New Training Course: Introduction to Social Media for Media Professionals

I’m pretty excited about this!  Starting next month, on Wednesday 10th February to be precise, I will be running a new social media training course aimed squarely at the media industry in the North West.

The new Introduction to Social Media for Media Professionals course, designed specifically for digital media professionals considering use of social media within media projects, builds on Real Fresh TV’s success with the UK’s longest running ‘social media for beginners’ course: the Social Media Starter Course.

Along with an assessment of workable strategies for developing multi-platform content, the course concludes with an introduction to the rigours and demands of creating content for multiple platforms.

Attendees even requested a more hands-on follow up course, the Learning Social Media By Doing Course which has since been developed.

Here’s some of the fantastic feedback the Social Media Starter Course has received:
