In Maine summer arrives fast and hard – and sometimes seems to leave just as quickly. Business owners all over the state have a brief window to capture people’s attention, time, and dollars before the temperatures drop, the leaves fall, and the tourists head back south.
This month’s breakfast will feature three presenters from different parts of the state that all see tremendous growth in the summer months. They work with many seasonal and year-round businesses and help them perfect social media strategies that get people thinking about their yearly visit to Maine.
You won’t want to miss out on this chance to learn how to maximize your business’s brand year-round to guarantee you get the maximum visitation possible in the summer months.
