LIFT startups / #weareyqq is about helping grow our regional economy. LIFT is a business and community economic development initiative led by a group of business people who share a belief: that local talent, our creatives and entrepreneurs, is our biggest “natural resource.” Learning how to leverage social media tools is an important way to support local talent and grow our own businesses. For this YPCV presentation, Hans Peter Meyer (HPM) of LIFT Comox Valley will focus on Twitter. HPM will demonstrate show you how hashtags, lists, and a collaborative approach to content marketing with your own account raises the profile of local businesses, whether they’re LIFT subscribers (LIFT VIPs) or not.

This is a “learn-by-doing” session where you will grow Twitter chops and grow your business. Please bring your smart phone with a Twitter account loaded.

LIFT Comox Valley is owned by Hans Peter Meyer. Hans Peter Meyer (also known as HPM) is a content specialist – writer, photographer, social media creative, and marketing coach. He likes to wear hats, dance tango, mix cocktails – and interview people. Especially people who are making change: innovators, leaders, entrepreneurs.

In 2015 HPM, inspired by working with entrepreneurs in other communities, pulled together a group of like-minded businesses and launched the #WeAreYQQ Project. In 2016 this became LIFT Comox Valley. The goal: to lead, inspire, and fuel talent in the Comox Valley – and beyond.
