First in the series of Social Media Workshops with Desk Village Hurstpierpoint last Friday.

I love meeting local businesses owners and hearing about their individual businesses – they are always fascinating. It takes a lot of work and effort to get a business started and a marketing plan is always a key part of its success.
Social media is imperative for small businesses. Its very simple to use and is very very cost effective. By creating a social media plan and strategy from the start you can be targeted and effective with your communications and collaborations. Its vital to not “just post” .
You need to think about your content, tone of voice, your message, your audience, your platforms, your timing, your competition…its a long list. However we covered a fair amount of this in this Introductory session and I look forward to the next workshop on Friday 28 June, entitled “Instagram for business”.
