In 2017, having an effective digital media strategy is vital to the overall effectiveness of your marketing efforts. One of the most important (and affordable) tools in your digital toolkit are the various social media platforms available to help a business connect with its target audience. But which social media platforms are right for your business? How often should you be posting content? And for that matter, where is this “content” coming from? We know you have questions!

Prosper Jefferson: Cyber Security

We live in exciting and interesting times with new technology coming online every day! But with new technology comes new threats. No, we’re not talking about artificial intelligence and robots (though that would certainly be fascinating). Instead, we’re talking about hackers, who want to steal your data and use it for their own gain, and the ways that you can thwart their efforts. These days, its more important than ever to know that your information is secure; that important data, assets, and information are protected online and off; and that you have a plan in place to restore data in the event of a disaster or disruption. Equally important is protecting your business from liability should your data be compromised. We know this sounds a bit doom and gloom, but that’s why we’ve pulled together a group of four experts to ensure this kind of scary stuff doesn’t happen to you or your business.As part of our ongoing Prosper Jefferson seminar series, JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to bring you a seminar on Cyber Security. Topics include:

 

 

  • How to protect your data – both as an individual and as a business owner
  • Five fundamentals of effective cybersecurity training
  • What happens if your data is stolen
  • Cyber insurance & protecting your business in the event of a data breach

Prosper Jefferson: Customer Service

In business, the way you interact with your customers says a lot about your brand. Good customer service can help a business save face in the event of a misstep.

Successful business leaders develop process and protocol to maintain their brand at every level and from every angle; they develop rules and guidelines for how employees connect with consumers and how they treat each other internally. Need a refresher on living your brand and developing a solid customer service process at your business? Then, this is the seminar for you!
