Campers work in pairs under the direction of adults and take part in workshops to learn about judging dairy animals, dairy management, animal care ethics and showmanship. Persons working in the dairy industry visit with campers about careers in the dairy industry as well. Participants at the 2017 cow camp will also be certified in the Show-Me Quality Assurance program.

Is your Business Google-ized?

When:  Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 9 a.m. to noon

Description:

Is Your Business Google-ized? Workshop Ideal Audience: Small business owners, self employed professionals, and startups. From this class you will get an overall understanding of what Google wants in order for you to be found in organic (non-paid) searches. If you manage your own website, you will be given insider tips webmasters use to be successful on Google. And if you have a webmaster, you will leave with a list of things to pass along that will give your online presence a boost. Marketing today is much more than just having a website. You will learn what signals Google looks for on your website, and how to optimize for Google as well as humans. Next step is creating great content that will attract those customers to you – customers you have identified as ideal for what you have to offer. Once you have the content, you need to promote it with social media. But which channel? We can help you there. We discuss capturing those leads once they find you online. Because having 1,000 visitors means nothing unless you communicate with them and grow your list. Finally, we discuss the importance of mobile marketing and what makes a web site mobile friendly. Join us and get your business Google-ized!
