Step by Step Social Media

Content
What is Social Media? and how does social media marketing compare to traditional marketing? Do you know the difference between a social media strategy and a social media campaign? What are the must-do steps of a successful campaign using Facebook, Twitter and other social networking tools?

The use of social networking tools has grown over the last 5 or 6 years to the extent that not only will we investigate Return on Investment (ROI) of marketing dollars in online media but also examine the Cost of Inaction (COI) of not being involved. By becoming familiar with case studies, statistics, influencer monitoring and measurement, marketing professionals can maximisie their online engagement with customers.

We specifically look at Listening and Monitoring, Creating Social Content, Blogger Outreach and Social Media Press Releases, Promotional Tools and Measurement. There are also opportunities to bring your questions
