Social media training courses

Even though social media has become an integral part of most organisations’ communications plans, it can be hard to keep up with the pace of change.

Many organisations also struggle to use social media effectively and fail to see a return on investment.

No matter what stage of the social media journey you and your organisation are at, we can devise a course based on your requirements, expertise and goals.

Our practical, hands-on courses will help you produce more shareable and engaging content and to achieve better brand awareness.

We can help you explore and develop social media and online marketing strategies, and work with you to select appropriate software and applications to help you manage your time, stay connected and achieve your business goals.

And at a time when brand reputations can be almost instantly shattered online, we can also help you respond effectively to a social media crisis. This includes showing how your social media teams can become integrated with media and comms teams and be viewed as an asset during a reputational crisis.

Our social media courses are bespoke. Depending on your experience, your training could be delivered by a social media expert, an internet psychologist or a journalist. Our tutors have a unique understanding of what makes audiences tick and how to create compelling internet content.

Whether you need a one-off-training session, on-going support, a large group course or some one-to-one training, our dedicated account managers will work with you to understand your exact requirements and create a unique course.

We have delivered social media training to some of the country’s biggest brands and our courses can be delivered anywhere in the UK and beyond.

Regional press officers from England, Scotland and Wales all attended social media training with Media First, and, without exception, found it helpful and thought-provoking. Particularly noteworthy was the way the trainer successfully addressed the needs of people from a variety of backgrounds, some of whom were relatively new to many aspects of social media, while others were more knowledgeable. It was a stimulating and interesting day for all who attended.

— Jason Mann, Head of BT Regional Press Office
