Next Social: Pinterest, Google+, Instagram - Brisbane

Three relatively new social media platforms, each with their own strong business applications. Pinterest and Instagram play to the appealing visual aspects of certain product categories, as well as in situ image capture opportunities such as community or sporting events. Google+ is already an important brand vehicle... and growing rapidly.

This half-day session is presented in a practical learning format: live online demonstrations in an interactive class setting limited to 22 people.

A Certificate of Training is provided.

Who it's for

Anyone wanting a detailed introduction to how these new platforms operate within the context of sales, marketing and customer social engagement.

Who it's not for

Not for people who are happy with the ways things are and don't see any need to explore new and emerging social media.
