Make Social Media Work for Your Business: Workshop for Entrepreneurial Mums
Thu 15 December 2016, 19:00 – 21:30
Ready to jump on the social media train but not sure how to get started? Or maybe you’ve been spending way too much time on Twitter and Instagram without seeing the results you want?
The last decade has brought a rapid evolution of social media marketing. This new medium can provide businesses of all sizes with a unique opportunity to directly connect and communicate with their current and prospective customers. Social media is here to stay and businesses that embrace it move ahead of competition.
Designed especially for mums with new or growing business, this 2.5 hour interactive workshop will give you a clear understanding of how to use social media for marketing your unique business.
We will cover the key features of main social media platforms, learn how to build your presence on each of them, and finally, how to engage with your target audience to maximise your results.
We then put the learning into practice by working with you to create a plan of action that will help you find focus and purpose for your social media marketing activities. Especially as a mum and business owner, your time, money and energy are precious, limited resources. In this workshop we will look at how to incorporate social media into your current routine so that it works with you.
An interactive session including a mix of professional-led presentation, breakout activities and discussions.
Who Should Attend?

This worksop is relevant if you are a beginner as well as if you are an experienced social media user but feel like your social media activity lacks clear objectives and doesn’t produce tangible results.
