Watts Hall is on the corner of Highway 180 and Swan Street.

The workshop presenter is Robyne Beaubien, a Promotion Revitalization Specialist with New Mexico MainStreet. She loves what she does, and it shows in her enthusiastic, and practical approach to creating successful promotional plans for businesses, organizations, and communities.

The workshop will cover how to tell your story online, which social media platforms you should use, tips to maximize your business presence online, Facebook and Instagram tips, and much more.

Silver City MainStreet Executive Director Charmeine Wait states, “I have taken classes from Robyne and her classes are always fun and engaging. We are so happy to work with Jane Janson, the Director of the Small Business Development Center. Jane will be hosting the workshop in the SBDC computer lab. MainStreet has heard from a number of downtown businesses that they need help with social media so MainStreet and the SBDC decided to work together to get a class in the community. It is also a great opportunity to learn about the free services of the SBDC.”
