Understanding Social Media for SMEs - Including Strategy, Hints and Buyer Tips Short Course
Understanding Social Media for SMEs
Using social media for sales conversion in SMEs is a new concept. Lots of companies make the mistake of devolving social media to the apprentice, often without a strategy and sales conversion plan in place.
This would be like giving the sales director’s job to the apprentice, it simply shouldn’t be happening without strategy, guidance, support and sales conversion in mind. During this course, we’ll discuss why social media is more than just part of the marketing function in a company.
Long gone are the days of pumping out sales messaging, discounts and hitting people with social media content that is not original and won’t engage people. This course will cover the importance of social media strategy, measurement and conversion, as well as what makes engaging content that will ‘hit home’ with your target audience and customers.
