Growing with Social Media

With Louise Welsby - Digital Marketing Consulant

Seminar Days: Tuesday & Wednesday

Social media is a great way to reach your gift buying audience but without huge budgets and all the expertise, it can be a challenge managing in house and growing your audience so that you can make a real difference. 

This seminar will be invaluable for anyone who is looking to build their brand online and will feature an interactive session where you will take away practical tools to use in your business straight away.

Louise will leave you feeling empowered to take your social media marketing to the next level.
