Dear All,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend our professional-centric training course on Social media advocacy course that runs all year round.

Social media advocacy means leveraging the social networks of the people who like you and/or are invested in your continued success: your customers and employees. For many companies, these two groups are their biggest untapped resources as well as their biggest fans.

By turning as many of these people as possible into brand advocates—people who proactively talk up and advocate for your company to their own networks—you can extend your reach & generate greater brand affinity.

Why You Should Attend This Course:

Organisations and brands marketing on social media would have developed a sizeable community at some point. As advertising messages become less effective to these communities as consumers become wary, brands and organisations need to leverage on their consumers’ ‘love’ on social media to support key brand messages with more credibility. Unlike sponsored influencers or celebrities, these everyday consumers have much more significant social credibility. They can influence other consumers’ perceptions and possibly even defend the brands in times of social media crisis. So is there a systematic way to develop social media advocacy?

This course offers a strategic framework on developing a social media advocacy program. The key principles presented in the framework can be customised to the needs of any brand or organisation for deployment. Through a combination of presentation and case studies, it will arm attendees with the right mindset and understanding to plan, deploy and sustain an effective social media advocacy program.

Note: Participants are required to bring laptop/tablet for hands on exercises.
