Tapping into Resources and Developing Markets

By Portage County Business Council

Take a quick look around your place of business; really look at your customers for a moment. Is anybody using a social media outlet such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or Foursquare? You don’t think so? Don’t be so sure.

So now, as a businessperson think again, can you really say that is true? By accessing this, even you have reached out into the newest method of communication for individuals and businesses, Social Media. Is this frightening because it’s new, powerful and overwhelming? You bet it is. Does this mean that your business has to be limited in using this tool to promote the services that you have to offer? Not a chance.

Companies from across the region are tapping into resources and developing markets RIGHT NOW. Your competitor could be reaching your customer over their smart phone in your place of business as you read this. Go ahead, look around again and see if I’m lying.

So, how does your business reach those customers? First, go to the UWSP Continuing Education website to get started. It will tell you everything you need to know about the 2010 Central Wisconsin Social Media Conference – October 7, 2010 in Wausau, WI. The only all encompassing resource you will have access to this fall that can get you active in reaching customers that are beyond your reach.
