On April 14th we’ll kick off an online class taught by our own Elena, Dillon, and she’s with us here today to talk about the class. Take it away, Elena:
So, Iâ€™m a little bit of an information junkie. I love technology. I love gadgets and I love learning new things. When Social Media came about I knew Iâ€™d found a new love–all the stuff Iâ€™m enamored with in one place.
When a new Social Media platform launches I want to check it out. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Instagram. My kids are horrified. â€œMom, thatâ€™s not for you. Thatâ€™s for young people.â€ Hmmm. Not so much. Really the only new one I havenâ€™t started using is SnapChat. I value my sleep and I know my children will be sending me SnapChats all night if I get an account there.
Besides I really donâ€™t have time for any more, I have books to write!
This April Iâ€™ll be teaching a class for Orange County RWA called â€œSocial Media for the Confused and Terrifiedâ€.If you couldnâ€™t tell by the title itâ€™s for anyone who is a beginner at Social Media, anyone who has been putting it off because they donâ€™t want to go to the trouble of figuring it out, and anyone who isnâ€™t tech savvy.
The class is geared for Romance Writers but anyone can use it. I have tons of resources, videos and podcasts to learn from step by step. I will be teaching as much as I can about as many platforms as I can fit in. The class is going to be more of a workshop format. None of this “sit back and just absorb the information”! Weâ€™re going to be doing. Weâ€™re going to be helping each other and building our audience.
Donâ€™t be overwhelmed. Donâ€™t be scared. If you need to learn how to manage your Social Media marketing and platforms, this is the class for you.
We will be using each platform but weâ€™ll be doing it together.So sign up. No excuses. Iâ€™m going to make it easy. And weâ€™re going to have fun doing it.
Thanks, Elena. Sign up, everyone! No excuses, it’s easy, just go here.
