Creating and Planning Social Media Content That Stands Out

This 4-hour workshop is taking place over four consecutive days on 6th – 9th July, 9.30am-10.30am.

The workshop is aimed at trading businesses who have an existing social media presence but are struggling to come up with ideas for content, getting little engagement on posts and are not achieving business leads through their social media. Packed full of tips, insights and tools for creating content that will increase visibility, you will learn how to develop engaging social media content that attracts new customers.

The workshop will cover:

  • Identifying who the target customers are and what information is required in order to write meaningful posts
  • Planning content to fit in with your wider business objectives
  • What makes good content on social media
  • The do's and don'ts of posting content
  • Engaging content ideas
  • How to use Canva - a simple free tool to create interesting images and videos for posts
  • How to use hashtags for maximum impact

Delegates will leave with a social media content plan for the next few months, as well as the enthusiasm and knowledge to execute it!

To gain the most value from this workshop, delegates are expected to already have a good understanding of their value proposition, target market and ideal customers. If you need support with this, please contact your existing Business Development Manager or the team Sessions will be interactive and participant engagement will be encouraged throughout.
