SBA Webinar to Present Social Media Strategies for Crisis Communications

Whether it’s a fast-moving storm, a power outage or an in-house crisis, providing a business’s clients and business partners with status updates is key to the survival of the organization. Social media is an essential crisis communications tool, but developing an effective plan may seem like a challenging task.
Get tips on creating a crisis communications plan using social media during a webinar scheduled for 2-3 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Feb. 10, which will be co-hosted by Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The title of the program is “Social Media and Disaster Recovery.” The discussion will include:
The value of social media and its use in crisis situations
Simple first steps any organization can take to build their presence
