  • Course Description

    Daisy Griffith

    Using social media for your business is not as easy as it might seem. Yes, the main tools are technically ‘free’, but the time and effort required to achieve social media success is considerable. So, you need a plan – and not just any plan, but a realistic and achievable one. 

    This one-day course will help you define: exactly what social media can (and can’t) do for you; how you can find the time to do it all in your already extremely busy day; and how you can make sure it’s having results.
    The course is not advanced, but does assume a working knowledge of Facebook and Twitter.
