Course Description

Social media is no longer novel. Brands and companies, both big and small, have harnessed it to grow their brands’ online presence, generate leads, and boost their sales.

While some have succeeded, the majority find that their online efforts do not bring the result that they desire. Often, this is due to a need for more in-depth knowledge of how social media or a particular platform works.

Targeted at current corporate and individual users of social media, this advanced-level course will provide a step-by-step guide to managing your social media marketing function in a systematic and sustainable fashion.

Using the easily remembered acronym ACE-ING!, it covers the following 5-steps:

  • Analyse: Assessing your current social media situation
  • Curate: Developing content ideas and putting them into a calendar
  • Execute: Advanced social media content strategies and techniques
  • Infer & Navigate: Understanding and responding to data
  • Governance: Managing your social media function for the long-term

Guided by best practices in both B2C and B2B businesses, it introduces a process for you to build your social media influence in a more scientific manner.

During the course, you will learn and apply the more advanced strategies and tactics gleaned from the worlds of behavioural economics, storytelling, data analytics, and brand building. You will also be equipped with the tools and techniques needed to manage your company’s social media function as well as to develop your own SOPs for social media.

Target Audience
