Social media can work for your business too – all you need are the right strategies and objectives, a knowledge of how to create powerful and effective content, the ability to monitor the results and the tools to analyse – and your Digital Growth Programme social media experts have pieced together this 2 day workshop to enable you to do exactly that. 

This Social Media Workshop will cover:
