Why social media?

If your business doesn’t have an online presence – where most people are searching for information these days – you are going to be passed over for your competitor who is online. Whether you have a superior product or not, if you can’t be found on a quick Google or Facebook or Twitter search, you might as well close your doors. Even if you find that most of your new business is as a result of word-of-mouth referrals, don’t for a second think that those potential new clients haven’t checked out your website or your Facebook page before calling you up.

Participating in conversations online – using social media channels – is a fantastic way for you to introduce your brand to a wider audience. And adding social media to your existing marketing strategy isn’t difficult.

Social media training for business owners and their marketing teams is a new offering from Rubio as a result of a growing demand from our existing clients. Bespoke sessions, tailored to the requirements of each business or team, can be booked for between 4 and 6 delegates per four-hour session. Larger groups or more advanced teams can also be accommodated by arrangement.

What to expect from basic social media training:

  • An introduction to the different social media channels available to businesses
  • A look at budgeting and the return on investment of social media as part of an existing marketing strategy
  • A breakdown of social media jargon, tools and insights
  • An overview of paid-for advertising options
  • The starting point for establishing tone and building your brand’s dictionary
  • An opportunity to ask questions and discuss the strategies which will best suit your unique situation

Take away:

  • A “How To” on creating the right social media strategy for your business
  • An action plan that you can introduce into your existing marketing strategy immediately
  • A resource list for easy reference and further reading
