This seminar will look at some advanced techniques for using Facebook as a marketing tool.” Summers said participants will learn about landing pages, page design, deals, analytics, best practices, contests and more. Brian Walker, owner of 5 Stones Media, will teach the class, Summers said. “Brian is also a regional representative for Constant Contact and travels throughout the state to educate businesses on ways to reach and keep their customer base through effective and affordable marketing technologies.” Pre-registration is preferred.
