Join Susan for this half-day workshop in collaboration with the Creative Quarter to learn how to make the most of social media for your business.

LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other social media sites are extremely powerful marketing tools that you can use to grow your business. There is a right way to use them, and a wrong way, and successful businesses need to know the difference. LinkedIn is one of the UK’s largest social networking sites, yet few business owners understand how they can use it successfully as a selling tool. Twitter may appear to be as simple as sending 280 character messages, but the real power is understanding how your customers interact with Twitter, and how to position your business using everything it has to offer.

During this information-rich session, Susan Hallam will provide practical and proven strategies for generating profitable business using social media, including:

  • How to choose the right social media tools for your business needs
  • How to build your brand visibility and position yourself as an expert in your field
  • How to use social media tools for just 15 minutes a day and still get great results
  • How to use social media to improve your Google rankings

With more than 30 years’ experience working in the digital industry, Susan Hallam is a leading influencer in the Internet world. She is a practicing digital marketing consultant, a public speaker, and Managing Director of Hallam, one of the UK’s leading digital agencies. Susan was awarded an MBE for services to entrepreneurship and innovation in the Queen’s Honors 2018.
