At the end of September we had another of our Social Media Seminars aimed just for Charities, this one in Plymouth entitled ‘Facebook from flop to fantastic’. We had around 30 charities from across the South West who learnt how to make better use of Facebook for their charity. Using case-studies, campaigns and a warts ‘n’ all expose of this popular SocMed tool, we were able to guide them through the steps of using Facebook to engage and promote their charity.
As with all our training seminars, interaction and participation are always encouraged and we welcomed charities large and small who wanted to learn how to make better use of these new media technologies in a fun and challenging way.
We also very pleased to have Santander talking about the Santander Foundation which funds local, regional and national charities for their work within the UK. They are committed to helping disadvantaged people through their two charitable priorities. Formerly the Abbey Charitable Trust, the Foundation was set up in 1990 and has given more than £36 million to charities in the UK. In 2012 the Foundation will be increasing its grants budget to £4.5 million.
With some great feedback and really positive results already for the charities, a very pleasing result all round!
So if you business or charity needs help making the most out of your Facebook and social media presence then why not get in touch, we’d be happy to have a no obligation chat, what have you got to lose?- get in touch here.
