Social Media Topic for Bank Workshop
January 26, 2011
On any given day, over 375 million people use Google to search over 2.5 billion bits of information. Facebook users are more than double the population of the United States…over 600 million users and counting. Ten percent, 60 million users, update their Facebook status on any given day. It took 13 years for television to reach 50 million users, Facebook added over 200 million users in less than a year.
“Is social media the elephant in your boardroom?” asks Nate Salas, Business Banking Officer with Town & Country Bank. “As a business owner, should you be promoting your business on Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, WordPress, Foursquare, Yammer, Google Buzz, Meetup.com, Wetpaint, Flickr, YouTube, Skype, WikiAnswers, or sites that have yet to be invented?”
“Social Media is no longer a schoolchild’s fad,” he continues, “it is fast becoming the fundamental way people, around the world, choose to communicate.” “Or maybe, it already is the way the world chooses to communicate,” he adds.
“It is reported that 78% of consumers trust peer recommendations while only 14% trust advertisements,” he continues. “Business owners, who are already overworked, are now faced with the ‘should I’ or ‘shouldn’t I’ question…and if the answer is ‘should’…how will they find time to get it done?”
To explore social media and its networking capabilities, join Town & Country Bank for “Social Media: A Marketing Must!?”, a free workshop held on Thursday, February 10 from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. This, the Bank’s fourth “Build to Success” workshop, will offer business owners tips and tricks needed to help figure out the social web of tweets and blogs, as well as give attendees some ideas to help decide how to develop meaningful relationships with clients and potential clients.
Whether you are in charge of reaching out to clients from around the world or around the corner, this free workshop can help you get going. Reserve your spot at Town & Country Bank’s workshop, to be held at the Watertown Community Center located at 514 S. First Street. by calling 262.2900 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
