Social Media Webinar
When it comes to social media, communities have two choices: Learn how to use this powerful communications tool - or get "abused" by it. It’s time to take your community’s message into your own hands and social media is the way to do it.
A one-hour webinar session by the Michigan Municipal League will give you the tools you need to create a successful online media campaign. We’ll talk about Facebook, Twitter and up-and-coming tools such as Foursquare and Gowalla., You’ll also learn how to get the most out of social media within the many time and financial constraints facing municipalities.
Hear how Michigan communities just like yours are already using social media to change perceptions and promote the assets of their community. Registration available soon, click here!
