We are working with town-based social media specialists Gumption Agency to run three free Zoom-based workshops to help local businesses/organisations promote what they do during lockdown.
As part of our Discuss and Do programme, we had planned to run a half-day workshop in May but will now be delivering it over three consecutive weeks in one-hour Zoom meetings run by Gumption Agency on Wednesday 22 April, Wednesday 29 April and Wednesday 6 May from 10am to 11am.
The sessions will cover the basics of using the three main social media channels of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote your business or organisation. They will cover what to post, when and how, tips on growing your followers as well as touching on using the advertising/boosting features to further engage with people who might be interested in what you do.
“It’s a very difficult time for small businesses at the moment. Many are only able to operate online so being confident in ways to use social media to reach customers is becoming even more important,” said Chamber President Pauline Davey.
“The Chamber therefore wanted to offer some practical help to businesses and organisations in the town to help them use social media more confidently to keep the profile of their business high during the lockdown.
“We have therefore made these sessions free and we think they will be useful for both beginners and people wanting to learn a few new tips to improve and consolidate what they already do.”
To sign up to the three sessions email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent login details to the meetings.
We are also reshaping the rest of our Discuss and Do programme, which aims help businesses share ideas and learn new skills, and more details will be available on the Frome Chamber website and Facebook page when these are finalised.
