Building A Meaningful Social Community
For businesses, events, artists and more
Celeste Bianca Winders, Word Mice
Having a Facebook page or a Twitter account is not powerful enough just based on its existence. Social media accounts should have a voice, they should build and connect community, and that community should be led by you.
The community you build should also care about your business, your organization, your book or your art. Learn how to give your audience a reason to be there and more importantly a reason to stay and ENGAGE!
1. Learn how to build your audience over time, and then how to inspire that audience to engage by building a community that is fun and meaningful.
2. Understand why it is critical that your social media content is fun, inspiring and conveys the messaging of your work and the intention behind your work.
3. Learn the tools that help you manage your time on social media efficiently and not fall into the wormhole of the social universe.
