Social Elements’ regular face-to-face and online social media training workshops are great opportunities to boost your knowledge, practise skills and share tips and tricks with other professionals along the way.

You can choose between bespoke training for your organisation, or a place on our open courses (details below!).

Social media marketing is a powerful tool

LinkedIn training: Build your personal brand

*BETA COURSE AVAILABLE AT HEAVILY DISCOUNTED PRICE*

A four-week beginner online course for anyone who wants to improve their LinkedIn profile, build a network and get results!

LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool if you’re looking for business or career connections, but it can be daunting if you don’t know it well. That’s where this course comes in.

Whether you run your own business, are looking for your next career move, or are currently seeking work, this course will give you the tools to get the results you need.

We’ll build your knowledge of LinkedIn as a platform, introduce you to best practice, hints and tips to get the most from it.

Starting with the basics, you’ll learn about all the different aspects of the platform and how to navigate it. Once you’ve got an idea of how it works, we’ll move on to see how LinkedIn can help you in your personal goals.

From creating a great profile that works hard for you to developing content and posting strategies, networking, engaging with others and ultimately generating leads, we’ll cover it all. Topics will include:

  • Navigating LinkedIn and seeing what it can do for you
  • Understanding your ideal clients or other contacts
  • Creating a strong personal profile that uses all the elements available to you
  • Networking and building relevant, engaged connections
  • Developing and implementing an effective content strategy
  • Measuring your success
  • Generating leads to help you build your business or progress your career

Delivered through weekly video and downloadable content, you’ll also have access to a weekly group video call with Lisa to talk through any questions, as well as a LinkedIn group where everyone taking the course can share learning throughout the duration of the course. You’ll have access to the course content for a full year, and you can download and keep the exercises to look back on and remind yourself of everything you’ve learnt.

This four-week beta course (the first run of this training) is available for a heavily discounted price of £199. It’s a big discount and spaces are limited, so sign up for this great deal while it’s still available!

NB: After this beta group, we next plan to run the course in January 2021 at full price.

Photogram online training

Developed in partnership with New Shoots photographers Liz Devonshire and Nathalie Crouch.

Join us online for an exciting introduction to Instagram and smartphone photography. You can follow this course at your own pace, whenever it suits you.

By the end of the session you’ll understand:

  • How to shoot a flat-lay photograph from above
  • How to style your shoot, including lighting, composition and editing
  • The basics of Instagram, including how to navigate the platform
  • How to create a beautiful Instagram grid post and an Instagram story

 

The course costs £79 and once you’ve paid for and downloaded the materials, you can work through them at your own pace.

NB: After this beta group, we next plan to run the course in January 2021 at full price.
