Digital, social media workshop is April 18
Digital, social, mobile. Community newspapers have more competition than ever, but never have they had more opportunity to promote themselves and their content. Join us for a special workshop designed to help community dailies and weeklies integrate digital sales and social media promotion into their business plans. Small staffs can do this effectively; presenter Chris Rhoades will show us how.
The event will be held at the Overby Center for Southern Journalism & Politics on the campus of the University of Mississippi. Registration is free to MPA members through a grant from the MPA Education Foundation.
