FRIDAY MONTHLY, Small Business Education, FIRST FRIDAY: Teresa Adams-Tomka of Kitchen Collage, Hosted by The Greater Des Moines Partnership and the Iowa Center for Economic Success: 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, held at The Iowa Center, at 8345 University Blvd, Suite F. On the first Friday of every month, join us to hear the savvy, successful business owners + entrepreneurs of Des Moines share their story.
  • In a laid-back environment, you’ll catch some words of wisdom from women + men who have been through it before—and maybe walk away with a new connection (or two). 
  • Sessions are completely free and open to the public, and are held from 11:30am to 1pm, with networking from 11:30am to noon. Seating is first come, first served. Lunch is not provided, though we encourage you to bring your own if you’d like.
  • On Friday April 6 we’ll hear from Teresa Adams-Tomka, owner of Kitchen Collage in Des Moines’ East Village. Teresa knows how to create a welcoming environment – whether customers are there to stroll her shop, or engage in one of the many cooking classes offered. Presenting a wide range of kitchenware, cooking classes, and other unique items for entertaining, Teresa has established her business, in 1999, as that of an interactive one – providing her customers many reasons to continue engaging with her along the way.

Workshop: How to Succeed in Zuckerberg’s New Facebook, Hosted by AMA Iowa

Wednesday, March 21 at 3 PM – 6 PM, 3100 101st Street, Suite A, Urbandale.
Details and Registration.

Presenters:
Justin Wise | Think Digital
Chris Snider | Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication

Registration and Networking: 3-3:30 p.m.
Workshop: 3:30-5 p.m.
Social Hour & Venue Tour: 5-6 p.m.

Workshop Description: Everything changed on Jan. 11. That’s the day that Mark Zuckerberg decided to make Facebook more about friends and family and less about marketing.

Justin Wise from Think Digital and Chris Snider from Drake University will discuss how to succeed on Facebook in 2018 – from creating advertising that gives a return on your investment to creating content that will break through the new “friends and family” algorithm update.

Chris will discuss what we know about Facebook’s big update and what you can do to make sure your content still gets noticed by users. He’ll also offer some alternatives if Facebook is no longer working for your business. Justin will share his expertise for finding success with Facebook advertising that has come from placing thousands of dollars worth of advertising for clients.

After the workshop, there will be a social with drinks and a tour of Red Noise 6 Studios.

Key Takeaways:

  1. How to create content that breaks through Facebook’s algorithm
