OKMULGEE, Okla. – The Mvskoke Loan Fund is looking to help out local businesses by offering its final Business Boot Camp training, which will be teaching how to utilize social media in marketing.
Social media is becoming more accepted as a means of both personal and business communication. The notion of opting out of social media is hazardous as someone will have something to say about a business perhaps in a Yelp review or online forum. The best way to preserve that a business is presented in a positive light is to become engaged in social media by the business themselves. On a business’s own social media channels, an owner can present the message of products and services offered and provide more control of the narrative by telling their story and highlighting what the owner feels is important at that time. It could be a current special offering, a sponsored event, a satisfied client story, etc.
The Mvskoke Loan Fund is also sponsoring coffee at “Talk Local at the LOKal” each Wednesday morning for the month of June at the LOKal Restaurant in downtown Okmulgee, Okla., which is where Mvskoke Loan Fund Chief Executive Officer Christopher Coburn said Green Country Technology Center’s Small Business Services hosts its weekly networking session.
Networking events provide the opportunity for businesses to highlight what they do and for participants to learn whom in the community offers various products and services in the local economy. It also provides a forum to get to know other business owners, learn of opportunities to work together on projects, find sales leads, or learn from others experience.
“Social media classes will address basic platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook,” Coburn said. “LinkedIn especially in business is important for learning and sharing good ideas. I might even teach a class later on leadership, featuring some TED talks and other management topics.”
Social media classes explain the importance of being an active presence with social media as a key part of a business’s marketing and promotional strategy.
If you’re interested in expanding your business skills, the Mvskoke Loan Fund would like to invite you to attend its final series of Business Boot Camps for Social Media and Marketing or our Networking for Success courses.
