CHERRY HILL, N.J. – March 25, 2014 - Jewish Family and
Children’s Service of Southern Jersey (JFCS) invites you to attend Build Your
Brand Through Social Media, a free series of workshops, with Kim Richmond –
Richmond Marketing and Communications executive, author, speaker, and adjunct
professor at the School of Business at Rutgers University and Nadine Halevy,
Jewish Family and Children’s Service Program Manager.   These workshops are possible through a
generous grant from the Jewish Community Foundation.

            The Build
Your Personal Brand with LinkedIn, Blogging, and other online sources workshop
which will focus on the job seeker/employee, and will be held on Tuesday, April
8, from 6:30 to 9 PM.

The Build Your Business Brand
Using 7 Steps to Successful Social Networking, which will be targeted at the
business owner, and will be held on Wednesday, April 9, from 6:30 to 9 PM. Both
workshops will be held at Katz Jewish Community Center on Springdale Rd. There
is no cost to attend either seminar.

“The goal of the workshops is to
educate the community on how to use social media as a marketing tool. Social
media creates a unique buzz,” says Nadine Halevy, JFCS Program Manager. “Back
in October 2012, a total of a hundred people attended the first ever social
media workshop at the JFCS. We are pleased that we could offer not only another
workshop focused on the business owner but also a separate workshop focused on
using social media to build your personal brand. I am excited to work with Kim
Richmond and offer free workshops that can help businesses and employees
fulfill their wants and needs. Almost everyone is using some form of social
media but now everyone is using social media to brand he or herself so I think
we can all learn something from our guest speaker.”

Social media provides a great
opportunity, the ability to build relationships directly with consumers. The
two workshops will cover very relevant and important tips on using Facebook,
Twitter, and LinkedIn as well as discuss the benefits of blogging. Whether you
are a job seeker, employee, thinking of starting a business or already a
business owner, there will be something for everyone. These two workshops are
part of an ongoing effort to bring programming not found in our community at no
cost. Building your brand using social media allows you to develop new and
strengthen existing relationships, which often leads to everything from brand
awareness, loyalty and word-of-mouth marketing.
