Description
Social Media here, Social Media there... Social Networks are all over the Internet. Businesses that have a clear understanding of these platforms’ potential are widely using them as marketing and promotion tools, some with more success than others. What about you, as a CEO? Have you already been using Social Media as a marketing tool but the results were not what you expected? Or are you considering using it but still not sure of the what, where, why, how?
Regardless of your history with Social Media, this webinar aims to give you the basic keys to understanding Social Media Marketing for freelance translators - its various sides, its pros and cons, the differences between main networks and their basic (n)etiquettes... - so that you can have some key elements at hand to make a business decision: to invest in Social Media Marketing. Or not.
