Skills development: Basic basic social media for tourism & creative businesses

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest – the list is almost endless. If you are a creative or working in the Cornish tourism industry and a little daunted by the prospect of using social media to grow your business, then this is the course for you. It is a very basic introduction to the various platforms available, looking at who your target audiences are and the best ways to reach them online. The day will also include a hands-on workshop with a social media professional, helping you to set up an account, publish your first posts and put together a strategic content plan for the months to come.
