SMBCME – Be Seen on Screen: Using Social Media to Enhance Your Brand

Presentation Description:
Join SMBCME and HAIBI for our November Social Media Breakfast presented by our very own Nate Towne from Waterville Creates! and Christopher Hastings Confections. If you don’t know Nate, then you’re in for a treat!

Nate will share his wealth of knowledge including content formatting on the largest social media networks – what works and what doesn’t. He will also provide inside information on the ever-changing social media algorithms and marketing tricks to keep your head above the scroll! Learn what’s important and what’s not so you can effectively be the marketer you know you can be.

This is one event you don’t want to miss. If you’re a marketer, a business owner or an avid social media practitioner, you’ll want to attend our final social media breakfast of the year!

Speaker Biography:
Nate Towne is the marketing director for Waterville Creates!, a non-profit connecting artists, organizations, and the public with arts and cultural events and programs happening in the central Maine community, as well as the co-owner of Christopher Hastings Confections, an artisan chocolate shop in downtown Waterville.

With more than 20 years of experience in the communications industry, including the founding of his own PR practice and working for some of the leading small advertising agencies in the country, Nate knows the learning never ends. Once sought after for his consumer product launch expertise, he now runs the day-to-day marketing programs for an art house cinema, a 116 year old opera house, the largest and oldest film festival in Maine, a community art gallery, visual arts classroom, clay and 3D printing studios, and the somewhat nebulous non-profit organization that binds them all together. All this and chocolate too. Life is good!

When not marketing the arts or chocolate, Nate is the chair of the Kennebec Valley Tourism Council and markets all our region has to offer.
