Social Media Seminar – Review November 2015

Businesses from across Milton Keynes and Bedfordshire were treated to a free masterclass on social media on 11 November 2015, hosted at Cranfield Innovation Centre’s conference suite.

Top Tips

The event was led by social media expert Julia Doherty of Green Umbrella Marketing Limited and looked at how businesses could boost their profile and engage clients using digital media.

A full copy of Julia’s presentation and links to some useful tools are available here. In addition here are our top tips from the event which are also available to download here.

The Big Picture

Social Media is an important and useful tool, but can’t be the be-all and end-all for your marketing strategy. Make sure that your website is your main source of information for clients and that all channels refer back to it

This will also make sure that all your interesting content is included on your website, for search engines to find

Which Tools?

New Social Media roll out at a rate of knots. If you’re pushed for time and resource then assess where your clients and influencers hang-out online and focus on those channels

Green Umbrella recommends spending 30 minutes each day on each social media channel, so if needed be selective. Alternatively, consider resourcing-up your business to manage the demand or employing an agency

Keep Up-to-Date

The tech companies change the rules of the social media game on a regular basis, so make sure you’re able to adapt to the latest updates to tools like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Check out Green Umbrella’s blog for the latest news and advice
