Course description

Build your profile – one tweet at a time!

So, you’ve heard about Twitter and wonder what all the fuss is about. Maybe you even have a small group of followers. But how can you use Twitter to boost your profile and create opportunities for yourself, regardless of whether you are a writer, business owner or someone who wants to build their personal brand?

Twitter is a powerful social media tool that can help you connect with the right people in your industry, build you a loyal fan base and help you boost your profile.

Just ask your presenter Kerri Sackville, who started on Twitter with zero followers. In less than a year, she scored a legion of raving fans, an agent, a book deal and is now a bestselling author. All through Twitter.

In this seminar, Kerri dissects how she used Twitter to build her profile and, importantly, shows how you can do the same.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Twitter basics – what you need to know so you don’t embarrass yourself.
  • The lingo – what is a “retweet” or a “DM”? What is a “hashtag” and when do you use it?
  • Your strategy – we break down the exact steps you need to take so you don’t just tweet about what you had for lunch.
  • Who should you follow? We’ll show you how to be strategic about who you’re following.
  • Increase your followers – how to do this authentically.
  • Twitter tools – we’ll show you the free apps to make tweeting easy and fun (Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, Twitterific, etc.).

This seminar is ideal if you’re new to Twitter. It’s a platform that’s a lot more than just a series of random ramblings. If you use it strategically, it can connect you with influencers and create opportunities, whether you are a writer, business owner or expert. You’ll leave with a clear blueprint on how to use Twitter to boost your profile – one tweet at a time.

    Hannah Oates

    “It was great to attend a social media course that focused solely on Twitter, it made it much easier to absorb. Kerri was very personable and interesting. I have already recommended this seminar to someone else who is looking to build a profile through Twitter.”
