Top Tips for Pro Pics – Products, Services & PR


1st July 2020 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Visual Content for Social Media & Online Marketing – A 3 part series helping you create professional and engaging visual content.

Now more than ever businesses need to make the most of marketing their services online.

As a result of the impacts of COVID 19 and changes to how we can reach our customer, we are seeing more activity on social media.

To stay seen, you need to make sure you are visible, your content is professional and that you stand out from the rest.

We know it’s tough to create stand out content, and even more so when you are bootstrapping and on a budget!

To help you make the right impression as we start on the possibly long road to recovery, we have created a series of events delivered by experts in their field to give you the skills you need to be seen and heard by your target customers, and to make your social media and digital marketing as good as it can be.

The three sessions will look at photography and video using your own smartphone, followed by a session on how to apply your content to your social media channels to get the best impact.

Book all three sessions to get the most out of this invaluable and informative series.
