Start Time: 10:00 am EST
End Time: 11:30 am EST
Location: Zoom Webinar
Did you know government agencies look at your social media presence and branding as part of the application process for bids? In this interactive session with government partners, we will learn how to develop game-changing, social media marketing strategies that win government contracts.
Government agencies are actively considering a business’s social media presence when evaluating contract proposals. In 2020 alone, small businesses secured $145.7 billion in contract dollars from the federal government. Despite this record-breaking funding, the increasingly competitive market makes it challenging for small businesses to advertise and provide their services to the government.
Join this workshop led by the D.C. Procurement Technical Assistance Center, a program of the Department of Small and Local Business Development, and digital marketing experts, to learn how an effective social media strategy can:
- Raise brand awareness
- Engage and educate your target agencies
- Build credibility
- Improve customer service
- Drive website traffic
- Reduce marketing budget
