Effective Social Networking for Business – Workshop

Effective Social Networking for Business – Workshop

(Syndication, Amplification and Moderation)

Learn how to use social media for your business in a friendly constructive environment, with support from experienced HBN members. Bring your laptop/tablet/mobile along for a practical on using social networks more effectively as part of your business. The benefit of social media for business is the ability to reach out to a wider audience who can become your ambassadors and potentially clients. Social media networking is all about engagement and conversation. During this workshop you can hear how others use social media and gain assistance in either trying them out for the first time or sharing additional advice and experience from other users.

The 45 minute to 1hour long workshop will be in three parts

  1. A demonstration of how to take an article of interest (for example an existing blog) to a wider audience and disseminate it to contacts through a variety of social media. Likely examples will be Linkedin, Google+ and Twitter.
  2. The practical session where you, with the help of experienced users, apply the knowledge gained; to connect with people and exchange information of interest
  3. A concluding session where experience gained in the practical is shared

As an additional positive outcome from the workshop, you will find yourself expanding your contacts in your preferred social media. The moderators for the event are Richard Wishart, Delivery Management and Dr Chris Thomas, Milton Contact Ltd, helped by HBN members familiar with using social networking tools

Social media are now increasingly an important part of business activity. Not using them could be a distinct disadvantage in today’s markets. So, bring your laptop/tablet/mobile along for a useful practical on using social networks more effectively as part of your business, in a friendly supportive environment.
