Mastering Social Media

The Local Enterprise Office (LEO) 
in association with Dungarvan Enterprise Centre 
are delighted to announce that 
on Tuesday 25th October,
  "Mastering Social Media" 
A la Carte training programme begins.

Lets face it, no matter what kind of business you are in, you can be sure that all your customers are using Social Media.  As you are aware it is hard to keep on top of Social Media whilst running your business.  So knowing how to master your Social Media will give you a great opportunity to get involved with your customers online, build relationships, encourage loyalty and generate referrals.

The Local Enterprise Office is now giving you the opportunity to enhance your Social Media skills and grow your business with this Mastering Social Media Programme

Day 1's focus is:
  • Building your customer profile 
  • Identifying where you can find your customers online and 
  • Building a social media skills programme tailored to YOUR needs. 
Finally, you will work with your coach to identify your individual training needs and tailor an 'A la Carte' programme that's specific to your requirements.

And who's delivering the programme?

The programme will be delivered by Nuala Browne and Grainne Barrett both from Meraki Marketing.  Nuala has over 20 years' experience in Retail Management & Marketing, whilst Grainne's expertise is in Digital Marketing and is an excellent creator of social media content.  Their assistance will enable you to meticulously look at your business and identify core attributes, your customer's persona and then build a solid digital and traditional strategy around it.

Meraki Marketing provides the planning of a strategy and the execution of a campaign that connects YOU with your customer in a meaningful way.  Their goal is to achieve maximum commercial success for clients.  
Nuala says "We develop successful conversations that influence every stage of your customer's journey and get the results you need."  That is what we all want to hear I think!

As mentioned earlier, the programme kicks off on Tuesday 25th October at 10am here in the Dungarvan Enterprise Centre.  This great investment costs €30 per module or €90 for the complete programme.  To book your place or for further information on this unique A la Carte programme, please contact the Local Enterprise Office Waterford at www.localenterprise.ie/waterford
