HAMLET — Richmond Community College’s Small Business Center will hold a free seminar on social media marketing strategies on Nov. 18 at the Cole Auditorium located on the college’s main campus from 6 to 9 p.m.

Small business and entrepreneurial start-ups will learn the best ways to promote their small business through major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest and Instagram.
