Social media strategies for crisis communications webinar | Small Business Administration

Communicating a key message to your staff, clients and business partners in a timely and accurate manner is essential when a disaster strikes.  Increasingly, organizations are relying on social media to get ahead of and dispel misinformation that can lead to a tarnished reputation, and even failure of the company.

 

Get tips on creating a crisis communications plan using social media during the Feb. 11 webinar co-hosted by Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration.  The discussion will include:

 

·       Effective uses of various social media channels

·       Simple first steps toward building a crisis communications plan

·       Best practices based on recent disasters

A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

 

Since 2009, the SBA has partnered with Agility Recovery to offer business continuity strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to check out past webinars and to download helpful disaster preparedness checklists.
