Idea Girl Media sponsors the January Jig - A collaborative Facebook event with 26 social media, non-profit & business pros discussing today's relevant topics

The Key Is Collaboration

Small business owners and non-profit stakeholders frequently ask me for helpful tips to improve their organization’s brand awareness, and efficiency on social media.

While I do write how-to articles, answer any question on my Facebook Page, and speak for community groups, I find hands-on experience an effective way of relating points, and a perfect opportunity for learning.

2011 brought success with  Pre-Holiday Facebook: Game Of Like.  This was a simulation course of sorts, focusing on engagement and Facebook Page success for Facebook Page admins of all types.

2012 brings an excellent opportunity to offer access to many leaders collaborating to offer help on a wider spectrum of topics:

  • Social Media.
  • Careers.
  • Non-profit.
  • Lifestyle.
  • Web Development.
  • Design.
  • And more!
