Chamber Lunch ‘N Learn Highlights Digital Marketing Techniques | New

The Palestine Region Chamber of Commerce’s Lunch N’ Learn Series hosts Digital Marketing Strategist Josh Chappell at the Redlands Hotel on Tuesday, September 6.

The chamber’s president and chief operating officer, Heather Chancellor, said she recently worked with Chappell to refine the chamber’s marketing strategies, SEO rankings and website layout.

“Chappell is a good speaker, easy to talk to and he actually listens,” Chancellor said. “He helps us with our SEO to be higher on Google’s search engine listings and helps us create a comprehensive marketing plan.”

Chappell said his advice focuses on building awareness and generating leads on Google channels and social media platforms.

“Essentially, Google and social media are ever-changing platforms,” ​​Chappell said. “Having the know-how or having a specialist who knows how to operate on site will save you a world of trouble.”

The Lunch N’ Learn series takes place once every six weeks and has been well received by members. Previous topics include grants, marketing, and small habits.

The July 8 Ladies’ Luncheon featured Stephanie Robinson of Texas Woman’s University, who discussed small business financing opportunities and other topics relevant to women entrepreneurs. The lunches were well attended and well received.

“At least three in five companies have contacted Robinson for assistance,” Chancellor said.

Other networking events include Breakfast, Brew and Business from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. September 8 at Chick-Fil-A and the Lunch Bunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, September 20 at 1855 Steakhouse & Saloon. Both events meet on a monthly basis at different locations.

Members and non-members alike are invited to partake in Lunch N’ Learn, which is served by Queen Street Grille at a cost of $35 per person from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lobby of the Redlands Hotel.

Tickets are limited and can be purchased by calling the chamber at 903-729-6066 or registering online at www.palestinechamber.org.
