Oakland Digital 2nd Annual Social Media for Small Businesses

Space is limited. Register today!

On Wednesday, July 25th, 2012 Oakland Digital holds their 2nd Annual Social Media for Small Businesses event at Oakland City Hall. Last year over 220 small business owners, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, realtors, consultants, associations, churches and chambers of commerce members attended. Oakland Digital discovered during the first symposium that education on social media was long overdue and was extremely helpful for the business owners that attended.

Oakland Digital is back with their 2nd Annual Social Media for Small Businesses one-day event. This five-hour power-packed educational event is not to be missed. The event will open with Oakland Mayor Jean Quan with special guest MC Hammer along with Constant Contact, Wix.com, eBay, Yelp and Google who will be lending their social marketing expertise and will be sharing tips and tricks of the trade. “Constant Contact is delighted to be a part of this great event and to continue growing our partnership as we make a positive impact on small businesses throughout the East Bay” says Karen Rice, Constant Contact Northen California Regional Development Director.

As with last year, this event will provide an easy-to-learn platform in how to effectively use social media tools and help business owners learn how to reach untapped, potential customers while staying connected with current customers. Additionally, there will be a Q&A forum, expert panel and networking session. It is expected that this year’s event will exceed last year’s attendance so early registration is encouraged.

This event is open to the public with a suggested donation of $25 per person; registration is required. Donations will benefit Oakland Digital, an Oakland 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to continue their efforts in servicing the underserved community and youth. The suggested donation does not constitute a fee or admission charge to Oakland City Hall.
