About the workshop
Regardless of industry, offering, size or structure, social media is a key plank in your company’s digital marketing success. These channels represent a powerful and dynamic marketing tool, delivering your message to potentially millions of customers. Social media enables direct brand interaction and real-time market feedback. Facebook boasts over 1.86 billion active users monthly, while Instagram has more than 700 million and a claim of over 8 million business profiles, representing a critical component of your marketing strategy.
