Seminar overview

Social Media for Business… everyone's talking about it, but do you feel you've been left behind? Maybe you realise that you should be using it, but aren't sure where to start, or maybe you're just plain scared and really don't want to start..?

You might be completely new to Social Media, not sure of  the difference between a tweet or a post, a pin, poke, circle or connection request; maybe not even sure of the difference between  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat or Google+, let alone know which ones you should be using … Well, we can help.

The UK4Business Social Media for Business: Absolute Beginners training course will give you a great introduction to social media, with an overview of each of the main platforms & some great tips and tricks; we’ll walk you through registering with each one step-by-step and give you the confidence to get started.

Everyone has been at exactly the same stage as you at some point; we'll help you move forward knowledgeably & confidently, and with on-going support and advice, too!

Please note:

For our Social Media for Business Absolute Beginners training course, no-one is too inexperienced and no question too stupid; all we ask is that you are able to use a computer for basic tasks.

On the day, if you would like to set-up your profiles and send your first tweets and posts etc, you will need access to an email account and a laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device (we can arrange a loan machine if required). Alternatively, you can leave everything behind and just watch & listen - we don’t mind.

Your industry or business-sector?

The main social media platforms have become critical tools for both the B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) markets, so our ‘Social Media for Business: Absolute Beginners’ workshop training seminar should be of value regardless of your industry or sector. However, if you are uncertain whether it will be suitable for you, or if you have any other queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us prior to booking.
