Social Media Consultant, Allen Mireles, of Allen Mireles Social Media Consulting, understands how confusing social media and social networking can seem. Mireles, one of the speakers for the upcoming networking event "Social Impact: The Rise of Social Media", provides social media consulting and training for busy executives and professionals. "For a business owner who is already overworked, adding social networking or blogging responsibilities can seem overwhelming," she said. "Training helps simplify the process tremendously. Even an hour can make a difference"
Mireles and the other speakers, Christine Senack, and Leasa Maxx, are each donating an hour of social networking training for "Lunch & Learn" prizes. The social networking training will be provided during lunch at a restaurant in Levis Commons. "We want to help the prize winners become more comfortable with social networking and learn how to use it effectively as a tool for business growth," said Allen Mireles. "As a social media consultant, my job is to identify my client's business objectives and develop a social media marketing strategy that helps them engage with their customers and prospects online," she said. "That often includes coaching or training in how to use the popular social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube," she added.
According to Allen Mireles, prize winners may choose the social networking site they would prefer to focus on. "I provide training for each of the popular social networking sites and many of the tools and applications busy professionals are using to manage their social networking," she said. "Social media can be incredibly time consuming if you don't know how to use some of the management tools and haven't automated your processes," she stated. Mireles advocates building a linked system of social networking sites that can help drive traffic to the company website or blog.
"Social Impact: The Rise of Social Media" runs from 8:00-10:00 AM on Wednesday, October 14th. The event is sponsored by Levis Commons and The Toledo Free Press and will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For more information visit ShopLevisCommons.
