Social Sessions Power Duo Candice and Zoe
January 2014 will be something of the past in a few short days and if you are still busy planning and bending your mind what the next step should be towards taking your online business, blog, small start-up or entrepreneurial idea to the next phase and into the social stratosphere, it might be worth your while to consider attending the next Social Sessions which is heading to The Parks next month.
As an entrepreneur and blogger myself and passionate activist for self owned and managed businesses, I love what Zoe and Candice have created in Social Sessions and can not underscore the value and importance enough of skill sharing and acquiring new skills in new start-up ventures. A good way to start would be to enrol yourself in Social Sessions upcoming workshop and get a head start for the rest of year and immerse yourself in the very powerful world of Social Media.
The next workshop is on the 27th and 28th of February 2014 in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. You can book your ticket and find out more through their website: www.socialsessions.co.za or mail them to chat further at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets sales close 12 February 2014.
So what is the Social Sessions workshop all about:
In their own words Candice explains it as the following:
Social media has proven to be a very successful (and fun) marketing channel for small businesses and entrepreneurs, but getting your business and hard work out there via social media might be a daunting task if you’re new to it all. It can be so rewarding for your business, if you know how to go about it properly.
Social Sessions is a two-day workshop currently running in Johannesburg, but will soon expand into Cape Town too. It is run by myself, Candice Kropf of Social Ideas and Zoe Saayman of Zoe Inc – a social media brain and a digital design brain – we have teamed up to bring you experiential workshops that fuse these two branding and marketing disciplines in a simple and understandable way, so that you can use these elements in building your personal/business brand online.
The workshop teaches the basics of social media marketing, shows you how to create a social media strategy, the basics of digital design using Photoshop and how to design and create layouts, customised social media artwork and web banners. Knowing what to do in the social media world is one (big) thing, but being able to visually represent your brand in that space is an immediate boost for your business.’
Zoe and Candice believe that as entrepreneurs and small business owners:
A. you simply cannot afford to pay agency prices for your communication and marketing, and
B. that many people have ‘fallen off the technology wagon’ and just don’t know where to start.
They take the fear out of the unknown in a comfortable and friendly environment, with hands-on teaching and invaluable advice from personal experience.
