Introducing social media for small business

December 17, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free, booking required

Everyone seems to be talking about social media these days, but how can Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and blogging actually help your business?

The potential to reach new customers through social media has never been greater and is constantly growing. With £5.67 billion attributed to online purchases annually and website visitors being ten times more likely to make a purchase if they are directed from social media, you could be missing out on valuable promotion and sales.

Neil Infield will cover some of the key social media platforms, with tips on how to use them effectively to engage your customers to increase sales and brand awareness.You will be shown how to develop a social media strategy and see a variety of free software tools to help you along the way.
