SMB Bangor #48: How Maine’s big media companies are winning online

Posted on August 19, 2015

We’re all working overtime to stay in touch with our audience and provide them with content that keeps them engaged and coming back for more. The September Social Media Breakfast covered how the media pros in Maine are winning this battle. WABI TV5, BDN Maine and Maine Today Media command some of the largest and most active Facebook and Twitter pages in the state and continue to grow their reach even as Facebook and Twitter become more competitive for eyeballs.

Our panel discussion included the following topics:

  • Platforms of choice for business (and why)
  • Engagement levels and types of posts
  • Methods of success
  • Ways to “beat” Facebook’s algorithm
  • Trends
  • Future plans
  • Questions from attendees
 Start your month off right by investing a breakfast into learning about all of the above and more.
