Webinar: Social media for business

April 21, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please note this is an online event

Everyone seems to 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 social commerce 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 valuables sales if you aren’t harnessing the power of the web.

Covering blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and more, this webinar will teach you the basics about the different types of social media and how to use them effectively for your business to engage your customers to increase sales and brand awareness.

Presenters include:
