Maximising Twitter

21 Sep

Media Trust, 4th Floor, Block A, W12 7SB

Thursday 21 September 2017 10:00 - 13:00

Having a Twitter presence is becoming essential for charities in today's ever increasing digital landscape. It can be one of the best tools in your toolbox to increase volunteering, share content, campaign and fundraise. But how do you use it effectively? What sort of tone is right for your organisation? How do you keep your audience engaged?

It can sometimes feel like a bit of a minefield. This focused workshop will give you the practical skills to build a following, identify and engage your audiences and measure your organisation’s performance. Improve your reach, content and messaging on one of the fastest growing social networks on the planet.

It was very informative and helpful and has gave me things to consider to help increase our engagement.
