Tech Connect Features Social Media Expert

This month’s Tech Connect event features digital and social media marketing expert Tiffany Phillips, who will discuss how social media strategies can improve your company’s brand and increase revenue. Phillips’ presentation will encompass developing effective social media strategies, current trends affecting businesses and best practices for platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn. This month’s virtual networking event will take place on Thursday, Jan. 21, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

“Social media is a very powerful tool and key communication channel for modern businesses. Well-planned social and digital marketing strategies can have a huge impact on a company’s success, so today’s leaders need to become proficient with them as well as the latest technology tools,” stated Phillips.

The Modesto Chamber of Commerce, Bay Valley Tech and Valley Sierra Small Business Development Center (SBDC) established Tech Connect to expand networking among regional businesses that use digital marketing/technology services and the providers of those services. Tech Connect is open to all local entrepreneurs and business professionals.
