Social Media Workshops

February 17, 2017

Be Social.
Basic concept:
Is our business community ready for the extra traffic that free park access to Waterton is going to bring?  If people are sitting in line waiting to get into Waterton and want to choose a different location we want Pincher Creek to be the first & best choice that pops up.  How will they be looking while sitting in their car waiting- on their smart phones.  Will your business appear?  Castle Wildland Park is coming!  When people are looking for information on the park will your business pop up their screens? Will Pincher Creek look like a vibrant interesting community that is worth checking out?
