Twitter is often maligned as a negative space full of trolls. Yet the same space that exists for commentary on current world affairs is also a place where a business can converse with its target market.

Regardless of your industry, Twitter offers a place where conversation between a business and customer can take place – either as part of a wider discussion, or a one-to-one dialogue. But it’s not just limited to 280 characters. Twitter is a multimedia platform encompassing images, video and audio. Using more features will generate better results whether you want to use it for lead generation or customer service.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the many features you should be using but possibly aren’t, and how you can use the platform to push your business forward.

Who should attend this workshop?

Anyone using, or considering using, Twitter to increase their own visibility online, or increase the brand awareness of their company.
