Webinar (You'll receive a link from GoToWebinar about 1 week before the webinar date)

Cold calls, cold e-mails, and letter-writing campaigns aren't the only ways to get new clients anymore. LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter take the anxiety out of prospecting for clients. Because they're dynamic rather than static, they're excellent tools for showing rather than telling about your services and what it's like to work with you.

In this 90-minute webinar, learn how to how to find prospective clients and what to do to intrigue them. This course will not cover the basics of how to create your profiles on the social media Big 3, but it will touch on the do's and don'ts of profile particulars. Participants should already have at least basic LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter profiles set up before the webinar.

During the course, we will visit some participants' LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter profiles. When you sign up for the webinar, please e-mail the EFA office at office AT the-efa.org, using "Social Media Webinar" in the subject line, and provide links to your LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter profiles.

Instructions for setting up a Facebook profile: facebook.com/help/sign-up

Instructions for setting up a Twitter account: support.twitter.com/articles/100990-how-to-sign-up-on-twitter#

Since 1995, Katharine O'Moore-Klopf has helped researchers in more than 20 nations get their articles published in more than 35 US and UK biomedical journals by removing language barriers. She has been using social media since 2009 to attract new clients. You can find her at linkedin.com/in/kokedit on LinkedIn, and at facebook.com/K.OMooreKlopf on Facebook.
