The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University will host a free seminar on effective techniques for using Facebook in business from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at 21454 Koop Drive, Mandeville.

“The presentation is a guide for small businesses or nonprofits that have been using Facebook for social media marketing,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center, “but need some tips to take them to an intermediate level.”

Summers said core concepts will include a closer look at Facebook; how to tell if it is right for your business; what kind of content to create and post; etiquette; how to tell if content is working; suggestions on what to do next; and why social media and email marketing must be used together.

Pre-registration is preferred. For information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at (985) 549-3831 or lsbdc.slu@lsbdc.org. Online registration is available at www.lsbdc.org.
