The free event, held in conjunction with the city of Covington, St. Tammany West Chamber of Commerce and SCORE, will be held at the Greater Covington Center on 317 N. Jefferson Ave. from 9 a.m. to noon.
"The buzzword in marketing and the 800-pound gorilla in social media is, without a doubt, Facebook," said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center. "It is common today for most businesses to have a Facebook page, but once you create the page, what do you do with it? This seminar will look at some advanced techniques for using Facebook as a marketing tool."
Summers said participants will learn about landing pages, page design, deals, analytics, best practices, contests and more.
"Brian Walker, owner of 5 Stones Media will instruct the class," Summers said. "Brian is also a regional representative for Constant Contact and travels throughout the state to educate businesses on ways to reach and keep their customer base through effective and affordable marketing technologies."
