I’m going to be presenting a Twitter for business workshop at the January Likeminded Network meeting.
It’s on 29th Jan, 7.30pm at The Creative Exchange in St Neots, Cambs. Entry is just a fiver and you can sign up here.
Here’s more about the event from Chrissy Brown, chair of the Likeminded Network:
Helen is one of our die hard Likeminded Ladies and is going to share her wealth of experience of social media, in particular Twitter.
New to Twitter – this meeting is for you. A seasoned tweeter – then come and share your valuable experience and help out your Likeminded friends! You are never too old to learn new tricks.
Helen has given a summary below of what her talk will cover:
Twitter can be an effective tool for promoting your business but it’s not without its challenges, such as working out how to use it as a beginner then making sure it doesn’t suck up too much of your time later on.
Everyone is in a different place with Twitter, some of us are complete beginners and others have been using it for years. In this session we aim to offer something useful to everyone, no matter how long they have been using it.
This session will include:
* A presentation on how to use Twitter to promote your business. This will include how to decide if Twitter is right for connecting with your market, how it could fit into your wider marketing strategy and the tools you can use to make the best use of your time.
* A chance for network members to share their Twitter success stories and pass on what has worked well for them. (And if the talk gets too technical for beginners, Helen will step in and explain!)
* After the main session there will be a hands-on mini-session at the end for people who are new to Twitter, including how to set up an account, how to send and reply to tweets, retweeting, hashtags and searching. If you would like to bring your own device to practice on (iPad with internet access, Smartphone, laptop etc) then you’re very welcome to do so. Experienced tweeps will be able to network in another room during this mini-session.
It would be great to see you there! And if you don’t live in the Cambs/Beds area but have a friend that does, please do tell them about this event.
