I love Twitter. If you’ve been connected with me for a while, that won’t be news to you. I can honestly say that most of the projects and work I’m doing now have come about directly through connections I’ve made on Twitter.
Equally, I know that a lot of people are suspicious of it and unsure as to whether it’s worth any potential hassle. With that in mind, I’ve put together a hands-on, step-by-step guide to physically using Twitter – taking the mystery out of it and showing how it can help you build your online presence, and more importantly, your community.
The importance of social media and why we should use it is well documented but how it physically works is still fazes many people – particularly as the platforms regularly update their systems. Just when you’ve got the hang of it, they change it! Come along for a detailed tour around Twitter and take future developments in your stride.
From setting up an attractive profile to navigating the platform and saving you time, I’ll show you how to make the most of this effective platform with a step by step guide, including:
– Understanding the basics: notifications, replies, direct messages and mentions
– Adding images
– Scheduling tweets
– Checking analytics
– Using lists
– Who to follow and how to find them
– How, why and when to use hashtags
– Conversation and community etiquette
– Content curation and creation tips
– Monitoring unfollowers
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those with an existing profile who haven’t fully embraced it yet, and will be beneficial to small businesses, community groups, artists and individuals – anyone seeking to grow their online presence. We will engage in practical tasks and real time conversations to get you up and running.
