is nothing to fear – and give them the confidence to get their social media swagger,” said Perry.
Baby boomers, authors, speakers, ministry leaders, coaches, non-profit professionals and service professionals will learn the basics social media and online video marketing in this easy hands-on session on Saturday, June 30. Registration is required. Go to http://www.pamperry.org
