Social Media Class Offered


Do you tweet? Are you all a "twitter" about the possibilities with social media? Many people in Bend seem to be excited about it. In fact, a Bend Chamber program on Social Media Marketing set for today is already sold out. One of the panelists, Kelly Walker says it can be a great tool for small businesses to leverage their advertising. Still there is some resistance to change: "I think some of it has to do with, to some extent, age group or experience. Some have been successful with traditional advertising. We're not saying not to do that we're saying to integrate the new technology into it so on your commercials tell your customers where they can go on Facebook and Twitter, that type of thing and tie it all together.” The Chamber says that more than 80% of online adults use social media and these "member communities" are now more popular than email. Tomorrow's panel discussion is at 7:30 am at the Cascades Theatrical Company.
