Do ever wonder what the best social media platforms for retailers are?
Are you using social reactively instead of proactively?
Do you struggle to determine when to post in order to achieve optimal engagement?

Whether you’ve answered ‘yes,’ ‘no’ or ‘unsure’ to any of the above, you’ll appreciate that the world of social media is an ever-evolving communication channel that is hard to keep up with.

There is so much information readily available on social media marketing but working out what’s right and relevant for your retail business can be tricky.

What this meet-up is all about.

Hosted at Vend Toronto, join other retailers from all over Toronto for a free, casual and informative meetup focused on the world of social media. Hear from three industry leaders who will share their expertise in taking practical steps to develop or refine your current social media strategy so it’s effective, measurable, and repeatable.

Expect to walk away with new retail friends from your community plus lots of actionable insights around which social platforms are right for you and how to best leverage them for your business.

You’ll hear from:


Joallore Aon @clickflickca
Co-Founder of @DevTO, “blog-goer”, member of Red Cross Twitter team and organizer of #RegiftTO. This social instigator will be sharing his expertise and wealth of knowledge in putting together a solid social strategy tailored to your business.
