Topic: LinkedIn and Google+ Pages.
Google Plus pages are so much easier to set-up and manage than Facebook pages. And, as a huge benefit, they are part of the search engine powerhouse, Google . This session will cover examples of brand pages.
LinkedIN has been the professional network for corporations and business owners that provide business-to-business services. Company pages and tabs for carreers, services and events makes LinkedIN a great place to advertise and list your companies.
Presentations and Q & A will be posted after each event on this blog.

The next Social Media Bootcamp begins Saturday! It’s a very informative and easily understood way to learn the basics of navigating the social space on the Interwebs. “Awesome! I highly recommend it,” posted a recent graduate to our Facebook page. Session 1: March 3rd, 9 - 12 (noon) Session 2: March 10th, 9 - 12 (noon) Session 3: March 17th, 9 - 12 (noon)
Sandy Reed, as recent graducate of the bootcamp, writes:
"Relevanza’s Social Media Bootcamp is an essential class you want to attend. I learned a great deal about how my website and each social site impacts my message to the public. The sites work together—and it’s quite easy to get it all going. Soon, as instructor Birgit says, it’s one big happy party! I highly recommend this class!"
