Through presentations and interactive seminar sessions, Tiya Ivy, Digital Marketing Manager, and Nik Webb, Operations Director, from Molokini Marketing, will explore key social media channels, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram, and help businesses to understand the benefits of using social media to market their transport, warehousing and logistics related training courses.
“The masterclass will suit absolute beginners, while also giving insights, ideas, best practice and useful tools for businesses that have been using social media for some time,” explains Tiya Ivy. “It will be a chance to develop existing social media strategies to help them to get the best out of it. Not just using it as a sales tool, but to become part of the wider community.”
