A long awaited event is coming to Southern Delaware. Thanks to Phil Woods aka @SmallBizPhil, creator of Where In Delaware and Downtown Milford, Inc. @DwnTwnMilford for bringing this type of training to Southern Delaware. In the past, Social Media training has widely taken place in the Wilmington area and some in the Lewes / Rehoboth areas.

There are a growing number of businesses in Southern Delaware, particularly in Lower Kent and western Sussex Counties, that want to know more about how Social Media can benefit them. By bringing this type of training to the area, it is hoped to get more and more of Delaware businesses accessible via Social Media and grow the steadily expanding Delaware Social Media presence into these areas. Hopefully this event will be the first of many more Social Media training opportunities throughout the area.

If you or a someone you know is confused about how to move forward with social media or if your social media efforts feel like a remote outpost rather than an attraction for your customers, then this event is for you.

In addition to discussing what social media is and isn’t, their will be a discussion of the top 5 strategic questions that should be answered before you start your social media campaigns. Additional topics will include how to deal with online threats and measuring social media success. A 60-minute presentation will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with a panel of local social media aficionados.

This event will be held on August 24th. from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Abbott’s Grill, located at 249 NE Front Street, Milford, DE. There is limited seating available so please go to http://sussexsocialmedia.eventbrite.com/ and get your FREE tickets.

Thanks to Phil Woods and Elizabeth Purcell of Downtown Milford, Inc. for setting up this event. Special thanks to 23rd. & 5th. for sponsoring and to Abbott’s Grill, our host for the evening.
