Social Media Basics for Restaurants and Bars - seminar (Portland, Oregon)

A great 'beginning' seminar to cover the basics of social media for bars and restaurants. For new or existing locations Nov. 17th at 10am or 2pm.

This seminar is for you if:

* You own or run a bar or restaurant.
* You know you need to get on the social media bandwagon to market your location more successfully.
* You've heard about tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and LinkedIn.
* You're limited in terms of time, tech skills, and money.

In one hour, you'll learn:

* How social media differs from "traditional" marketing.
* What options are available to you in Portland.
* What to do about the social media tools you can control.
* What to do about the tools you can't control.
* How to post, what to post, and who should post.

And most importantly, how to make it all work together in just 10 minutes per day...if that's all you've got.

Presented by local hospitality social media manager Jennifer Hancox and NTN Buzztime's Brandon Hull.

Tickets are $20 if purchased in advance online, or $35 at the door.
