Combining LinkedIn training with a better business blogging workshop in Windsor, Berkshire

on 2 February, 2012 No comments as yet -

Learn how to maximise your LinkedIn profile in the morning and then after lunch, tune into the importance of blogging and sharing your wisdom far and wide…

Our London half day workshops are going down a treat so we wondered if we combined a morning session on LinkedIn with an afternoon session on better business blogging, how that would work out in the popularity stakes in Windsor.

Do Berkshire’s business people want to get their heads around blogging? As luck would have it, Mark White, who runs our LinkedIn workshops to rave reviews, spent 2005-10 creating the betterbusinessblogging.com website which attracts thousands of visitors every month.

So as with the LinkedIn top tips, you can sign up to the blogging top tips for FREE or you can come along and spend a day learning how to make the most of the two most important social media tools in your virtual tool box.

Keeping the model simple, you can attend either session individually for £145 + VAT, which includes lunch or you can attend the full day for just £245 + VAT.

Please pay via PayPal below or we can invoice, simply email billing details to jon@socialmediadirectors.co.uk and we’ll forward an invoice, payable before the course date. Thank you.
