Social media can be a great tool not only for communicating with your existing members and contacts, but reaching out further to gain new followers and supporters, recruiting new members, promoting events and showing the public what your group is all about.
Whether you want help with getting started on social media, or have been using it for some time and are looking for more tips on how to get the most out of it, we are running a series of three events focusing individually on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to help you get to grips with the possibilities of each platform.
In this session, we’ll be focusing specifically on Facebook. During the event, we’ll divide into two groups:
- Beginner level – for those who are new to Facebook or who want to learn the basics
- Experienced level – for those already using Facebook, and who want to take their knowledge to the next level
In each group, there will be a chance to talk to other members at the same level as yourself and find out what successes and issues they have had on Facebook, and ask questions of them and Making Music staff about using Facebook.
Who should attend this event?
Anyone is welcome to attend this event, but it will be particularly useful to marketing, publicity and social media officers of leisure-time music groups.
As our events are in high demand, we are requesting that only person per group books to attend, to allow as many different groups as possible to benefit.
Cost: FREE for members and non-members
