Social Media Fundamentals
When: 10:00 - 13:00, Monday 19 March 2018 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £40.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
This half-day workshop will help you ensure your social media activity is closely aligned to organisational goals. You'll come away from this session with an understanding of how social media can help your organisation achieve its aims, how you can protect your charity, staff and volunteers with a simple policy, which channels are key to your online presence and content planning techniques.
You'll also get a chance to get hands-on with Twitter - exploring the fundamentals, Lists, Hashtags and more - plus you'll learn what makes a Facebook Page or Group really work for a third sector organisation.
There's time allocated for open discussion, allowing us to explore specific topics set by the group. This could be a particular channel like LinkedIn, Snapchat or Instagram or it could be an issue you're facing in your organisation.
This training will help you to:
- Understand the benefits of using social media
- Develop a social media strategy
- Develop a social media policy
- Get hands-on with Twitter & Facebook
- Understand the role of your website, blogging and video & audio content.
- Explore a range of channels like Snapchat, Instagram, LinkedIn, e-Newsletters and more.
There will be hands-on elements to the session, which will take place in FVA's IT Suite. There are only 12 computers so places are limited.
This session will be delivered by Ross McCulloch of Be Good Be Social. Ross is the founder of Be Good Be Social training and events, as well as Director of Third Sector Lab. He has worked with a wide range of charity and public sector clients on social media strategy, including Relationships Scotland, SCVO, Oxfam Scotland, Enable Scotland, and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Ross also sits on Foundation Scotland's Impact and Innovation Committee and is Chair of Comic Relief's Community Cash Glasgow funding panel.
