Social Media Workshop

We hosted our first information workshop and this one covered Social Media and how to add it to your marketing plan. Students from PTHS and Career and Community Services Coordinator, Betsy Westergreen explained to the group the different social media platforms and what they are used for. Cat then lead a round table discussion on how to apply these platforms to marketing their businesses. So, many experiences and ideas were shared and we look forward to setting the date on a follow-up.
