Social Media for Beginners

I didn't realise when I set up my businesses that Social Media would become such an important part of driving them forwards. Comments such as " I don't have time for all that Facebooking" were a common theme I heard at meetings but in fact, nearly all successful small, or large businesses have a well designed presence somewhere on Social Media.

Understanding what, where and how to use it has been something I've learnt by trial and error and something that some of my fiends who also own small businesses have asked me to share with them.

As a qualified teacher sharing information is something I enjoy hugely, so having done two Social Media courses for Physiotherapists in the past,  I am now offering a course to anyone at SLJ who would like to know a bit more. This course will give you the skills to plan a social media strategy, write engaging posts and start to build a following and your brand.

We will use peer discussion to generate ideas which you can take away and implement immediately.

Who is the course for

People who want to use Social Media to advertise their business but either 'don't get round to it' or are scared of doing it wrong. I will teach you what I have learned so you can adapt it to suit you.
