As part of Women’s History Month, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) will join Facebook on Monday, March 28, at 9:30 a.m. for a Boost Your Business seminar at Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest – Roy Wilbanks Ballroom 1275 S. Huron St. in Ann Arbor. The seminar is free to the public and aims to provide local women small business owners with the most up-to-date tools, insights and best practices for optimizing their presence and engaging customers on the world’s largest social network.
The seminar, co-hosted by the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), will kick off with welcoming remarks from Dingell and will be followed by a presentation from a Facebook small business expert on the latest Facebook best practices and strategies for success. A question and answer session will follow, featuring a panel of local small business people that will share their Facebook tips, tricks and suggestions. The small businesses represented on the panel are Gift of Life Michigan, Ita Yoga Studio and Epic Races.
“Small businesses are the engines of our economy, and I am pleased to join Facebook for this important event in honor of Women’s History Month,” said Dingell. “This workshop will provide valuable information to help women-owned small businesses reach new customers, deepen relationships and continue to grow and contribute to our strong community.”
There are more than 50 million businesses worldwide using Facebook to connect with customers, and approximately 8 in 10 Facebook users are connected to at least one small business in their network.
