NCGA’s hold webinar covering “A Beginner’s Guide to Commenting on Blogs”


The National Corn Growers Association’s 2011 Social Media Training Program will feature a webinar this week covering “A Beginner’s Guide to Commenting on Blogs.” The program is generously supported by Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont Business, and is the fifth of 12 free hour-long online learning sessions underway monthly through 2011.

“Time and again, research shows that the best resource farmers have are their own voices,” said Grower Services Action Team Chair Brandon Hunnicutt, a farmer in Nebraska very active in using Facebook and Twitter. “Social media takes our stories and allows us to reach further than we ever could before. I know that finding the right balance when crafting a response to a blog post can be tricky. Through this seminar, we will help clear the confusion and provide simple tips that get results.”

This session will focus on the necessary steps to expand your online influence into the blogosphere. It will cover topics such as how to find relevant blogs and news articles, suggestions about when to comment and when to stay silent, best practices for effective commenting, strategies to help engage with the authors of blogs, how to deal with negative feedback, and more.

The webinar takes place at 10:30 a.m. CDT Thursday, May 19. Follow-up webinars are planned for June 16, July 21, August 18, September 15, October 20, November 17 and December 15. Times for these will be announced prior to the webinars. Click here to register or get more information.
