When a crisis hits your small business, getting the right message out quickly can protect your brand and speed up the recovery process. Increasingly, organizations are relying on social media to get ahead of and dispel misinformation that can lead to a tarnished reputation, and even failure of the company.

Effective uses of various social media platforms
Simple first steps toward building a crisis communications plan

A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
