Facebook ventures beyond Silicon Valley

When we think of major companies such as Facebook and Google, we often picture them within the confines of Santa Clara and San Mateo County. Sure they have branch offices here and there, but we still think of them as "somewhere else."

Well, Steven Streight set know...about that. Streight is from Peoria, Illinois, and he recently attended a local event.

Name: Facebook Small Business Boost
Date: August 12, 2014
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Website: Register for this event at

Event Description:
Through a special partnership with local business organizations, Facebook invites you to join experts from Facebook's Small Business Team as they share best practices,success stories, and strategies for how to grow, manage, and understand your small business identity on Facebook. There are over one billion people on Facebook. Learn how to reach the right audience for your business and turn them into loyal customers.

I didn't even know that Facebook did something like this, but they do. And not just in Peoria, Illinois; they recently ventured to Stockton, California. (For those who don't know California's geography, Stockton is not within Silicon Valley.)

Facebook Small Business Team Leader Bess Yount...illustrated the strategies small businesses can utilize Facebook to bring people to company pages with key objectives being: building awareness; bringing people into a physical store; and increasing online sales. "You can reach the right audience and turn them into loyal customers."

And because it's a partnership, attendees can interact with local businesses and organizations.

Sounds like a win-win.
