Social media strategy: growing your online audiences

Venue – the Guardian, Scott Room, Kings Place, London

Social media has been recognised for some time as a legitimate means of business communication, and realising the importance of this medium, the Guardian is pleased to announce a new social media seminar, 'Social media strategy: growing your online audiences'

As social media becomes ubiquitous,  online spaces are becoming more increasingly noisy marketplaces. With trust in advertising at 14% and peer to peer recommendation at 90% having an engagement strategy in which you grow and converse with your audiences is becoming more and more critical.

This workshop, targeted for communicators, will help you to understand:

  • How do you set your organisational and campaign objectives for social media?
  • How do you encourage greater engagement in your online footprint?
  • How do you grow your online audiences so that your messages have a greater reach and you can take advantage of social shareability?

Led by Guardian digital strategist Tiffany St James, the seminar aims to answer these questions and more, giving you an audience-engagement strategy that helps achieve your business, project or campaign objectives.

  Who should attend?

  • Communication managers in the private, public or third sector.
  • Managers of small to medium-sized businesses, who want to grow their online audience

 Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the seminar commencing.For more information, call 0203 353 4059 or email
