ETAG Digital Workshop: Social Media in Tourism

  • This event has passed.

Come along to this beginners guide to Social Media platforms for Tourism. During this session the delegates will be introduced to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google Plus and given practical examples of tourism businesses successfully using these platforms.

Content will cover the basic functionality of each platform, the audience demographic for different platforms, advertising and analytics features that are beneficial to tourism businesses.

Delegates are welcomed to log-in and use the platforms guided by the workshop facilitator. Cover images can be uploaded or changed, Twitter and Google Plus accounts can be opened, images uploaded to Instagram and the benefits of using hashtags explained.

This is a flexible workshop that will aim to enable delegates to use the platform(s) of their choice. You will leave with an understanding of the role and advantages of social media in Tourism.

Note: Attendees are welcome to bring laptops and/or tablets and use the online tools when discussed during the workshops – this activity will be guided.
