Social Media for Business: What you need to know

What should directors expect from Social Media?

What was once the domain of only the most tech savvy is now possibly the best used 'bandwagon' of the digital era. But should your business be 'jumping aboard'? And how can you be sure you are getting a return on your investment?

The Institute of Directors (IoD) has partnered with Nottingham Business School to help answer these questions with a fast-paced and interactive presentation by Laura Hampton of Hallam Internet. Laura will explain the potential benefits of social media for business, with clear examples and case studies (both good and bad!), alongside details on how you can ensure you are getting the most out of your marketing efforts.

Attendees can expect:

  • A clear, concise explanation of social media for business,
  • how to manage a social media strategy
  • how to track social media goals.

You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the brand new IoD / Nottingham Business School short course, together with how to access match funding during the morning.
