Conference: Social Media Marketing Made Easy

April 12 - April 14


A panel of ten social media and digital marketing experts are pleased to announce an upcoming event for business owners and entrepreneurs. The two-day workshop, Social Media Marketing Made Easy, aims to empower small businesses seeking to enhance their social media and digital marketing strategies.

Digital marketing topics will include Facebook, Instagram, Etsy, YouTube, email marketing, Messenger bots, Google, search engine optimization and websites. Two speakers will also offer advice on media pitches, establishing expertise, and small business resources. The event will kick off with keynote speaker Carrie Wilkerson, an international speaker and acclaimed author, as well as 9 other experts in the field of social media marketing. Additional information about all ten speakers can be found on the event website

Business owners will leave the workshop with the knowledge to create and implement strategies to generate brand awareness, as well as, increasing both web traffic and sales. “Social media is a powerful tool for attracting new customers and repeat business. Many social media training programs take months to complete and experimenting with digital ads using trial and error can be very expensive with little ROI”, said Melanie Diehl, a digital marketing strategist who will be leading a session on Google and SEO. “We know business owners don’t have time for these options so we wanted to offer this affordable and efficient solution to empower business owners.”

Social Media Marketing Made Easy will take place from April 12-April 14, 2019 at Norfolk’s Granby Theater and is hosted by Percolator Co-Working Space and organized by Sharon Blackwell, owner of Every Little Thing Market.

Tickets begin at $297. Additional VIP ticket options and hotel information are listed on the event website.
