In many organizations, social media work is handed over to just one person—and is usually just one of many responsibilities that staffer has. But like the name suggests, strategic social media is best practiced with others, as you share ideas, lessons learned and each other’s content. In this training, we’ll give you the tools to manage day-to-day and long-term social media work as a team of one, while also introducing you to communities and resources that are already in place to support your digital efforts.
This training is for beginning to intermediate level digital or communications staffers, especially those at smaller organizations with limited budgets and resources.
