Several small business owners are getting some tips on using social media.

The Iowa small business development center hosted a workshop to expand knowledge and skills needed to be successful on the web.

One Social Media gave the presentation, focusing on creating a Facebook page, expanding your business online and using other social media outlets to gain attention.

CEO Joe Soto says while many businesses are using social media, they may need some guidance on how to be the most effective

“We hold these workshops even if they’re only an hour at a time to teach people how to do it correctly, so it becomes more of a good use of their time to get their message out there rather than poor waste,” says Soto.

The Iowa small business development center holds workshops throughout the year to help business owners succeed.
