CALED Sponsored- The Role of Social Media in Economic Development- A Deeper Dive into LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube

"Social media, in its broadest context, is becoming an absolute must-have set of tools for the economic development practitioner" 

Our initial webinar on Social Media was a huge success!  We seem to really have accomplished providing a training session  that was not only geared specifically to the economic development profession, but provided applied information that many have been able to implement immediately.

If you would like to order the handout materials and a recorded copy of this previous webinar (both audio and slide video), click here.

During and after that session we got lots of  requests to provide another webinar with deeper dives into the unofficial 'triumverate' od Social Media tools in economic development, namely LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.  So here it is!

This webinar is designed to deeply explore these three tools and promises to deliver focused, practical and immediately implementable ideas, suggestions and examples of how economic developers can build a strong social media strategy.

Some of the items which will be discussed in this webinar include;

  • Levels of adoption of these three tools
  • Essential elements of an effective LinkedIn profile
  • How to integrate these tools into your overall marketing and communication strategy
  • How to listen to what's being said about your community through Twitter
  • How to use these tools to drive traffic to your web site
  • Building an effective YouTube Channel
  • Which tools are best for the ecomomic developer's audience(s) of site consultants, existing businesses, community stakeholders, creative class individuals, etc.

Mark J. James, CEcD of ED Solutions, Inc. and Ben Wright of Atlas Advertising, LLC will team up once again to present this webinar.  Their past webinars for the IEDC set attendance records.  As economic developers, they approach training from a practitioner's point of view and they hold the highest regard for delivering quality webinar sessions.  And having worked projects all over the US and elsewhere, they're well-versed in what's working and what isn't.

So stop tweeting for a minute and sign up today! 



This webinar is being put on as a part of the Professional Learning Laboratory,a joint venture of dedicated professional trainers in economic development committed to the delivery of quality instruction, no commercial messages and the use of the best available technologies.
