OK, so 8 AM is way early and you don’t start functioning until you’ve had your coffee. The coffee will be on when you get there and a fresh muffin will get you through the 1+ hours of terrific information on how to generate more $$$ with no cash out of pocket.

Kelly Wright, our webmaster and Lillie Cintron, our Operations Manager will lead a panel of local experts who have created success after success using social media as well as provide “how to” information. We guarantee that you will pick up several ideas and practices that will each make you more money than the modest cost of this seminar.

Come yourself and bring an employee or family member who can run a social media program for you, (should be at least 14 yrs. old). The total cost for the two days is $15 for members and/their representatives and $25 for non-members.
A workbook and refreshments are included. Register now as space is limited.

You may register on-line at, (click on Events), at the Chamber Info. Center or at the Gulfport Beach Bazaar.
