Is social media training really necessary for every business

  1. 1. Is Social Media Training Really Necessary for Every Business? By Tina Kyei Copyright © 2013 Tina Kyei
  2. 2. • Yes. I would say Social Media Training is necessary for every business.• Most business owners begin their social media journey by setting up profiles online, tweeting, posting and so on. They do all these only to realise that it’s not what it seems to be, because there is a difference between knowing and understanding social media. Copyright © 2013 Tina Kyei
  3. 3. • There is a need for training even if a business owner is not sure whether they need social media to grow their business. One must not assume that they do not need it at all. They can make up their mind after they have had some training from a reputable company. Copyright © 2013 Tina Kyei

  6. 6. • What does this tell you? Because you saw different service based businesses, that is not a good enough reason to assume that you do not need any training. To know whether you need training or not, consult the services of a social media coach and trainer who would go through your business, the goals you want to achieve whilst analysing your growth plan.
