About the May Social Media Breakfast
In the rush for “immediate” marketing results on social media, is your creative process suffering or getting skipped altogether? Betsy Bonnema from REDstar, a full service advertising agency in Willmar, will talk about the importance of maintaining a collaborative, insightful and rigorous creative process, no matter where you want to advertise. Along the way, she’ll give you a behind-the-scenes look at her team’s creative journey in the launch of WORKUP, a new coworking space she opened in May of last year. Marketing for the space has relied heavily on social media, and Betsy will share some of their creative wins and losses throughout the journey.
Betsy Bonnema is the owner of REDstar, a full-service marketing and advertising agency with a 25 year history in the Willmar area. In May of 2015, Betsy and her team launched a new business venture called WORKUP, a coworking and meeting space on the historic MinnWest Technology Campus in Willmar. Her growing REDstar team is now the anchor tenant and marketing agent of WORKUP. Betsy is also an active community volunteer, organizer of the annual TEDxWillmarLive event and mom of two teenage daughters.
About Willmar Lakes Area Social Media Breakfast
The Willmar Lakes Area Social Media Breakfast (SMB) kicked off for the first time in 2012. Since then, a dedicated group has served on the committee working to bring local organizations to the table to share their social media knowledge with the rest of us! Since it’s start, the group has grown to bring in regional experts on not only social media but also analytics, email marketing, blogging, social advertising and other digital marketing techniques. We gather the first Thursday of each month at 8am to hear from these experts.
The Willmar Lakes Area SMB group would not be here if it wasn’t for the folks who serve on the committee and our generous sponsors.
Thank you to our sponsors for contributing everything from the necessities (like coffee) to time and funding. We truly appreciate you!
