'Social Media Management'-
By understanding social media as a platform for digital information exchange, we can focus our attentions on how this medium can be adapted to work inside our Coaching business model. Social media is extremely useful for accessing or even building online communities (in business terms this is called a target audience). By imposing their presence on social media, businesses can actively access their current base of consumers as well as target a whole range of prospective new ones. While this can be achieved in a variety of ways, we will look at just two of the most effective channels of interaction; direct and indirect interaction. We will look at LinkedIN, Facebook and Instagram primarily and will teach you skills to ensure you get the most from your platforms in both an organic and paid for environment.
Throughout this session we will explore paid advertising across a range of digital platforms as well as its associated theories, terms and their practical applications. This unit will deal with search engine advertising, display advertising, video advertising and the practice of remarketing. We will also learn how to measure the success of an online ad and its various elements (this includes reporting, conversion tracking and attribution modelling).
