Thank you to the Chamber members who were able to attend the Social Media Networking evening last night. We had seven who attended to engage in a conversation about the different social media outlets and how to use them for business purposes. It was a learning experience for all, learning a bit about the different types and the intended use for each. Focus was put on Facebook and Linked In. No one in the group was an expert on either of these so we took to the internet to learn from others.
Facebook, "a large social network where people create profiles, exchange messages, and report status updates. Great for brand exposure and customer relations".
Linked in, "build and engage with your professional network". "Where business socialize".
The group "played" around with Facebook in each of our accounts and discussed thoughts on how we could use more effectively for business.
The group felt it was a worth-while conversation and that we should continue to do this type of networking. Any member wanting to join in the conversation but cannot attend is welcome to email your ideas, ways you use social media, or questions, and we'll add them to the conversation. Look for the next scheduled date tbd.
Utica Comets Hockey Night
Trenton Chamber of Commerce members participated in a CAMV sponsored night at a Utica Comets Hockey game Friday night at the Utica Auditorium. Thirty seven tickets were purchased by Trenton members, who enjoyed a great game on the ice. The Comets lost 2-1 in overtime, but played a great game. Thank you CAMV for a fun event and thank you to the Trenton Chamber members who enjoyed this event.
