You’ll explore the size, scale and importance of social media, how it can work well and how to fix things when they go wrong. There will be lots of opportunity to discuss how you currently use social media and give you a chance to step back and really examine the best platforms to work with.

The course will cover:

• What is social media?
• How can you use social media to engage with people
• What to include in a social media strategy
• How to enhance your marketing with social media
• Creating a social media policy
• Assessing risks & opportunities
• Creating an ‘action capture sheet’ to start you on your new social media journey.
