The Vance-Granville Community College Small Business Center is offering a pair of free seminars focused on helping businesses use two growing social media platforms.

Using Instagram to Gain & Retain More Business” is scheduled for Thursday, September 21, from 1-4 p.m., in room W4103 on VGCC’s Warren County Campus in Warrenton.

Then, “Snapchat for Small Business Owners” follows later that same day from 6-9 p.m. at the same location.

Leading both seminars will be Martin Brossman of Raleigh, a success coach, speaker, trainer and author. In the first seminar, Brossman will teach participants how to effectively use Instagram to stay “top of mind” with current customers and attract new customers. The second seminar focuses on Snapchat, which is capturing the attention of millennials with its disappearing photos and messages, filters and lenses, and private messaging. “Businesses have an opportunity to reach millennials not only with their engaging stories but by encouraging your customers to include your business in their special moment,” Brossman said.

The Warren Campus is located at 210 West Ridgeway Street in Warrenton.

The deadline to register for both seminars is Sept. 15. Registration can be completed at any VGCC campus or by following the instructions at
