Jerry Dominguez, owner of Printing Control, gave great tips and insight to how businesses could use Facebook to get more exposure for their business on Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Networking Breakfast, sponsored by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary.
Dominguez demonstrated different ways you could interact on Facebook to increase your business visibility and encouraged the audience to be more interactive on social media. Dominguez also encouraged members to use the Chamber Facebook page to promote upcoming events by sending information to email@example.com as a way to get more exposure for your business.
