Virtual CPD Update – Ulster Society:
Making social media work for your business

Social media is a vital business tool. We already know that it allows businesses to boost awareness, grow their reputation and build a following of potential clients. It can be hard to get it right though, and there are certainly pitfalls.

In this session, we will bring together a panel of experts to simplify things, share some effective tactics and help you to think strategically about how to use social media to boost your business. The aim is to help you to get some genuine value out of social media.

Richard Grogan and Will Francis will talk about the practical side of building a following and providing content that works. Aisling Byrne will address some of the risks around social media, and how to ensure you, or your staff, do not experience the pitfalls.

Whether you’ve no idea where to start, or have dabbled without success, this session will show you how you should approach social media. After that – it is up to you…
