Beginners Guide to Social Media

Suitable for beginners, these two workshop sessions will provide an introduction to some of the largest and most active social media platforms available to raise the visibility of your business.

Please note: While we recommend that you register for both sessions you may book on to the morning or afternoon sessions separately.


Morning Session - Facebook & Twitter (10.00am to 12.30pm):

Learn about two of the largest social media platforms and how you can promote your business effectively on them to increase your visibility and build relationships with your customers.

You will be taken through step-by-step how to set up and manage an organisation page for your business on Facebook, learn how to send a ‘tweet’ including photos, retweet, follow people and set up lists.

You will also look at best practice for organisations in order to make your customers advocates of your business.


Afternoon Session - Instagram & Pinterest (1.30pm to 4.00pm):

We all know that it is vital to be using strong visuals in our social media, and these two platforms thrive on quality imagery. They are also both storming ahead in popularity so don’t miss out on utilising them as part of your digital strategy. Traditionally seen as places to view lovely images, many businesses don’t understand how to use them strategically.

Instagram is increasing in popularity with businesses with the introduction of business profiles, analytics and Instagram stories. We will show you how to use Instagram as a business and how to reach a wider audience. Get tips on what hashtags to be using and how to engage with other accounts.

Pinterest is more of a search engine than a social platform, but many people don’t understand how this can help them. We will show you how to use Pinterest for your business and how to increase your reputation and popularity. Learn about ‘rich’ pins and making the most of your business account.


Please note: To be eligible to attend these free workshops you need to be based in one of the following local council areas: East Devon, Mid Devon, Teignbridge or Exeter.

If you are outside of these areas please call us on 0800 592 872 before making a booking.
