Social Media for Organisations: Getting the Basics Right

22 06 2012

On September 4th Ned Potter (@theREALwikiman) and I will be running a day-long course in York for UKeiG called Social Media for Organisations: Getting the Basics Right. I am really looking forward to working with Ned on this!

The idea behind the course comes from the idea that a lot of organisations want to have a presence on Twitter, and a lot of people want to get their organisation using Twitter, but just aren’t sure how to go about it. Our aim with this course is to help the attendees work out what they should be trying, how to get started and if necessary – how to persuade their boss it’s actually a good idea! It will be a combination of making sure people understand what they need to consider at all stages of using social media for an organisation and getting them started on some of the practicalities.

As of writing this, I haven’t actually met Ned! We started chatting on Twitter, and I suggested we could run a joint course, with a ‘follow-on’ course from Ned that goes into more detail on digital marketing, for anyone who already has the bug, or catches it at our course!

If you’d like to find out more about the course (or book onto it!) the details are on the UKeiG site, or you can ask me or Ned on Twitter!
