Recap of Networking event held November 4th, 2014
On November 4th ,Angie and I held our 3rd Networking event. We hold our events at Artistic Exploratory Center in Greendale. I want to thank Wendy so much for letting us use her center for our networking events! We plan on using her space every first Tuesday of the month to hold our events. Wendy uses her space to teach art to kids. There are some great art projects going on in there!
Our networking event included a speaker as well as some social media information and games . Our speaker David Kocol of DavidKocolLLC talked to us about the importance of video and how it helps us in our small businesses. Videos are a great source to bring your potential customers closer. David says that we engage with people through looking at their faces, listening to their voice , feeling emotions and that we like movement. David also suggested that we use videos on facebook as a way to present what we do to our fans.
One of the attendees asked what the best format is for a video. David suggested MP4 format compressed. We can also learn many more tips on video for our business by taking one of his classes on how to take a video with your cellphone. Thanks again David for speaking, it was really informative. You can also find David on his website. www.DavidKocol.com.
In additional to our speaker, Angie and I presented some social media trends to look out for in 2015 and and a social media game that helped us learn more about social media as a whole.
We are looking forward to our next networking event in December.Hope you can make it!
