What will I learn with your Group Social Media Training Courses?

Social media is a broad topic and can encompass everything from social media advertising, to delivering quality and engaging content. That's why we don't offer a broad-brush approach to social media training.

Before delivering your social media training session, we'll gauge a good understanding of your company objectives and the key outputs that need to be achieved off the back of the session. This will then directly inform what your team will learn in their group social media training course.

Once we have the company objectives firmly in place and a good understanding of what your training session will entail, we will then audit your team via a questionnaire pre-training. This will provide us with valuable insight into your teams' knowledge levels, aspirations and personal objectives as part of the training session. This allows us to tailor the session to individual needs, meaning our group social media training courses are appropriate for those of all different skill sets, from beginner to pro.

Here’s an insight into just some of the skills you can learn as part of our social media sessions.

Brand Awareness

When it comes to brand awareness in contemporary marketing, social media is king. Social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, each act as platforms, to protect your brand messaging to customers old and new. Our group social media training courses can help you and your team harness social media to ensure your brand reaches new levels of awareness.

Content Marketing

Knowing what to put on your social media platforms is no easy task. Whether you're looking to create content that engages new audiences, or content that helps to cement your brand's position as a market leader, knowing what to post and when is key to social media success.

Writing Skills

Writer's block isn't just reserved to poets and novelists. When you're presented with a social media feed and an eager audience ready to consume your content, knowing where to start with your writing can be daunting. With our social media writing skills workshops, we can show how your team can write concise and compelling content for your platforms.

Analytical Skills

One of the significant advantages of social media marketing is how measurable it is. However, to harness this potential and showcase the fantastic business results your team has achieved on social media, there must be a basic understanding of social media's analytics. Our training can teach your team how to analyse effectively and in turn, yield quality business results.

Computer Skills

Becoming familiar with the basics of social media is often overlooked when looking at selecting a social media marketing training course. However, your team must have the basics covered to make a significant impact on your company's social media performance in the long run. Whether a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, there's always plenty of social media hacks that can be taught via our sessions to ensure your team are maximising their time online.

Soft Skills

However, the importance of understanding how to communicate with your audience in a way that resonates shouldn't be overlooked. Via our training, we can help you and your team build a tone of voice for your brand that offers real purpose and helps to engage new and old customers alike.

Customer Service Skills

One of the core purposes of many corporate social media strategies is managing customer service complaints online. While this may seem like a daunting and challenging aspect to social media management for a brand, with correct training and support, it can provide businesses with a valuable way to offer customers the service they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

Management Skills

Social media is only as successful as the team managing the profiles. If you hit the tone right, promote a proactive attitude the management of your profiles and see social media as an opportunity to harness, there's no reason why, with the right training and coaching, your social media management can't be transformational for your business. The key is to upskill your team, so they understand what excellent management online looks like.

Legal Guidelines

Staying within the law on social media can be a real challenge for most companies, mainly because legislation can be so overwhelming. However, most legal problems on social media have often occurred due to simple accidents.

Brands should establish a curation process for user-generated content and obtain the necessary rights and legal permissions for use to avoid infringement. A brand's use of imagery has several associated legal ramifications and rights such as ownership of images and media – we will look a the best practices around this to put your mind at ease.
