June 5, 2012 - Equestrian Professional's Social Media Boot Camp provides an accelerated learning environment that helps horse business owners grow, manage and maintain a profitable social media presence without wasting time.
Social media has clearly proven itself to be a powerful 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 horse industry professionals to its next 2012 Social Media Boot Camp that will be held June 17th - 25. Boot camp attendees will get eight group coaching classes and support materials designed specifically for horse industry businesses. The course takes place online and two live sessions are offered each day. 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.
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 and recently spoke at both the UPHA (United Professional Horseman's Association) and AHP (American Horse Publications) conventions this year.
"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 couldnˇ¦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... what one doesn't know the other does. 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 make a sale 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. Steps that 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 and so attendees will likely learn as much from each other as they do from us!"
