Plan to attend the next Chamber-sponsored workshop on Thursday, September 29 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Rushford Village Community Center: Roadside Advertising in the Digital Age. Can people find businesses, attractions, and other places in our area with a computer, a smartphone or GPS device? It’s not enough to be in the phone book any more. You must have a web presence so customers and visitors can search for you via Google Maps, Mapquest and similar services. You also want to be found by owners of GPS devices and by the 150 million people using smartphones, such as iPhones and Androids, to get directions and advice on where to go.
Location-based mobile applications have revolutionized the way people find and choose places to shop, to eat, to fix their car – you name it. Advertise your community and everything good it offers along the digital highway. University of Minnesota Extension instructors will give us the tools and know-how to make a mark in the digital age.
Benefits of attending this workshop include:
- Understand how today’s consumers use location-based services in everyday activities.
- Learn how to place your business or organization on a variety of digital maps.
- Make sure the available information about your business or organization is correct.
- Learn how to maximize your organization’s digital map presence.
Lunch will be served during this workshop. Mark your calendars now, and stay tuned for registration details in August or call the Chamber at 507-864-3338.
