for its signature hands-on training,
Focus on Local: Community-Based Social Media Marketing.

  • A Main Street or Elm Street program
  • A Chamber of Commerce 
  • A similar organization with a membership base

Flexible hosting opportunities

We know that no membership organization is created equally. We’ll work with you to develop a plan to host the Focus on Local: Community-Based Social Media Marketing training that works for you.

In addition to a host sponsor, other sponsorship opportunities are available:

  • Community Sponsor: This sponsorship covers expenses like room rental fees, snacks and more, allowing us to keep ticket prices lower so that more businesses in your community can attend.
  • Love Local Sponsor: Help participants #FocusonLocal in your community by including coupons to your business, branded materials or other take-home goodies.

Host a Training


Managing a diverse network of over 400 rural businesses and organizations from the Pennsylvania Wilds demands that our nonprofit looks at professional opportunities that are relevant to them all. Social media is a commonality when evaluating tools that many are already leveraging and that they could gain significant value in mastering. That's why PA Wilds Center partnered with Ellen at Hello Social Co. to offer a Focus on Local Social Media Workshop in the fall of 2021. It was a great success, with participants of all social media skill levels coming away with a new vision for how they could leverage social media for their own growth. We look forward to continuing to partner with Hello Social Co. to offer the program again in the near future.
