Event includes networking plus content about the essentials to help you plan and schedule your social media activity, from strategic planning and researching content and resources through to the correct tools and apps to facilitate the scheduling process.

A new modular way to network and learn. Choose whether you come for our standard networking and presentation event, the practical workshop afterwards, or both events to network, hear the theory and get hands-on practical support from expert Alex Platt of Swift VA. There’s over 3 hours on offer to work on your business development.


Social Media is one of those tasks that every business owner has a feeling they should be doing (it’s free marketing after all…) but it seems like such a massive job that we never get around to doing it properly.  Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram – how do some businesses manage to be on everything all the time??!

The secret is in the scheduling.

In this session, I will go through an overview of setting up a social media schedule to plan out your posts/tweets including what type of posts and when to post them, how to set up an actual schedule and then where to schedule them once you’ve completed it.

At the end of the talk, you will have all the basics of how to set up a social media schedule to use effectively and cut the time it takes to manage your social media each week.

In the practical session afterwards, I will go into more detail about all of the above and work through with you step by step exactly how to schedule and use the tools, plus answer any questions you may have.
