Learn about social-media marketing

The next Thinking Thursday session presented by the Kalispell Chamber of Commerce will focus on “how social media is a blue-collar business BFF.”

The session runs from 8:30 to 10 a.m. April 19 at the Kalispell Chamber office, 15 Depot Park.

Social-media marketing is a powerful, yet confusing tool that often leaves small businesses who don’t have millions of dollars behind them frustrated and overwhelmed. Have you: been unable to crack the code of making it work for you rather than just wasting time? Are you unsure of what and when to post and how to create content? Have you been mystified by the fancy gizmos and gadgets that come with putting your business online? If you have answered yes to any of these, register for the free event by calling the Kalispell Chamber at 758-2800.
