NB - This is an interactive masterclass and we try to recreate an interactive classroom environment, where the sessions are live via the zoom video conferencing platform and all delegates are expected to participate in the discussions. Feedback from other delegates have stated that the interaction and shared learning experience was one of the most valuable parts of the session.
Take control of your social media so it does not control you - spend less time on your social media and get better results by understanding the channels that reach your customers.
These sessions are designed for those who are using social media currently but want to improve the results, or if you are just setting up your business accounts. We will look at where you are now, and where you want to be, who you are trying to reach - and whether social media is the channel to reach them - and the right messaging to use and develop a content planner that removes the “what to post today?” headache.
Session 1 – Thursday 18th November 2021 (10:00 – 11:30): We will identify your aspirations and understand that ad hoc use of social media is not the way to use these channels. Social media it is not the destination, but it is just part of the business journey and it could deliver for your business.
Session 2 – Thursday 25th November 2021 (10:00 – 11:30): We will profile target audience(s), understand what they look like, what their barriers to purchase might be. Identify which social media platform (if any) your audience is using and that the messaging for the audiences might be different.
Session 3 – Thursday 2nd December 2021 (10:00 – 11:30): We will look at Brand Guidelines – the importance of these and how to write your own. You will develop a planner to take away (and develop further) based on your target audiences, messaging and objectives and understand what makes good content from trusted sources, types of content, engagement and insights on different platforms.
