PRAM welcomes nationally accredited speaker

MERIDIAN —     The Meridian chapter of the Public Relations Association of Mississippi (PRAM) is inviting members of the business community to harness the power of content marketing and social media at its March meeting Friday at noon in the Rush Hospital Cafeteria meeting room.

    Deborah York Geiger, APR, a nationally accredited public relations professional with 20 years of marketing experience spanning healthcare, construction, nonprofits and technology, will show professionals in public relations, marketing, communications and the business field the tools to building business through search-engine optimization.

    "Today, it's not so critical where your business is physically located, but where in the list your business appears on the Google search results," said Geiger. "The key to this organic search location is content-relevant, timely, updated content. We'll discuss how to align all outgoing communications efforts from advertising and social media to events and meetings into one powerful communications engine."

    Geiger will cover these topics as well as the differences between the most powerful social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and how to determine which networks are useful for your organization.

    Takeaways include tips for creating a content calendar, the top free (and not free) time-saving and content grabbing tools, tips for building engagement, staying creative, and ways to connect your social media, e-mail newsletters, blog and website to one communications powerhouse of online visibility. Learn more about Geiger at her website,
