Join us to understand the basics of how Twitter works, how to create your profile and content to really engage with your stakeholders be they supporters, funders, beneficiaries or peers, and integrate it with your other activities and communications tools.
This workshop is ideal for any member of staff / volunteer who wants to find out how their organisation could use Twitter. No prior knowledge is needed. The course will start from the basics of setting up an account and starting to use the tool, and so it is not appropriate for someone who has been using Twitter effectively for a while.
One of the fastest growing social media platforms in the world, Twitter can help you directly engage with new audiences, gain supporters and share links, resources and information. If you are considering Twitter for your group this practical course with hands-on exercises and discussion, will teach you the basics of setting up your profile, deciding who to follow and why and starting conversations that count.
By the end of the session you will:
- understand what defines social media and how people are using it every day, particularly Twitter
- start planning your Twitter strategy
- create an organisation profile on Twitter
- understand the anatomy of Twitter - @ # retweet etc
- know what to talk about and how to write and respond to tweets (including adding links & photos)
You will leave this course with a profile set up for your organisation and the knowledge and confidence to start direct conversations with your audiences and gain new supporters. A comprehensive handout, plus follow up support will be available to all attendees.
