Wondering how you can improve your social media offering? Want to attract more attention and increase engagement? Then this course is for you.

Led by former BBC journalist Sue Llewellyn, this three-hour course is designed to help you understand what works (and what doesn’t) in social media.

It will show you what makes people click and share, help you to think creatively about generating content your audiences will really want to engage with, and teach you how to get your content strategy buzzing. 

Course description

This one-day course is designed to get you thinking creatively about generating content your audiences will really want to engage with.

Aimed at journalists, writers, programme-makers, PRs and comms teams, the course is perfect for anyone who wants to be able to generate story ideas, find new media angles, and create engaging social media content.

Delegates will need a laptop/tablet/notebook and will be asked to do a (very short) bit of homework to bring on the day.

The course will cover:
  • What motivates social sharing and what makes great, clickable content
  • How to improve the shareability and discoverability of your existing content
  • How to generate great new ideas and come away brimming with inspiration

This course is also available as a part of a news:rewired+ package, which includes a ticket to our next news:rewired digital journalism conference on 3 February 2015 in London.
