VISALIA – If you aren’t sure why people don’t “like” your business or why it’s a good thing to have people “follow” you, it might be time to take a crash course in social media and how it can increase your business.
The COS Training Resource Center is offering a Social Media for Business boot camp on Friday, July 13 at the Visalia Campus. This single session, six-hour class will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and costs $99/person. This class is designed to allow those in the class to complete in-class assignments to promote their business pages and obtain more “likes” and “followers” by engaging target audiences. 
The Training Resource Center’s goal is to provide valuable training to Tulare and Kings county businesses, which propelled them to offer this class. The class will go over how to setup social media accounts, choosing account names, best practices, content marketing principles, analytics and more. 
One student from the January 2016 class commented that the “course was beneficial to my online business presence.” Another student from the March 2017 class commented that the class was “definitely helpful! Thank you for the tips and tricks to starting and maintaining smart, relevant, and useful social media sites!” 
This class is designed to provide a foundation for the use of social media as a marketing tool in a business environment. It will cover Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram and will touch on Google+, YouTube, Pinterest and more.
