Are you currently using social media to get your name and freelance profile out there but not seeing the results you want? Are you just getting started with social media and not sure what to do? Social Media is more than just another channel, tactic or public billboard. Social media is a critical part of your marketing and communication plan. So how do you harness social media to grow your influence, find new opportunities and engage with your potential clients to create a strong following?
This will be a hands-on workshop, where we will cover:
- Setting up, optimizing and utilizing your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts so you can create content that gets more exposure and results
- How to build an engaging following on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
- How to best use hashtags, contests, ads and promotions, and
- The best practices and the do’s, don’ts, tips, tricks, advice and strategies to manage, maintain and grow your following.
During this workshop we will be inviting a few participants to share their social media accounts, for a live and interactive discussion on ways to improve their online marketing.
This workshop will be led by Katt Stearns, the founder of Katt Stearns Consulting. She has worked with numerous small and medium sized organizations helping them develop marketing strategies that help them share their stories and grow their organizations. Katt is the recipient of the 2015 Canadian Digital Marketer of the Year Award and was also nominated for the 2014 British Columbia Small Business Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year. You can connect with Katt on Twitter at @KattStearns.
