- The most up to date social media statistics Social media is constantly changing with new updates happening all the time. Chances are an expert will keep on top of the latest news and will be able to advise you on the most up to date changes on each platform. You can read up on the changes yourself, by reading sites likes Mashable, Econsultancy, The Drum and Social Media Examiner – but it’s time consuming to do this and a social media expert will be doing this anyway!
- Top brand case studies and examples One of the best ways to get new ideas and inspiration is to see what other brands in other industries are doing. This is especially useful if you know that your industry is perhaps lacking in social media effectiveness! In our social media workshops we showcase some of the best case studies and plenty of examples of how startups, SMEs and global brands are adopting social media.
- Networking and collaboration Everyone in attendance will be there for the same thing – to learn. Don’t just sit and leave once it’s over. Create valuable in-person relationships by talking with your peers about your strengths and weaknesses. You never know who you could meet from your next client, collaborator or even a new employer. Be sure to bring your business cards, just in case.
Our Founder Alison Battisby often says the best part of a social media course is the chance to share:
Talking to other people and finding out what they have tried, what works best for them, and what to avoid is a great way of learning.
After all social media is so new – you can’t possibly have tried everything so I find it best to talk to people about their experiences.
Any other questions? Do your best to stay in touch with the experts. Take note of their Twitter handle, website and other details so you can continue to learn once the course is over.
