This informal half day workshop is for business people who haven’t ever dipped their toe in the social media world.
It will go right back to basics to give a sound understanding of what social media is, the different types and an overview of when it can be useful to support business growth and reputation management. Cynics are welcome to this session which aims to demystify social media, dispel myths, bust jargon and help businesses take the first step to deciding how social media would be of value to them.
This event is led by Sara Pugh, Managing Director of Penryn-based marketing and design company Eight Wire, which also provides Export Cornwall clients with complementary 1:1 professional mentoring, for up to three hours, to drill down and address specific social media related issues or needs of a business.
This workshop is free of check, please check your eligibility before booking.
