uptown goes social

Mt. Lebanon’s Commercial Districts Manager Eric Milliron organized two seminars on Monday for business owners to discuss ways social media could help them effectively market their services. The seminar, which was the first in a series of planned technology mini-summits, focused on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, with attention on Foursquare, YouTube, blogging and LinkedIn. Laura Pace Lilley, of the municipality’s public information office, helped attendees think through their goals and plan ways social media could help without overtaxing their already busy days.

Eric plans several more free seminars, including one on how to make sure your website ranks highly in search engines, among other topics. To get on Eric’s email list to be notified of upcoming workshops, contact him at emilliron@mtlebanon.org.
