Session 4

This session covers why business cannot ignore using Facebook – your customers, competitors, suppliers, employees, partners and future customers are all using Facebook!

We also discuss why many businesses struggle to get real results from their Facebook marketing efforts after getting started on Facebook.

Keeping with theme “staying connected real-time” we discuss why Twitter is a powerful social network with a wider audience than on any other social network, and why the public nature of Twitter means that you can find and connect with prospects who might not be following you on other social networks. We also discuss why Twitter can be one of the most difficult social networks to understand.

We wrap up the session discussing the third biggest social network, Pinterest, which is emerging as a powerful tool for businesses to market online. Should you be using Pinterest? The best part is that Pinterest doesn’t require daily updates and lots of time to be effective, and show how to optimize strategic keywords that can get your pins and profile noticed.

We start off covering the areas of how to build up a database, how to use an email newsletter effectively, and how to build a relationship and effectively interact with subscribers.

We then explore why many basic marketing tactics remain relevant today, and how you should be using your existing communications and traditional marketing to encourage your customers to become part of your list, as well as to get them onto social media and to engage with you and your brand.

We end of the session exploring why and what are mobile apps and widgets, and how to use them for acquiring new customers, or how mobile apps can assist you to manage your digital marketing life.
