Social Media Training

With the variety of choices out there, if can be hard for organizations and their leadership to understand when and how they should take advantage of the social media platforms that exist. Each one, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Tik Tok, serves a different purpose, but each allows for connection with your consumers. This means companies, non-profits, C-suite execs and so on can engage with their audiences daily, but also use these tools to communicate quickly and effectively during times of crisis.

There are several important steps within an overall strategy that need to be taken in order to build an audience. This session will lay those steps out clearly and help determine which tactics are best suited for you. Xenophon can also help you establish a personality for your social media accounts as part of this strategy session.
