Social Media Webinar
January 13, 2011

social mediaWhen 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.

  • Use the latest social media tools to inform your residents about the good things happening in your city, village or urban township.

  •  Stop replying on your local newspaper, radio station or TV news to tell residents about the recent recognition received by a staff member or the union contract amicably negotiated.

  • Combat the naysayers and tackle the rumors before they spread like an Internet virus.

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!
