Summary:Using social networks as a marketing tool and somewhat disappointed by the results? Or considering integrating social media as part of your branding strategy? After the overview offered in the lats webinar, let's cutomize it to you and dig in detail this time in the Dos' and Don'ts and etiquettes of the biggest social networks.
After having covered some basics in the last webinars, this 3 hours highly interactive course will be a hands-on workshop, which means we'll go into much more details and customize the course to each attendee as much as possible.

After those 3 hours you should be able to immediately make you own Social Media Marketing plan and implement it.

Social networks are all over the place today and businesses that understood their potential are widely using them as marketing and promotion tools. Translation companies are no expection. A growing number of them are present on social media. The right question to ask yourself as freelance translators and thus entrepreneurs is not whether you should be onboard the social media train anymore. You should have figured that out for a while now, whether you're in or not, it was a choice. Or maybe you are still wondering whether you should - if that's your case, no worries, you can still catch the train!
No, the real question you should ask yourself if at this point you have decided to join the playground is how you should use these tools and what you expect from them. Or rather how you SHOULD NOT be using them and what you should not expect from them.

So, join us!
