Quickinars mix oil, gas, social media

Quick seminars for business teach social media skills

CALGARY, May 9 /CNW/ - Calgary businesses are showing an appetite for social media education, even the traditionally conservative oil and gas sector. That's why Quickinars has a full slate of social media training lined up for May and June at http://Quickinars.com.

"In just six months we have put dozens of people through social media training," says Quickinars co-producer Doug Lacombe. "From painters to pipelines, naturopaths to natural gas producers, First Nations to first time business owners, we've trained a lot of people on social media marketing."

Quickinars are a co-production of online marketing agencies Anduro Marketing and communicatto, who together have a combined thirty plus years in web-building, Internet marketing, Search Engine Optimization, pay per click advertising, social media and more.

Internet veterans Jeff Nelson, President of Anduro Marketing, and Doug Lacombe, President of communicatto deliver most sessions, with the occasional guest expert as the topic demands.

"We bring in subject matter experts to enrich the curriculum as needed," says Nelson. "We had Ernest Barbaric, a well-known digital marketing consultant and speaker, teach a class on building better landing pages. Attendees loved him. Wayne Courchene, journalist and consultant, guided us through our inaugural First Nations session. We couldn't have done it without him. CNW's Alma Abugov spoke on social media releases, and Rick Brost from Actiance told the oil and gas group about state-of-the-art social media security systems."

May and June are chock-a-block with Quickinars, with topics including business efficiency, social media strategy, social media for oil and gas, and social media for non-profits.

"It's so gratifying to see our students go out and tackle social media, even if just in a small way," says Lacombe. "They gain confidence and skills from the class which they use to build solid programs, convince their bosses, and deliver measurable results."

Seminar details are available at http://Quickinars.com or call 403-410-3803.
