Social Media Training for Business
In the age of social media, communication has become the currency of not just the traditional news empires, but anyone with a Blackberry, an iPhone, a Twitter account, a blog or a Facebook page. The concept of ‘news’ has changed from something spoon-fed from the higher echelons of Fleet Street media moguls, to whatever the ordinary individual considers important to them. Social Networks such as Facebook have gained an enormous global appeal, which continues to grow through the integration of features such as the Facebook ‘Like’ button on websites right across the Internet.
Harness the power of social media communication
A Hollywood movie recently documented the life of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, who is now the face of a multi-billion dollar industry, despite still being some way off his thirtieth birthday. If ever there was proof needed that social media is an incredibly important part of communication and business in the 21st century then surely that is it. Businesses that are not engaged in effective social media communication are failing not only themselves, but also their consumers, at a time when everyone is hungry for information. Without proper social media training, it’s easy to get left in the corner when your marketplace goes social with Facebook fan pages, YouTube video production and Twitter feeds.
According to figures in the United States, social media accounts for more than 20 per cent of the total amount of time spent online. These astonishing figures demonstrate that harnessing the power of social media communication is vital to staying ahead of the curve in the online marketing race.
