Use Winter to Build Your Business With a Social Media & Digital Design Workshop

The quieter winter months can be very challenging for small businesses. Sometimes it feels like everyone is on holiday and retail is hibernating. This is a great opportunity to invest some time into rethinking your business and marketing strategies.

Over the past three years, social media has become a very important communication tool to us, connecting us with a large, wonderful community of KAMERS lovers on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. We cannot recommend investing time and energy into a proper social media strategy enough to any business owner, but especially small entrepreneurs can benefit from it immensely. More than a marketing tool; these platforms provide an opportunity to make invaluable connections with your customers and supporters. When you are a small business without a large marketing budget, this can be just what you need to grow your business to the next level.

If you want to get started with social media, develop a proper strategy and develop your design skills a bit, but it all feels too intimidating or overwhelming, Social Sessions is just the solution for you. We have blogged about Social Sessions’ two-day practical workshops before and the good news is their next workshop is happening in Joburg soon, with a Cape session also on the horizon.
