Make plans to attend purePR’s cost free, social media conference on June 3 at the Saint Charles Convention Center

facebookrackcard2013The power of social is on the rise. Last year, the average Facebook and Twitter communities grew by 30% and 81%, respectively. A strong understanding of social media is essential for businesses to maintain and engage with their communities.

A clear vision and strategy are key to achieving your desired social media results. This same philosophy is echoed by purePR, a Main Street St. Charles, Mo. based communications group where “mission matters most.”

Regardless of your experience, you can learn practical ways to harness the power of social to pursue your business goals, leverage customer loyalty, and engage new customers at the first Main Street Merchant Meet-up. Presented by purePR, in partnership with the Greater Saint Charles CVB and the Saint Charles Convention Center, this cost free half-day summit offers the potential to increase your social media savvy.

The Main Street Merchant Meet-up will take place from 8:00 a.m. – Noon on Monday, June 3, 2013 at the Saint Charles Convention Center, located at 1 Convention Center Plaza in Saint Charles, MO.

This event is designed to provide Saint Charles-based businesses and organizations with insight on current trends and strategies that can be applied right now. Sessions will be led by purePR’s owner, Gretchen Jameson, a frequent speaker and trainer for organizations and conferences.

Pre-registration is required. Visit the event page to secure your space.

Participants can expect to gain the following:
