Still don't have a Facebook page for your craft business? Does the thought of Twitter cause you to twitch? Well no worries friend! This week our Handmade Triad group will be delving into the world of social media at our April meeting. To get you started, here are some links to help you get a leg up.

If you are like me, visual learning is sometimes easier than reading instructions. Check out HubSpot's video here for setting up a Facebook page for your business. You will set up a page, learn ways to promote your page and tips for creating a great page.
HubSpot also has a video here for setting up a Twitter account for your business.

Ebooks - Twitter and Facebook
Meylah, the blog devoted to building an online creative community, has a free downloadable eBook to get you started with Facebook, Twitter and Flikr. Inside the presentation are additional links to articles to help

See wasn't that easy? Now that you have your page built, check out Meylah's article on 10 ways to maximize your Facebook fan page here. And finally after your Twitter business page is ready, check out the post by Social Media expert Chris Brogan on 50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business.

Be sure to check out our blog tomorrow. We will feature local social media expert Lisa Snedeker. Lisa will be taking our group through a Social Media Bootcamp that will surely get us 'in shape' with social media.
