The Virginia Beach Restaurant Association sponsored a free event on Wednesday, August 10th at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center to help members throughout our community learn how to become more socially savvy. The Hodges Partnership out of Richmond presented on the ins and outs of social media with a primary focus on facebook and twitter. They answered hot questions on QR Codes and LivingSocial/Groupon. The overall summary was that social media is here; it’s not going anywhere and if you are not actively participating you are losing out on a free marketing opportunity. For more information on the Hodges Partnership and how they can get you started please visit their website: http://www.hodgespart.com/. Please join us at our upcoming annual meeting scheduled for October 26th, from 5-7pm at Steinhiblers Restaurant.
