Why do I need to read this guide?

To engage the whole community, it is often not enough to just hold physical events. People have busy lives and can’t often make meetings and events. More and more groups are now starting to use social media to engage those who traditionally don’t go to events. This guide provides useful tips to do this successfully.

What will I learn from this guide?

  • How to make the most of Twitter, Facebook, blogging, and Youtube
  • What to avoid when using these social media platforms
  • Top tips to maximise their use
