August workshop: How to improve your instagram engagement

Thursday August 22nd, 4:30-6:30pm Rhea Gates manages the Instagram account for Marley's Monsters and is successful at engaging past and potential customers on their Instagram account. Rhea will give us an interactive presentation on the connection between sales and engagement on Instagram. She will talk about how social media engagement is essentially virtual customer service and provide details such as appropriate platforms for different business types, hashtags, and more, that assist in increased visibility, engagement and direct sales!

Don't miss this workshop! It's free and just for 2019 WCM vendors! We'll start with a vendor snack-luck from 4:30-5:30pm. Bring a snack to share and we'll spend some time catching up together. Then at 5:30, Rhea will begin her presentation and we will wrap up by 6:30pm. Please let us know if you are attending!

We are meeting at the McNail Riley House, located on the corner of 13th & Jefferson. There are about 4 parking spaces in the Lincoln Appartments parking lot reserved for guests to the McNail Riley House.
