Social media has clearly proven itself to be a powerful marketing and communication tool for the equestrian niche. However, the challenge most horse business owners have is finding the time to do it right. If you've ever wished you could get more done in less time, listen up! EquestrianProfessional.com invites all horse business owners to the next 2012 Social Media Boot Camp. The Boot Camp, which will be held June 17th – 24, provides an accelerated learning environment that consists of eight group-coaching sessions and support materials designed specifically for horse industry businesses. These sessions will teach horse business owners how to grow, manage and maintain a profitable social media presence without wasting time.
The course takes place online and each session will be repeated twice (morning and evening). Attendees can choose from one of the two live session times, or you are welcome to attend both like many have in the past. Video replays are also available and can be viewed at any time. In addition, each attendee also receives a private social media consulting session with the boot camp instructors.
This is not your ordinary social media seminar program! Most social media training programs fall short for two reasons. One, the material isn't real world applicable (especially for horse businesses.) Two, they don't provide the ongoing support necessary to succeed. This is why we created the Equestrian Social Media Boot Camp and Mastermind Program.
Each class will be taught by equestrian marketing experts Elisabeth McMillan, of the award-winning horse business website EquestrianProfessional.com, and Chad Mendell, of CowDog Media (formerly the executive editor of TheHorse.com). Both McMillan and Mendell were judges for the 2012 Equestrian Social Media Awards.
“I really was impressed at how much I learned at your recent Social Media webinars,” said Lua Oas Southard, CEO of Equine Resources International, LLC. “Because of my busy schedule I couldn’t get to each one on the night it happened, but you made it easy for me to catch up, for which I thank you so much. What a great combination you two are. Thanks again for all your hard work in putting these seminars together.”
“Social media can open many doors for equine professionals to have a conversation with current and potential customers," Mendell said. "That conversation can not only help you gain a new customer, but more importantly, create a loyal customer. We've put together a program that will teach you actionable steps to incorporate social media into your business's overall marketing plan. These steps will help you engage your customers more and, at the same time, increase your bottom line."
"The benefit of our program isn't just the quality of the material we've prepared but the quality of the participants," said McMillan. "Our boot camp brings together some of the best minds in the horse business. So attendees will likely learn as much from each other as they do from us!"
