Social Media Masterclass

Social Media – where do we start? 

  • Facebook has one billion users, the equivalent of about one in seven of the world’s population – If it were a country, it would be the third biggest in the world!
  • LinkedIn adds 2 new members every second.
  • Over 1.6 billion people use Twitter to search for something every day.

With only 14% of people trusting advertising but 90% trusting peer recommendation there is no doubt the question is not ‘does your business do social media’. The question is ‘how well does your business do social media’.

This very popular workshop is an expert but practical training that focuses on how you ensure social media supports your business and not take it over. It is delivered non-techy terminology and regularly receives top class reviews for the results it delivers.

Upon completion of this course you’ll have gained the skills to:         

  • Understand what social media is and how to use if for your business
  • Understand how social media fits in to your digital marketing strategy
  • Define clear objectives and create a social media strategy
  • Define the advantages and disadvantages of each main channel
  • Know how to protect your business on social media
