You're Invited to the Kansas City Social Media Breakfast in August



In my experience with hundreds of students, the
number one reason they don't achieve success
faster is because they're unfocused and confused.

They bounce around from one event or course to the next learning opportunity  
never giving any of them a chance to really work.
They always feel like the ONE piece of information
that's missing is at the next learning opportunity.

Sound like anyone you know?

Here's the good news, mastering social media isn't
that hard. It isn't brain surgery. All you need to
do is focus on one strategy and give that one
strategy your full attention and devotion and you'll
finally see the returns.

This month’s social media breakfast we’ll feature Gail Keller. We’ll help create a social media strategy for her business right here in Kansas City. You may have heard of http://www.gailsscoop.com/ . It is a newsletter developed by Gail Keller.

Gail will present her social media obstacles. As a group, we’ll work on a plan to help Gail overcome her obstacles. Obstacles she looking to overcome are:
1) Should she use social media to promote her newsletter
2) How can she create traffic to her newsletter
3) How can she use social media effectively without wasting time
4) How can she use social media to network

Gail is looking to generate a revenue from her newsletter by creating readers. Gail is interested in promoting her newsletter.  

Does this sound like you?
Do you have a business that you are looking to promote?
How about more traffic to your website?
Would you benefit from communicating and networking on social media?
