This Twitter for Beginners workshop is for you if you are a small or local business owner who wants to get to grips with using Twitter.
We will talk about what to have as/on your profile and bio. I will explain the different options for posting, attaching photos, video, links, sending Direct Messages, the difference between ReTweeting and Quoting, and Replying and Mentions. You will bring your laptop so we can practice and do all these things together too!
We will look at how hashtags work and chats, and which ones might be useful for you. We will talk about who to follow and what to ReTweet and Tweet about! We might even get onto other more advanced features, like advanced search and Twitter lists.

I'm Wendy Ager, head of Social Media for Purley Festival and 2015 Digital Coach for SurreyWISE. I've worked with many small businesses and local businesses on developing their marketing, especailly incorporating online marketing into their mix. I now manage accounts with thousands of followers but I still remember starting out with zero! Twitter is my favourite social networking site and I'd love to show you how to make it work for you.
I'll share my experience and knowledge of using social media to grow, network and develop your business skills. This workshop is for you if you have been using Twitter and are not sure what you are doing, or know that if you knew more about how to use it that you could use it better, be more effective and time-efficient too!

You'll need to bring your own PC/laptop. Ideally you'll also have your mobile phone with a Twitter app installed.
You need to be able to connect to the Wifi yourself using your device(s) and log into your Twitter Account. I'm afraid I'm not a techical wizard so may not be able to help you with your device(s)!
