So when the US Small Business Administration starts offering free webinars on how to use social media in your business, you gotta wonder. Is anybody out there not using Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or Pinterest?
We'll assume most of you who haven't are just a bit busy. Or you're inclined to wait for the next big thing.
OK, but still. The offer is free. Why not give it a try?
The opportunity starts next Wednesday, April 24, when the US SBA and W20 Group will launch a five-topic webnar to give owners a chance to assess how to use social media.
It's listed as an Introduction to Social Media: Helping You Get Started. It starts at 10 a.m. Pacific time on the 24th.

In future webinars, the topics will include blogging, content for Facebook, using Twitter, and using location-based marketing.
