Learn what the most effective people do differently.

Many people new to social media marketing often focus on communicating their products and services, instead of building a relationship with their target communities. Ultimately, this can lead to customers feeling spammed, uninterested, and can have the opposite effect that the entrepreneur intended. At this workshop, Lee Edward, will talk about 5 principles to avoid this mistake.

You will learn about:
-Finding common ground
-Keeping your communication simple
-Capturing people’s interest
-Inspiring people
-Staying authentic in all your relationships
