  • Blogging: major platforms, content, style, promotion, traditional WordPress/Blogger blogs versus Tumblr

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Use social media more strategically, in conjunction with your other marketing
  • Understand and learn from statistics and analytics
  • Make use of relevant social media tools and techniques to help your organisation increase engagement online
  • Discern the different roles and areas of overlap between the various social media platforms
