Rushville Republican

---- — Does your business want to “Jump on the Social Media Bandwagon”, but you are wondering where to start? Well, help is on the way! In response to numerous requests, the Economic & Community Development Corporation and the Rush County Chamber of Commerce have partnered with the East Central Small Business Development Center to offer “Social Media 101 – Where Do I Start?”

It is tempting to jump in and start a blog, Facebook page or Twitter account, but we know your marketing will be more successful if you start with the basics. Before starting on a social media campaign, you need to know what social media actually is and how others use it on a daily basis. This training will take a look at how social media is used in the business world and will go through the basics of each social media platform. It will be presented by Chris Wilkey, founder and CEO of Hosskey Consulting. Chris has worked with many companies and helped them create communities online.

Space is limited so be sure to register soon for this event that will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Nov. 14, at the Chamber office, 315 N. Main. Cost is $30 per person; $25 if ECDC or Chamber member.
