Social Media- You’ve got a Social Media account… what next?

Date: 12th March 2019
Location: Media City
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Theme: People, Skills & Talent, Business Strategy

Sorry this event has already taken place - please see our forthcoming events list

The purpose of this Workshop is not to persuade you to use social media, or use more of it - the aim is to provide you with the information and latest evidence to allow you to decide whether social media is right for your business, and if so which platforms are best suited for your customers.

The Workshop provides the latest facts, figures and research on Social Media and how you can use it to benefit your business and make it part of your strategic approach to business growth, rather than just something you have to do. We’ll also show you how to understand the unwritten rules of social networking and use it to create powerful connections with your customers and partners.

Feedback from last Workshop:

If you are starting a business, even if you think you know everything then go, cos you don’t. Lots of useful ways to think & present stuff you’ve struggled with. Highly recommend

Loved today & learnt a lot from the session. The delivery of the programme was very friendly and not strained – very relaxed. The food and location was also top class 😊

Very clear, understandable – helpful, learnt a lot and will use ideas to create hopefully successful website 😊 Great time! Thank you

Great introduction into the world of Social Media. No rights or wrongs but lots of guidance about possible strategies depending on customer/end-user profiles. Certainly gives us some food for thought about our future Digital Marketing + Social Media campaigns

Interesting insight into Social Media & the different approaches that may be needed to efficiently target who you want to.

Good introduction to Social Media, Allan from Ruby Star delivered excellently very easy to understand and engage with.

Very informative, interesting
