Because of Labor Day Weekend the September meeting will be on the second Monday of September (September 9th) instead of the first monday.
With all the changes in social media over the past year or two, I am looking forward to hearing from our speaker Chris Celic. Bring your note pad and all your questions for this informative presentation. (PS, I've seen more than one presentation by Chris and he is quite knowledgeable. In addition I have recommended him to several business associates) Here is his description of his presentation:
How social does my business need to be?
Before you answer that, do you know whether your next customer will look for a photographer on Linkedin? How are your competitors using Facebook? When prospects search in Google or Pinterest, how easy is it for them to find your business? And, what might you learn from what your customers are saying online? Now, how social should your business be? And which of all these social media tools, websites and services should your business use to meet customers, recruit candidates and build relationships now that result in hires and sales later?
At our Sept. 9 meeting, youâ€™ll learn about the latest consumer behavior online and best practices for business use of social media. Come prepared to share your experiences and know-how. Our presenter will be Chris Celek, owner of Celek Media Consulting in Springboro, who helps small businesses connect with customers using social media.
Chris is an award-winning editor with more than 25 years of leadership experience at some of the nationâ€™s top newspapers and community websites. His teams created websites that grew their audience by as much as 85 percent year over year and were recognized as the best in North America.
In addition to consulting about web content and social media, blogs, e-newsletters and video with small businesses and non-profit organizations, Chris frequently speaks to business groups, and professional and trade associations to introduce social media. He is graduate of Leadership Warren County and an active member of the Rotary Club of Mason and Deerfield, New Media Dayton, Linked Dayton Metro, Social Media Columbus, and B2B networking groups in Dayton and northern Cincinnati.
