Social media training options
Here is some more information about the training we provide our clients, but remember, we will pick and choose exactly the modules you require. We provide bespoke one to one and small group training nationwide and from our company HQ in Birmingham.
Create a solid grounding in the relevant social platforms. We’ll help optimise your profiles to create the best possible first impression before looking at a content and interaction strategy. This may focus on a particular platform or a combination based on your business and goals and will help you manage your own social media presences.
LinkedIn is an incredibly powerful tool for building a network and generating leads, especially in B2B businesses. Our LinkedIn training clients include Lloyds Banking Group, Deutsche Bank and British Athletics as well as celebrities, MPs and agents across the globe. We’ll assess your goals and current network and build a strategy as well as studying the functionality of the platform. Sessions can be delivered on a one-to-one or one-to-small group (up to 12) basis and usually take a couple of hours or a half day. We tailor sessions for the beginner, intermediate and advanced individual and groups. More on LinkedIn training.
Twitter is the most underused, undervalued and misunderstood social media tool. In fact, only 12% of marketers regard it as their most important social marketing tool although Twitter is widely regarded as the only true social media platform.
Our social media training can provide you with an appraisal on your current and potential social presence as well as ideas on content and strategy using the necessary social media platforms. Competitor analysis is also incredibly useful, as is a look at contributing marketing efforts such as blogging and email campaigns. We offer a free ‘taster’ social media audit which is a great place to start and we can also do a full social media audit.
Social media coaching
Coaching contracts are proving increasingly popular with small businesses. This option provides the best of both the social media management and training worlds. Our trainer will work closely with you to improve your knowledge and expertise whilst one of our social media managers helps look after your social presence. This means you have your accounts expertly managed from the word “go” and can learn all the tricks of the trade.
Coaching typically consists of an initial training session followed by a combination of management hours and ongoing support on a weekly or monthly basis. The coaching period lasts as long as you require to feel confident you can take your marketing activity in-house.
