About the course

Social media is a powerful marketing tool that will help you to grow your business, reinforce your brand and increase your presence on the internet.   This is a busy afternoon of comprehensive and practical instruction to show you how to make the most of LinkedIn, Facebook Pages, Twitter and Pinterest – plus Hootsuite for easy social media management.

For open sessions, we stick to a maximum of ten people per group so that you get the individual attention you need to develop a complete presence across the Internet.  For one-to-one and team sessions working just with your business, you can include up to four employees at no extra cost.

It’s informal, interactive and fun.  And it’s all presented in jargon-free Plain English!
