My friend Des Walsh is offering a series of free, monthly webinars on social media for small business.
|Des and I met at BlogWorld 2008
(He’s drawing me a map
to his small town.)
The first issue will be TODAY, Monday, Jan. 24, 7pm USA Central Time.
Here is how Des describes it.
Going through to December 2011 (at least), this series of free monthly webinars will provide a way for business owners, entrepreneurs and freelance professionals to tap into current developments and thinking about social media in a business context, or “social business”. One of my aims is that the webinars will help participants ask better questions about social media. It will also provide a “space” to help participants develop social media roadmaps for their own businesses or careers.
I have a great deal of respect for Des. He is a savvy business person and knowledgeable on social media. He is also a small town kind of guy, with an understanding of rural issues. All of that adds up to a great resource for those of you looking to keep up on social media marketing.
You’ll find the webinar details at DesWalsh.com.

Thanks so much Becky. As you and I have discussed more than once, a lot of small town concerns are not shared or very similar across different countries. I’m a great believer, as you know, in the power of social media (social business) to level the playing field for small town and rural communities.

This is a great tool. I myself recently presented to a local small business association alongside Ric Dragon. Our presentation focused on social media for small businesses and how to DIY without having to hire someone. Offering these free tools to your community are a great way to simply help small businesses stay afloat during tough financial times. It’s a great service that Des is offering, and I’m sure the businesses really appreciate it.
