Workshop: Getting Started on Social Media
"Leverage your message with a social media presence."
Participants will learn how to develop a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linked In, and blogs. Participants will identify their social media goals and be given recommendations regarding the social media outlet that best matches their goals.
During the workshop, participants will open a Twitter account, learn to use its features, find relevant information, develop a base of followers, and produce content. Participants will also learn where they can submit guest blog posts for maximal visibility and tips for writing blog posts. Time management strategies will be discussed.
Participants should be equipped with computers and wifi for this hands-on workshop. If needed, laptops are available. No previous experience with social media is necessary for this workshop. Individuals who are already very active on social media may find this workshop too basic.
