By popular demand, we have been asked to conduct small group training sessions on Twitter for Business.  We’re glad to announce our first class will take place Tuesday, June 9th, 2009 here in Minneapolis. Read on for more details:

Have you checked out Twitter and just can’t figure it out?

Are you looking to use Twitter, one of the fastest growing online communications platforms in recent history, to engage with your audience for tasks like: Sales, Promotion, Customer Service, Market Research, Customer Loyalty, Online Reputation Management, and establishing thought leadership?

 Are you frustrated by Social Media Boot Camps that don’t actually show you how to get started?

 Then this class is for you.

 Join us in a small group setting to learn the basics of Twitter for business and getting started on Twitter.  You can bring your laptop and you will be taught the basics.

 We’ll cover:

  1. Setting up an account
  2. Building an optimized profile
  3. Discuss background graphics and profile pictures
  4. The initiation of building followers
  5. Rules of interaction
  6. Including links
  7. Tracking and monitoring conversations
  8. Additional tools and time saving tricks

 After covering the basics we’ll cover basic business strategies that Twitter can help to optimize in your business.

 The cost to attend this class is $100.00.  This class is on a first come, first serve basis, and more classes will be opened up after each one fills.  If you’d like to reserve an entire class for six for your company, the cost is reduced to $75.00 per person.

We’ll meet in the Training Center at the offices of The Bailey Consulting Group, 4800 Olson Memorial Hwy., Suite 225, Minneapolis, MN 55422
