Content: This workshop will introduce participants to a range of social media tools and explore how they can be used to enhance their customers' experience. No previous experience of using these tools is required. Prior to the session you will be sent a pre-course questionnaire and instructions on setting up a Twitter account.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have

  • discussed how customers (users, clients) want to be treated
  • examined a number of social media tools
  • explored ways in which these social media tools can be used to engage with users and meet customer needs
  • considered the strengths and challenges of social media in this context.

Feedback from participants at previous Improving customers' experience using social media training days includes:

“The range of different social media applications covered was great and went beyond just Facebook and Twitter. Was interesting to see how they could be used by different institutions."

"The training session was excellent. I not only enjoyed it but came out with more knowledge and ideas than I was probably expecting. By far one of the most useful training sessions I have had on social media and new technologies."
