We ran a workshop with Admin House to show local business owners the importance of using the internet as an advertising platform, because engaging with your customers online, using social networks like Twitter and Facebook, is a good way of attracting and sustaining your potential business cliental.
I have recently started an internship with Direct-Assist where I am experiencing a completely new world of online opportunities, I’m learning many new things in many new places. I video recorded the workshop and am eager to start editing to get the word out there. I am dying to show you the impact of social media on small businesses.
Admin House, Lizelle Coombs and Kwikwap, introduced the workshop to our smiling, enthusiastic and engaging audience. She captivated us all as she grasped the concept of your business growth and success regarding online presence, your business website and interaction with customers.
I was extremely surprised at the response of the attendants, as I imagined tough and uptight business owner’s. We were rewarded with a warm, comfortable and relaxed crowd and they participated very well. I remember just after Romany had explained the benefits of using Facebook, for that fast and easy customer connection, her phone died and one member immediately resourced our Direct Assist fan page where he found the ‘Tool of the Week: ‘ tip I had posted earlier regarding mobile hidden battery power and battery backup. This generated an open and inviting atmosphere, as others started to freely ask questions and voice their opinions.
Business cards were exchanged and this was my first time experiencing that drive for business, with accepting business cards, opportunities and ideas. Members willingly provided feedback on the success of the workshop, agreeing that social networking and advertising was crucial in captivating their customers’ wants and needs. The workshop gave me the motivational boost I needed and also opened my overall insight, I walked away feeling inspired and I write here before you, still feeling inspired.
