Social Media Workshop - Speed Dating Style! Social Media Breakfast Maine

Social Media Workshop - Speed Dating Style! Social Media Breakfast Maine

For August's SMBME we will be mixing things up a bit and doing a speed dating style social media workshop! We will be bringing in a slew of experts to talk to you and answer questions and concerns about a range of topics inside of social media. The experts will travel around the breakfast tables so you will be able to hear from and interact with each one from the comfort of your seat.

How can you best take advantage of this opportunity?

  • Have questions ready when you arrive.
  • Bring your laptop if you have one so you can show someone what your issue may be.
  • Keep an open mind. You never know who will give you your next great idea!
  • Bring business cards so you can easily follow up with someone.

This will NOT be a sales pitch from the experts.

I am a huge fan of a great deal as most of you already know and think that paying retail for anything, especially for food, fitness & entertainment is completely unnecessary.

I found the 2nd Quarter information quite interesting because it’s interesting to see what deals Americans’ are obsessed with, as well as the trends in the marketplace.
