Instagram, Vine and Pinterest: How to use them strategically to enhance your business potential

People relate to other people, not sales pitches and marketing jargon.

— Janet Fouts, CEO of Tatu Digital Media.

There is one thing that we can count on when it comes to social media – change. Learning how to keep up with it, embrace it and mold your digital content to fit that change is key to leveraging your online social presence. When most people think of social media they think of the most dominant social network – Facebook. Much has been said and written about Facebook, there is even a movie about it! However, there are other social platforms that have creative business uses to attract new clients.

On May 27, Kate Sikora, Media Coordinator at Noble Studios, will shed some light on Instagram, Vine, and Pinterest – social platforms that have their own audiences and tools for business owners. Kate will give a basic overview of each platform and spend some time discussing the audience and their behavior. She will also reveal content types and best practices for Instagram, Vine, and Pinterest as well as provide some tips for developing content, driving engagement, nurturing leads. Each social platform is different and metrics for each varies. Kate will show how to set goals, understand key performance indicators (KPI’s), and measure success using Instagram, Vine, and Pinterest.

By the time you leave the luncheon you will have a much better understanding of how to utilize Instagram, Vine, and Pinterest to find new clients and engage with them.
