Social Media Marketing Masterclass
Members: £65.00 + VAT
Non-members: £99.00 + VAT
09:30 - 13:00 Clickworks

Not winning business from your social media accounts? You’re not alone! This seminar will help attendees understand why ‘typical’ social media marketing doesn’t get results and what needs to be done. 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. Those attending will learn that social media marketing is hugely competitive meaning it can no longer just be about content distribution, more so how to build a loyal, genuine following with those who are likely to become customers.
