Are you taking full advantage of social media to drive your business goals? With popular platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, and others constantly evolving, forming a strategy that fits your organization can be overwhelming. What platforms should you be on? How can you use those platforms to engage your audience? What does the future of social media look like?
We answer all of these questions and more at @Midwest, Central Illinois’ Social Media Conference!
Now in its fourth year, @Midwest will be returning to Bloomington-Normal on September 11 and 12. Learn practical applications and advanced strategies to make social media work for your business or organization.
