We also know that volunteering enhances the social connections between different sectors, builds the bridges for governments, local businesses and residents.

Heathe Jones of Cre8 Studios will guide us in an exploration of what happens when we can emotionally connect people with our community and causes using social media at the next Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training’s monthly breakfast meeting, April 7 at 8 a.m. at Operation Oswego County, 44 W. Bridge St.

Understanding one’s customers is crucial for owners of small businesses and social media is a great way to do that.

Every day local activities and experiences are now massively shared over various social media platforms through geotagged pictures, videos, posts and check-ins. Join us to learn how can we use this information to better communicate.
