Facebook coming to Tampa to teach social media strategy for small businesses

In today's competitive marketplace, business owners need to seize every opportunity to better serve their client base and constantly seek to improve the visibility of their brand. Social media has allowed small businesses an unprecedented opportunity to interact with their audience and strengthen customer relationships at very little cost.

Now, Tampa area organizations will have an opportunity to learn some of the best practices for social media engagement directly from the creators themselves. Facebook will be hosting a "Small Business Boost" event in Tampa on October 16. The event will take place at The Cuban Club's second floor theater, and will be co-hosted by the Greater Tampa-area Chamber of Commerce. 

"Southern Florida's small businesses are a vital part of the local economy. With the rise of social media, businesses have been able to extend their brand and their message with the click of the button, resulting in more growth and opportunities," U.S. Representative Mario Diaz-Balart told Saint Peter's Blog. "By attending this event, business owners will be able to bring their companies to speed with the latest and greatest promotion tools offered by Facebook."

According to Facebook's statistics, there are over 2 billion connections between its users and local businesses. Businesses can harness the power of these connections to improve customer perception of their brand, strengthen customer relationships and expose themselves to new audiences.

Our space provides all of the technology necessary for productive brainstorming session, including 70-inch touchscreen smartboards.
