Is Social Media really delivering for your organisation or business?

Do you have a Facebook Page but struggle to grow your Likes or engage fans? Maybe you are on LinkedIn with a profile and connections but what do you do with them? Twitter sounds great but how do you use it effectively for business and grow followers? What are the best tactics for Instagram? Are you still struggling with social media? Need help?

We have teamed up again with Bill McCartney, Northern Ireland’s leading social media trainer. His workshops are legendary and his first Facebook Page ranked #1 in the world on Likealyzer.com.

Bill McCartney loves this Wayne Gretzky quote “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been”

Northern Ireland businesses tend to be focused on 2017 social media trends. They fail to look far enough ahead. This training will help you focus on the future direction of Social Media in Northern Ireland to ensure your business success.
