Today I participated on a panel discussion about social media and how to utilize it to help promote your business. This event was put on by the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce, Technology Professionals, also known as the TACC-Tech Pros. Tech Pros is a free benefit of being a member of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and they meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, except for November and December as there are a couple of big holidays that fall around those dates (Thanksgiving and Christmas).
The stated purpose of TACC-Tech Pros is to help bring together technology related companies and individuals. I agreed to be on the panel as I was hoping to reach more small businesses that are coming to the realization that the Yellow Pages and ads in throw away newspapers is not going to cut it anymore. Social media is a very important part of any businesses Internet presence and it should be a part of your SEO strategy. I was quite pleased at the standing room only turn out, and it was obvious that the attendees understand that they need a social media plan, even if they are not quite sure where to start. Hopefully, they learned a little today.
