Passionate Social Media Marketing for Business Success
Members: £65.00 + VAT
Non-members: £99.00 + VAT
09:30 - 13:00 Clickworks

Rather than focusing on the basics of how to use social media channels, we will cover the theory of focusing on ‘why’ your company is in business and an understanding of how a passionate company ethos portrayed on social media can bring huge success, a theory which has been tried and tested by
the likes of Apple across their social media and distribution platforms.

Social media can help your business achieve a higher level of brand awareness, enhanced customer service, deeper engagement with potential customers and a broader reach to your target audience. With an ever-growing list of social media
platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and more it can seem like a never-ending task. During the seminar we will look at which social media channels will perform best for your business and how to leverage your time to ensure maximum engagement for minimum effort.

Social Media marketing is not just about content distribution, but how to build a loyal, genuine following with those who are
likely to become customers. Rather than spreading duplicate content thinly over numerous social media platforms, attendees
will understand which social media platforms will yield the most success and doubledown on these to maximise results.
