Social Media: A Hands-on Coaching Class
Sunday, November 6, 2011 09:00AM - 11:30AM
Location: Potomac Room I/II
Institute for Community Inclusion. Boston, MA
This workshop will build on the 2010 Social Media: Real Involvement, Real Results workshop. We will organize a Hands On Coaching Class designed to help AUCD network members take theoretical knowledge of Social Media to the next step and begin using it in everyday business.
There are so many ways to connect, including blogging, social networking, and content sharing. Doing it is easier than you think! Participants will master practical, real-world applications and construct their own dashboard for managing multiple social media streams and monitoring multiple conversations. Using these tools you will develop your own unique social media strategy.
Attendees do NOT need to have attended the 2010 Workshop.
Attendees should bring a laptop computer with wireless network and email access.
