Following on from Get a Blog! and Read my Blog!, this is the third and final workshop in The Social Series.
This one day participatory workshop will focus on how to build better web presence by exploiting social media tools and networks. Whatever your business, there are opportunities for harnessing the power of social media.
What we cover
We will explore the social media space and look at the range of tools available for promoting your business, project or community online. We will offer an overview of the Social Media / Web2.0 space and look at detailed examples of how other people have harnessed social media. We will cover working with bloggers, using youtube, flickr, and events promotion services. We will also look at developing niche seed communities to spark off interest in a new product or service. We will explore ideas for key industries (based on the participants goals), and focus on simple tricks to get started immediately.
Importantly, this workshop is for participants who want to work as part of an eclectic group to explore how each other can benefit from social media. The workshop will be run as a collaborative session, and outcomes will be made available to the group and in social spaces online. Participants will come away with an understanding of whats out there and how that might be applied to their business. The workshop reinforces the open and collaborative nature of the social media space.
Who should attend
This workshop is for people who want to learn more about the social media landscape, issues and trends. We welcome people who want to participate, discuss, share ideas and collaborate.
