Enabling Innovation are dedicating a day to Social Media and E-Commerce management for small business owners. This event will be split into two parts.

The morning will comprise of a Social Media workshop. There will be a networking lunch at midday and we will then commence with the second session on E-Commerce at 13:00. Tea and coffee available throughout the day. You are welcome to attend one or both sessions.

Session 1: Social Media

Social Media is constantly evolving and changing and has quickly become the most effective way for businesses of all sizes to communicate with customers. There are many compelling reasons to use social media but this can be daunting, particularly for small businesses who often have less time and resources available. The enormous potential however makes this an exciting opportunity. This workshop will give you practical advice to aid in generating sales and solid relationships through the use of social media and support you in forming a strategy for your campaigns.

During this session we will:

  • Look at the variety of social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others
  • Discuss which platforms to use depending on the type of business and product/service you have and how to make the most of your time on social media
  • Investigate how to reach your audience and drive sales. We will discuss engaging content, communicating, tools to enhance campaigns and how to create a strategy

We will have a midday break with a networking lunch and continue with a session about E-Commerce.

Session 2: E-Commerce

You will learn about practical steps to grow your business through E-Commerce. We will discuss:

  • Selecting your markets
  • Content, pricing and cataloguing
  • Customer relationship management
  • After sales management
  • Brand communication
