An essential workshop offering practical advice for businesses, start-ups and freelancers on writing effective social media updates. Why outsource when you can learn how to do it brilliantly yourselves?

You'll find out how to:

  • Build your community with Facebook updates that attract likes, comments and shares
  • Get your tweets retweeted and see your content spread
  • Craft news and blog titles that people will want to read and share.
  • Talk your audience's language
  • Get the timing right
  • Avoid common errors that have left Twitter celebs with egg on their faces.

You'll have plenty of time to ask questions, so make a note of any problems you have to do with writing for social media and we'll tackle them together. We love a challenge!

Who will benefit from this workshop?

  • Start-ups and small business who want to stand out from the crowd
  • Brands who want to use social media but don’t know what to say
  • Organisations who want to bring clarity to their social media campaigns.

Practical advice from genuine experts. Not gurus. Or ninjas.

The workshop is hosted by editors Sue Keogh and Christine Cawthorne, who between them have produced web content and social media campaigns for the BBC, ITV, AOL, Yahoo!, Toshiba, Paul Smith, Pizza Hut and a host of small businesses, charities and non-profits.
