The Traill County Economic Development Commission invites Traill County businesses and interested individuals to a virtual lunch and learn event Tuesday, Aug. 11 from noon to 1 p.m.

The lunch and learn session will be a deep dive into social media marketing for businesses, and will feature Taylor Corbett of AE2S Communications in Grand Forks, N.D.

“Our office has worked with Taylor several times over the course of the past few years,” said Jim Murphy, Traill County EDC executive director. “Taylor’s enthusiasm and knowledge of social media have really helped us with several projects. We are very pleased she agreed to help us pass some of that along to our local Traill County businesses.”

Murphy encourages representatives from local businesses to attend. “More than 70 percent of Americans check their Facebook page daily,” Murphy said. “It is a tool for businesses that should be embraced and an excellent platform to launch from for other social media – like Instagram and Twitter.”

The Aug. 11 session is expected to include information about setting up essential Facebook page components for your business, interacting with customers online and using ads and boosts to help maximize your business’ paid online presence.

The session will be hosted online via a Zoom conference, with the link being posted to Traill County EDC’s Facebook page ( the morning of the event.

The event is free to attend, and no preregistration is required.

Corbett, a digital media and digital design strategist, has presented on social media and communications at various conferences in the Upper Midwest.

She manages and deploys social media campaigns and evaluates analytics for municipalities, utilities and economic development agencies. She also has experience in community branding, integrated marketing communication plans, and digital design.
