Social Media Workshop Overview

As part of what we do here at Wrexham Glyndŵr ZONE, 4 fantastic social media based workshops were funded and arranged for students and graduates to take part in. The classes ran from the end of April to mid-June.

All classes were held by the fabulous Teresa Carnall from TBC Marketing (a professional social media, communication, PR and training company).

Social media has become vital for businesses these days, and Teresa shared her tips and tricks to help people make the most of these popular sites. These sessions were helpful to all, but also at times specific to certain attendees. Teresa has a fantastic hands-on approach, we weren’t simply sitting listening for the duration of the workshop, we got to get our hands on a keyboard and take a real look at the nitty-gritty of each site. There were also points where people’s individual profiles were looked at and advice was given on how to improve upon them – honesty is the best policy! The information held within each session was very important and helpful, yet there was a real friendly, informal feel to it all. Any questions were asked and conversations were held as a group discussion.

If anyone would like to see more of these workshops being held here at Wrexham Glyndŵr University then don’t hesitate to contact us!

Or alternatively – head towards the TBC Marketing website if you feel like your workplace could benefit from Teresa’s knowledge.

FREE E-mail Marketing Workshop

 

Using Email Marketing to Help Transform your Business

FREE workshop

15th June 2016, 1pm -5pm

While social media is grabbing all the attention from businesses all over the country, it’s getting ever more difficult to get your business voice heard this way. Email marketing on the other hand is growing. Statistics show that 61% of consumers say that email is their preferred way of getting commercial messages and 1 in 5 will open a marketing email ‘just in case something is on offer’. Email is also ranked as the single best way to engage with your audience. However, all this means nothing if your emails aren’t giving your customers the right ‘call to actions’ or worse, still writing a subject line that says delete, not – open me!

This workshop will take you through the do’s and don’ts of email marketing. It will give you a template on how to write effective emails as well as an overview of MailChimp – a free online email marketing platform.

It will be held on 15/06/16 in Wrexham Glyndwr University’s Edward Llywd Centre, Plas Coch campus (Room L203). For more information contact Judith at Wrexham Glyndŵr ZONE:
