On May 30th, CEDA hosted its quarterly Marketing in the Morning event at the Wired Rooster in Caledonia, Minnesota. However, this quarter, southeast Minnesota businesses and community members were not the only ones involved in the informational and networking event. This quarter, CEDA held its first ever Marketing in the Morning Live Streaming event in Blue Earth, Minnesota at the new Giant Welcome Center!
Using Facebook Live, a video projector, screen, and portable speakers, an audience in Blue Earth – which is nearly 150 miles from Caledonia – was able to tune into Sunny Prabhakar and Patrick McNally of CWS Inc.’s presentation. Business owners and community members from the Blue Earth area were able to take part in the morning’s networking event and learn valuable information on content generation for social media, alongside Caledonia’s live audience. Blue Earth’s streaming audience was able to ask questions via CEDA staff who communicated throughout the presentation, hear answers to questions asked at the event, and watch the presenter’s slide show.
