Social media’s role in promoting businesses examined

Marketing consultants among guest speakers for Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society forum on Thursday.

It looks like marketing through social media is here to stay. Some would even say that is replacing traditional marketing methods. And it’s so easy to do that everybody can do it.

But if it’s so easy to do, then why aren’t we all¬†rich¬†beyond our wildest dreams?

That question and others surrounding the use of social media to promote your business will be the topic of discussion at the upcoming Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society monthly forum Thursday, July 25, at the Kelowna Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre.

The guest speakers will include Andrea Lindal, owner of Lexabi Communications, a website development and print design firm; Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown, owner of Redscoope Media, a business marketing consultant; and Rae Stonehouse, a registered nurse who has worked in the health care field for more than 30 years.

Stonehouse is also the current chairman of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society.
