The purpose of of Social Smarts Chat
Marc, Suzanne and Nichelle all enjoy using social media and believe it can be a great tool for dancers, dance studios, dance companies, and dance teachers to grow their businesses and their online presence. We are not social media “experts.” There won’t be any surprise invitations to join a mailing list or buy an e-book. We are consumers of social media and like most consumers, we have our own ideas and experiences regarding what is effective and not in social networking. Though these ideas will come through in our chat, our purpose is to share our methods for making informed choices when it comes to social media, marketing ideas, and forming relationships online. Much of what we’ll be talking about is just good business sense but we will also give you some online tools and know-how that will hopefully help you see beyond any internet mumbo-jumbo and serve you as you navigate online encounters with would-be business partners, consultants, or affiliations.
