You’ve thought about what social networks to use for your organization, and you’re ready to take the next step. Where do you go from there?
The first part of this workshop will give you a closer look at the popular social media networks – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+. We will explore the benefits of using each, how other organizations are marketing with them, and some dos and don’ts of each channel. You’ll also get tips on how to tell if your social media activity is working.
The second part of this workshop focuses on best social media practices. Do you know that 43% of small businesses dedicate six or more hours per week to social media? While it’s important to engage for social visibility and key connections online, we all want to do more in less time. This session will help you save time and get back to what you love to do – running your business or organization. Join us and learn the latest time savers and best practices.
Participants will learn:
• Tips for saving up to ten hours a week managing your social media
• Simple ways to find usable, relevant content for your posts
