Upcoming Social Media Workshops


Wednesday, May 9: How to Generate Business Leads from Your Website

Speaker: Thomas Petty, Digital Marketing Trainer,
You work hard for your business to make sure it delivers for your customers. Your website is the center of all marketing efforts, and should communicate how you serve your customers. Unfortunately, most websites actually turn business away because of three fundamental mistakes most business owners make. During this workshop we’ll show you how to make sure your potential customers find you, engage with you, and only do business with you and not your competitors. Registrants can submit their website to Thomas Petty for possible selection for mini-review during class. 6-7:30pm, Library Homework Center.

Admission is free but registration is requested.


Wednesday, June 13: Present by Yelp about Yelp: How to Market Yourself on Yelp and Drive 5x More Customer Leads

Speaker: Matt Donzella, Yelp Local Business Manager
We will go over ways that business owners can set up a strong page on Yelp and how to drive more customers to their page and ultimately their business. We’ll cover best ways to generate reviews without “asking” for them, including tools built within the site and things they can do with their own websites, storefronts, biz cards etc. Best practices for handling reviews will also be discussed. 6-7:30pm, Lafayette Library Community Hall (corner 1st & Mt. Diablo).

Admission is free but registration is requested.
