Here you’ll gain hands-on experience on how to:

  •  build your Twitter presence,
  •  increase your audience and engage in relevant conversations,
  •  write tweets that will get retweeted or shared,
  •  create and manage a tweet schedule,
  •  and maximize the impact of your tweets to yield page views and sales.

The goal of this workshop is to give you a clear and in-depth understanding of the techniques that make Twitter a powerful social media tool.

In what format are the classes presented? We use Yahoo Groups to present our classes. After you sign up, an E-vite is sent to you email. You accept the E-vite to join the group and set up your membership (individual email is recommended).

When will I receive my E-vite? E-vites are typically issued two days before class begins.

What do I do if I am having a problem with my E-vite? Contact the moderator via email for assistance.

What do I do if I do not receive an E-vite? If you registered prior to the beginning of class and did not receive an E-vite within the above-mentioned time frame, first check your SPAM folder to ensure it was not incorrectly routed there. If there is no E-vite in your SPAM folder, please contact the Workshop Moderator via email to request another E-vite to be sent.
