I’ve been asked to run an information session for local business people from the hospitality industry at Groarty House B&B, Londonderry. It is open to all.

This information session will introduce you to the concept of social media and how it can be used to promote (yourself and) your organisation. There will be a swift, jargon-free run-through of what is available (most of it free).

It will include a list of where to go for additional information and will end with a list of recommendations of what to do next.

What are the session objectives?

The objectives of the session are as follows:

  • To introduce you to the new tools and what they do
  • To introduce you to the new terminology
  • To suggest ways in which you might use the tools to promote your organisation
  • To warn you about pitfalls and expenses you might incur along the way

Who is the session for?

This session is for anyone who wants to gain a quick-fire overview of what social media is. It is most suitable for absolute beginners, and only a basic working knowledge of the world wide web is assumed.

Those who already use some forms of social media (perhaps on a personal basis) will gain an insight into how this could be translated to business purposes. And, they will find their knowledge and awareness is increased of the new tools available.

What topics will be covered?

  • Social Media
  • Jargon
  • Communication
  • Social Networking
  • Blogging
  • Podcasting, Videos, Photos
  • Bookmarking & Tagging
  • Mapping
