Social Media Training – for the skeptical

Social Media Training
for the untrained, shy, hesitant and skeptical
(translation – farmers, ranchers, water managers and business people)

Last year, countless members of the California legislature watched what was trending on social media before voting on the ag overtime bill. Because farmers, business people and “upper generation” folks in general don’t use social media, no tweets or posts came and the legislators voted to pass the onerous overtime bill.

Learn how to use social media from the comfort of your office or pick-up truck
to help boost ag/business issues, show support or opposition to bills, regulations or other issues with legislators, politicians, regulators, special interest groups and the general public. It’s easy and can help make your voice heard in a state and nation over-run with tech-savvy special interest groups.

Or, just learn how to tell all your friends about your new dog.
