Social media plays a vital role within the development of a business. It is an extension of the company and allows people to engage with their favourite brands and companies – keeping up to date with their latest news, trends and activity!
Although many brands and companies have already gotten to grips with (and run ahead with) social media and have developed their online presence, there are many who are still struggling to understand WHY, WHAT and HOW to use social media for their business. OR there are also a LOT of people who THINK they understand social media but in reality, using social media for business is not the same as using it for your personal life…
That’s why we run Social Media Training Workshops at our office in Honley – so you can get to grips with social media and learn how to use it for your business yourself.
Have you ever asked one or more of these common questions:
- Why is social media important?
- What social media platforms should I be on?
- How much time should I spend on social media?
- What is a hashtag?
Have you ever made (or heard anyone) make the following statements:
- I don’t need social media
- Social media is a waste of time
- I don’t want to open my business up to negativity on social media
- I just don’t get social media!
Well, believe it or not, we get asked these questions and hear these statements all the time! Why not book onto the Social Media Strategy and Branding Workshop which is a great introduction to social media for business. It covers the what, why and how of social media platforms as well as outlining the mind-blowing statistics about the very people who are on there. This will give you an idea of what social media platforms are most appropriate for your business (don’t make the mistake of trying to cover them all at once!)
Then, if you want to learn more about a particular platform you can either book onto another workshop or book some 1-to-1 time with Janet or Esther for a more tailored training session.
The workshops have been successful so far with various people coming from different business backgrounds. From sole traders to limited companies, most SMEs or micro-businesses. It’s always good to meet new people and we love to help people develop their skills to grow their presence online through their social media.
