  • Learn the principles of social media for business and develop a social media plan with expert support

  • Understand the value of content in a blog and create a blog post for your website

  • Learn how best to share content on social media and create some social media posts

  • Learn how to measure your activity

Expert teachers and tutors will be on hand to walk you through each stage and answer your questions.

The workshop will be suitable if you are just getting going in your online journey or are already well underway and need some help to get you to the next level.

While the Rocketspark website builder platform will be used as a teaching aid to bring your learning to life it’s not a requirement that you have a Rocketspark website.

  • Bring along your own device! Laptop, smart phone, however you plan to access your website/social media/etc.
