Who is the social media course for?

This course is particularly suitable if you are:

  • Looking to learn more about (or are new to) social media or have recently started running your company's Twitter or Facebook
  • Seeking an overview of social media and to learn best practices and different platforms
  • Wanting to learn about best practices and etiquette, and how to find the most suitable platforms for your organisation to achieve its goals

You don't need any prior knowledge but an idea of why you or your company wants to use social media would be useful as the training focuses on how you might best achieve these goals/targets.

If the course seems too basic then you may prefer to attend our advanced social media course which usually takes place the day after this course.
