Upcoming Social Media for Business Workshop

I am so excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a one-day course, “Social Media for Business,” next month! It is a personal goal of mine to get into teaching and more workshop facilitation in the future, and I can’t wait to share some tips with people in Prince George on April 25, and help businesses unlock some of the power of social media. And, I’m so proud to be teaching this at my (first) alma mater, UNBC!

My course is through UNBC Continuing Studies and will be a packed day full of social media marketing goodness! I hope that participants will come out of the day with a good grasp on what tools are right for them, and the beginnings of a social media marketing strategy for their own business.

Here’s what participants will learn:

  • What social media platforms and tools are available and right for your business
  • The importance of pre-planning (policies, guidelines and risk assessments)
  • How to develop a social media strategy that aligns with your business goals
  • How to develop content and tell your story
  • Ideas to connect with customers and create online conversations
  • The importance of monitoring and measuring social media efforts
  • How to create social media marketing campaigns
  • Best practices, online etiquette and other considerations

Join me! And please help spread the word about this course. Prince George is a fantastic city and it’s so important that we help our local businesses thrive as best as they can!

Register for the course on the UNBC Continuing Studies site. And if you have things you’d love to see in this course, let me know in the comments below!

Skiing and snowboarding near Prince George

Powder KingTo live in Prince George, you have to like winter. And not just like – as in tolerate – but you have to look forward to it, at least a bit. Luckily for us, our northern BC climate allows for a huge array of fantastic winter activities that we actually get excited about once the snow starts to fly – and skiing & snowboarding are absolutely two of those activities that cause people to start itching for the local hills every winter.

Best parks in Prince George in fall

When October arrives in the north, I’ve said my goodbyes to summer and am ready and waiting for fall to arrive with its usual burst of colour and crisp, clean air. Prince George is a city that celebrates four distinct seasons and this year has been no exception with fall’s flourish of red, yellow and orange foliage and deep blue skies on most days.
