EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA – The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Eastern Pennsylvania District Office’s Lending Relations Specialist Linda Williams will participate in the Chester and Delaware County SCORE “Women Driving Business Success” forum.  A panel of social media experts will discuss social media marketing, from strategy to implementation including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 

There will be an additional panel of local women business leaders, who will discuss boosting the bottom line with social media marketing as well as a keynote presentation “The Generation Gap – How to Reach Your Market Using Social Media” to introduce new and existing trends in internet marketing.

“This seminar is designed for those interested in using social media to reach new markets,” Williams said.  “The response to the two prior ‘Women Driving Business Success’ forums was very strong, so we are teaming with SCORE to bring it to business owners in the area again.” The event’s coordinators encourage business owners to bring plenty of business cards for a networking lunch following the presentations.
