Community, ads and a friendly chatbot: developing your digital presence

Are you making the most of your social media presence? With huge reach, instant sharing, and a sense of community, social media can drive bookings for your centre and needn't cost the earth. If you want ideas and confidence going forwards, we've got a set of sessions for you at the Marketing Conference on Friday 7 February.

James O'Donnell and Chris Bruno will help you put the social back in social media by making the most of your online community; Abby Coften will show you how to put your course on the map with Facebook Ads and the latest algorithm changes; and, if you have been thinking about using a chatbot, join Luke Simmons for a how-to and best practice for your 24-hour assistant.

Paired with sessions on effective content marketing, SEO and customer journey mapping, this conference is sure to make sure you get noticed online. And we'll be curing your social media ailments in our social media clinic, run by Richard Bradford of Disquiet

The day will open with a plenary from editor in chief and then chief executive during a period of critical change for Time Out magazine. Tim Arthur will share lessons from leading the Time Out brand to success and expansion through creativity, innovation and a relentless focus on the customer.

Then, before a social drinks reception sponsored by Disquiet Dog, we will be inspired by someone who rose to the top of their sport, became an Olympian and Britain's most successful female kayaker. Anna Hemmings will share her tale of triumph over adversity leaving us feeling positive and ready to implement new ideas back in the office on Monday.
