Facebook, Local Chambers Of Commerce To Host Free Workshop For Carmel Small Businesses

Posted by ehayden on August 27, 2015

On Wednesday, September 2, Facebook’s Small Business Boost will travel to Carmel, Ind., to connect local small businesspeople with the tools they need to boost their businesses using Facebook.

The event will be co-hosted by the One Zone Commerce Connected, Westfield Chamber of Commerce, Noblesville Chamber of Commerce and Northern Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce, with Congresswoman Susan Brooks welcoming entrepreneurs. 

“Hamilton County is home to an increasing number of small businesses and entrepreneurs,” Congresswoman Susan Brooks said. “Facebook is a valuable marketing tool, and I appreciate this opportunity for small businesses to learn more about reaching new customers and connecting with existing ones.  Empowering small businesses is important to our community, and I want to thank the organizers for hosting this event to help small businesses compete in a digital economy.”

The Small Business Boost seminar will include a presentation by a Facebook small business expert on the latest Facebook best practices and strategies for success. A Q&A panel will follow, featuring local small businesses that will share their tips, tricks and suggestions. The panelists are representing the following local small businesses: performance venue Nickel Plate District Amphitheater, farm equipment service and supply site Used Livestock Equipment and women’s clothing boutique Closet Candy Boutique.

During Facebook’s Networking Expo, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about community resources from local organizations and hear from local business leaders and decision makers.   

How do Facebook and small businesses connect?

  • There are more than 2 billion connections between local businesses and people who use Facebook.
