Workshops to focus on marketing via social media


Growing business on the web will be the focus of a trio of workshops early next week.

“The ABCs of Interactive Marketing” will be presented in a series of 1 1/2-hour presentations by radio-and-TV-specialist-turned-marketing-and-sales-professional Mike Blinder on Monday and Tuesday. The programs are free to those who register, but will cost $20 at the door for those who don’t. Registration must take place by Friday.

Presented by the Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Union-Bulletin, the workshops will explain how to leverage social networking to find and retain customers, offer tips on making sure your business is found by those searching for services and make a case for embracing the “mobile movement.”
