To celebrate the success of our main education event earlier this year, I thought I would write a blog post detailing what attendees can expect from our upcoming sessions at The Capitol Theatre and report back on our first training day.

B2B – Be Social Media Star, Twitter and LinkedIn – February 28th

Be a Social Media Star

This was our first session of 2014 and we were delighted to welcome 11 attendees – mainly local Horsham folk but with a few from further afield. One person came by train from Ashford!

The session was a resounding success and we broke the time down into three main sections:

First of all we shared some powerful facts based around social media and its incredible growth and use. Hannah Brookes then talked about why knowing your audience is vital and the importance of having a digital marketing plan. This section was finished off with a guide to creating your own plan.

I then covered LinkedIn – how to create the perfect profile, how to use the advanced people search functionality and leverage its amazingly targeted results. We also looked at LinkedIn company pages in this section.

After a short break, Hannah explored the world of Twitter before finishing off with some tools to use for scheduling and reporting.

We had some great feedback from the day and look forward to seeing some of the attendees on other courses. We’ll also be running this one again in June.

Here are some of the things you can expect to learn on our other courses, the dates and links to book online!
