Advanced Social Media Masterclasses

Social media marketing training and video marketing training using the other social networks by Carlton Jefferis of The Digiterati

Advanced social media masterclasses in the “other” social networks

Facebook consumes a large chunk of people’s online time but in a multi-channel, always-connected world, brands need to be present – and relevant – across a range of digital outposts. Knowing what’s “working” RIGHT NOW is paramount. Otherwise you’ll invest time and resource in one method thinking it’s best practice only to then find out that you are completely wrong.

Our series of short courses, ranging from two hours to half a day, will give you a clear understanding of how each of the leading social media platforms can be used for maximum impact, which to select and how they can work together. You will take away actionable steps to help you optimise your social presence whether you’re a relative newcomer to social or a seasoned pro.
