About the Workshop:
Did you tweet today? Facebook page or group? LinkedIn? Youtube or Vimeo? To pin or not to pin? The proliferation of digital media can be overwhelming. Many people and organizations hesitate to join the digital revolution, preferring instead to stick to good old face to face contact or a basic website. Nothing wrong with that. However, if you are interested in exploring how to amplify your message and goals, digital media provides a plethora of nearly cost-free options to tell your story to the people you want to reach. In this workshop, we will explore the brave new world of digital space and think strategically about how to sculpt the perfect ‘virtual’ presence for you.
Participants will learn to:
Build a deeper understanding of social media and options for (re)presenting yourself
Learn how companies and organizations are using the digital space to build interactive relationships with potential and actual members and clients
Create a plan for your next step forward in the digital domain that includes:
- Creating a map that charts your specific path forward through the digital terrain
- Developing strategies to deploy your time and skills most efficiently while amplifying your story so that it resonates best with your target audiences
- Defining your social media presence plan, investment so these are consistent with your goals and values
