"Social Media Strategies to Reach Your Target Audience"
Social Media is changing how companies market their business. The way social media is used can establish your company as a leader in your field and generate interest in your company and current projects.
Antony Francis, CEO, Head of Lettuce Media (HOLM), will share social media expertise integrating social media into your business plan. HOLM, started in 2009, was started as a way to help local businesses become more educated on social media. Since then Antony has consulted with small and large companies on their social media needs while maintaining a strong international tech community presence and supporting the local Tampa, Florida business community and events.
Chris Vivian will share NFSTC’s journey and strategy in the world of social media. Over the past year, the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC) has worked to build a community of engaged followers that includes forensic practitioners, law enforcement, students at every level, the broader justice community, and members of the public with an interest in forensic science. From a meager presence on Facebook and Twitter at the start of 2012, NFSTC used a highly focused strategy to grow their social presence. Today, NFSTC has seen more than 120% growth in Facebook fans and a greater than 1,200% increase in Twitter followers. NFSTC recently received the BizTech 2013 Innovation Award in the category of Best Use of Social Media.
Presented by Tampa Bay Innovation Center as part of the eHub, TECH Talk is the area’s premier networking and education event developed specifically to meet the interest of the local entrepreneurial community.
