Course details

Social media in 2017 is evolving at a fast pace. From its early days as simply a portal to connect with friends and family, it is now a marketing juggernaut and offers powerful opportunities for brand promotion and awareness.

Analytics are now more comprehensive and easier to use, and new platforms are gaining traction aimed at niche markets or specific user groups.

Real-time video content streaming is now enabling much more engagement than any other content format, and news sources regularly cite social networks when covering major events.

To keep up with these changes in the social media landscape, Social Jungle is offering a training course to Guild members.

The course is for those who:

  • Don’t want to be left behind
  • Want to know how to use social media successfully
  • Prefer learning through practical solutions and real life examples
  • Want to understand how to market and communicate socially, both personally and professionally
  • Want to position themselves as experts
  • Are interested in how value can be gained commercially and in turn help to increase revenue 

Training includes:

  • Gaining an understanding of the current and evolving social media environment
  • Identifying the platforms that are right for you
  • Setting achievable goals and objectives
  • Learning about new opportunities for journalists and publishers
