UPCOMING DIGITAL CHAMPIONS EVENTS

29 October 2019 Social Media Update

 

8:30am – 12:30pm at Business SA

Digital marketing has evolved from having a brochure oriented website through to the use of video and audio media as well as developing material suitable for smart phone and for the numerous social media applications.

The major providers of social media continue to evolve their platforms and algorithms to increase their revenue streams. While this presents a great opportunity for many small businesses to communicate with current and potential customers, keeping up-to-date with the significant changes is almost impossible with the management of digital and media increasingly being outsourced to specialised digital agencies.

The seminar is a focused best practice summary where businesses will be presented with the latest trends in social media, specifically Facebook and Instagram.
