About this class

Marketers and managers now realise the need to invest in social marketing. But even if they understand how it works, or why it is useful, most companies can’t afford to have an agency develop content for them.

Starting with a quick overview of social and how it works, the class will cover best practices including tone, use of language, managing content development, hashtags and key messages. Finally, the class will look at ways to be interesting when the message or product is boring (or you’re bored), how to be interactive, getting to know the audience and finding new inspiration.
