    At this Social Media “Half Day” Workshop you will:

    • develop your social media strategy
    • develop your social media guidelines
    • have a plan to respond to negative comments
    • learn about Facebook Live videos
    • LinkedIn publishing
    • Instagram posts
    • PR & Influencer outreach
    • get 1-on-1 feedback from Adam Franklin

    Here's a reader response that sparked the idea for this workshop:

    "I've reached the conclusion that I need deadlines, and want flesh & bone trainers. As great as your online course is, I want it in a classroom with flesh & bone people sitting next to me."

    So this will be a "doing" day but not a "technical" workshop. What I mean by this is it's for non-techies, like me and you. We'll get the high level and important content created, and then I'll help you delegate the techincal tasks to your team. And if you dont have a team I recommend using Automation Agency who can do all these niggly techie tasks for you!

    I propose teaching you what you need to do in-person AND we'll actually DO IT in the workshop. I'll teach you but most importantly I'll be there to give feedback and help you get it DONE on the day.
