 SCORE sponsors free Social Media seminar on Dec. 12th

An announcement from BPW member, Janice Hand:

On December 12, discover the best ways of “Being Social on Social Media,” with Karoline Rose of KRose Marketing and Consulting!

When: Thursday, Dec. 12th, Noon-1pm
Where: Bozeman Public Library
Cost: Free!

Long gone are the days that marketing could be accomplished with nothing but a flyer, a pamphlet, or a billboard. Especially in Montana’s wide-open spaces, digital marketing is a make-or-break proposition. So cut back on the mailers, save some trees, and learn about connecting to your customers online. Join Karoline on Dec. 12th for a free seminar that will help you improve your social media presence and engagement!
