Social & Digital

  • Australian Institute of Architects 70 Merivale Street South Brisbane, QLD, 4101 Australia (map)

Let’s face it, we should have a pretty good understanding of social media, digital, PR and how it works, right? But most of us are still struggling and missing out the incredible benefits of this key marketing activity.

In the 21st century, social & digital should be present in any marketing strategy. In the past companies think about this as having a website, posting on Facebook and Twitter, but there is more than that! We will talk about common goals for social & digital, producing quality content, creating quality conversations, what is the process and how to start and be great at this important marketing activity.

3pm free consultation / 4pm networking and refreshments / 4:30pm start
