BBC Friday 20 May 2016 – “Using Facebook To Your Advantage”

Beth-Headshot-WPJoin us this BBC Friday for special guest Beth Knost,, for a fresh new perspective on Using Facebook Without Letting Facebook Use You! 

RealCirclesLogoBBC regular Ed McNamara recently introduced me to Beth, a business colleague from across the water (and I don’t mean across the Atlantic, where the real BBC is located in an unnamed country). Beth visited BBC a few weeks ago and enjoyed our camaraderie and creativity, and she kindly offered to share some of her social networking skills and business wisdom. 

Is Facebook right for your business? Beth will discuss how to use Facebook well, what works, and what not to do. Join us for the conversation and discover untapped ways to use Facebook to your advantage. Beth on the web: | | | [email protected].

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy maties, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
