Social networking – the latest marketing tool
Morning session (9am-12 noon)
Social networking has redefined the way we interact with one another. Coupled with the rise of mobile computing, the social media gives you instant access to a wide group of people and enables you to broadcast your experiences and your product to the world.
For businesses, social networking—judiciously used—can help build your brand and assist you in developing a loyal client or customer base. Social networking is not just for big business, of the three million business pages on Facebook, more than 50 percent of them are owned by small businesses.
This course will provide you with insights as to how Australian businesses are using social media and how you can harness social networking tools to build your own business. You will develop the communication skills needed to integrate social media into your marketing and CRM strategies and manage your brand online.
