This June marks the end of the Superfast West Yorkshire business programme, and the last chance for small businesses to take advantage of free social media workshops.

This June marks the end of the Superfast West Yorkshire business programme, and the last chance for small businesses to take advantage of free social media workshops.

Marketing professionals and SME business owners have the opportunity to pick up a wealth of Linkedin and Social Media skills and learn how to create compelling content  at the final two events being held in Leeds.

A LinkedIn and Online Networking Workshop on Wednesday, June 17th  is being held at the Marriott Hotel Leeds and will cover all aspects of LinkedIn including; how to make your LinkedIn Profile work harder for your business and how to build effective business networks online. The second event will cover content creation, due to demand from businesses for this subject over the project period. The  Create Content Faster Workshop is been held on Wednesday 25 June at Hilton Leeds City.  The workshop will cover all aspects of how to write compelling content for social media to effectively engage business audiences.

The events are free and open to anyone wanting to discover how they might be able to take their online networking skills to the next level.  To secure  a place at the event, businesses should contact the team on  0845 144 0040 register online at http://bit.ly/JuneSFWYEvents

Wayne McKenna from Halifax Fan who recently attended the April LinkedIn masterclass class said:

 “The Superfast West Yorkshire trainers really know their stuff, the trainer was very professional and has a great teaching style. The event was very informative and will help my business take my networking efforts online”

 

Superfast West Yorkshire Business Project Manager Beth Hewitt said:

 “It has been refreshing to see so many businesses over the course of the Superfast West Yorkshire programme really embrace the need to use Social Media  as part of their everyday marketing plan.   One of the aims of the programme has been to introduce concepts and tools to local businesses in a supportive and relaxing environment where companies  can go away enthused about the world of social media for their business.  It’s sad to see such a hugely successful programme coming to a close, so I’m urging all businesses to take advantage of these final two events whilst they can.”

The business support programme has been running in the region since February 2014 and is due to come to a close at the end of this month.  The business support programme has helped over 800 businesses enhance their social  and digital marketing skills.

To attend these events, businesses will need to be SMEs with less than 250 employees and trading predominantly business-to-business.  To secure  a place at the event, businesses should contact the team on  0845 144 0040 register online at http://bit.ly/JuneSFWYEvents or email them at enquiries@superfastwy.co.uk. Eligibility criteria apply, as it is an ERDF-funded event.
