Danville to Offer Free Workshop on Social Media for Business

Business owners in Danville are invited to come attend a Town-sponsored workshop on social media. The FREE  workshop will provide a hands-on approach to launching and maintaining social media sites for business. 

The event, to be held at the Veterans Memorial Building (115 E. Prospect Avenue) on July 22, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. will offer separate break-out sections to focus on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn. 

“When the Town of Danville holds small business workshops about social media, the subject draws a broad cross-section of the town’s service businesses, retailers and restaurants,” said Jill Bergman, Economic Development Manager. “After the workshops, when we ask for feedback, we find that our small  business community is very interested in building their social media presence, but they lack the technical skills to launch their programs.”

This workshop will provide subject experts representing each aspect of social media to provide strategies for Danville businesses, and offer a step-by-step approach to creating a Facebook page or a Twitter feed, how to post pictures on Pinterest and Instagram, and how to create a professional profile on LinkedIn. 

Registrants can sign up for any or all of the separate sessions.

This workshop, one in a series of programs created by the Town of Danville to promote business success, is free to all local businesspersons who register online, at the Town of Danville website. 

For more information, or to register, go to  www.danvilleworkshop.eventbrite.com.

For information on the business workshops, contact Economic Development Manager Jill Bergman at (925) 314-3369 or jbergman@danville.ca.gov.
