Social media training for beginners in Basingstoke

by Paul Allen on July 24, 2012

Apollo Hotel Basingstoke, home of the Social Media Boot Camp for Business 2012

The Social Media Boot Camp for Business is designed for people who want to learn how to harness the power of social media, but don’t know where to start!

So many business people have said to me that the social media training they have attended to date, always seems to assume a prior level of knowledge. Often delegates feel intimidated to ask questions about the basics, for fear of coming across as unknowledgeable. It’s probably best summed up by this comment from one business person I was talking to recently: “If only someone would put on a course where they start at the very beginning and help me personally to get my accounts set up properly and send me on my way.”

The Social Media Boot Camp is a one day starter course specifically designed for beginners & elementary users. This course assumes a very low level of social networking sophistication & promises to be jargon free!

Running from 9am until 5pm on Friday 17th August 2012 at the Apollo Hotel Basingstoke, this event will focus on the four key platforms, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. Tea/coffee, lunch & course materials are all included in the price.

The course is strictly limited to just 15 places & delegates will have the opportunity to bring laptops to open and/or optimise their accounts in real time with the help of the course tutor.

In the morning the focus is on LinkedIn and Twitter, then after lunch the afternoon is all about Facebook & YouTube. During the day delegates will actually set up their new social media accounts & optimise them to help grow their reputation & business. The course will also look in detail at the Google Keyword Tool and explain why this is a must-have marketing tool for the modern day small business.

Specifically this one day training course will cover:
