The Small Business Guide to Effective Social Media Marketing

I’m excited to be presenting this workshop for the LEAD programme at the University of Salford.

I’m a recent delegate of this innovative programme of leadership and management training for small business owners (graduated yesterday) and can’t recommend it highly enough!  It changed my life, as I blogged after attending a Ruth Badger Masterclass on sales put on by the programme.

The Small Business Guide to Effective Social Media Marketing

Date: Thursday 1 July 2010
Time: 8.30am registration, 9.00am – 10.30am workshop
Venue: Rayleigh Room, Faraday House, University of Salford (Building 18 on page 3 of this campus map)

LEAD is specifically aimed at companies with up to 20 employees and is designed to equip owner-managers with the skills and abilities they need to increase profits, capitalise on new opportunities and make the most of their existing resources, both internal and external.

Since its inception, over 150 business owner-managers have benefited from this 10 month leadership programme and there are a further 230 delegates currently in the process of graduating.

We would like to invite you to come along to The Small Business Guide to Effective Social Media Marketing, which is an insight-packed workshop that takes you through the 7 steps for building and maintaining an effective marketing presence on free social media platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and blogs.

According to the BBC, the average British web user spends nearly ‘one day a month online.’  The lion’s share of that time is spent on social network sites or blogs, which accounts for nearly a quarter of users’ time online.    Isn’t it time you learnt how to grow and market your business or organisation on these free social networks?

At our event you will learn how to reduce marketing costs by generating qualified leads using social media marketing.   Find out how to develop and action a social media strategy for your business that will work.

There is more to social media marketing than trying to simply sell your services online.  Those you engage with need to know, like and trust you; you need to adopt a different approach to be successful on today’s visibly social web.  We will share case studies of SMEs who have successfully adopted social media marketing and explain what they are doing to get results.

This workshop is developed and delivered by Chi-chi Ekweozor, director of Real Fresh TV, a social media training and implementation consultancy.  Real Fresh TV helps organisations use social media to develop mutually beneficial relationships with consumers that create competitive advantage.   The company also provides innovative and current training on social media marketing.  Clients include T-Mobile, PUMA, Arts Council England, Manchester Digital Development Agency and Contact Theatre Manchester.
