Many travel organisations use basic social media but how can you use it more effectively to set yourself apart from your competitors?

ABTA’s advanced level social media seminar is for those who have completed our Social Media in Travel course, or those who have a good understanding of social media platforms.

A number of social channels will be covered in-depth with a strong focus on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. Hear industry examples on how these channels are used and how to make them work for you.

You will learn the importance of having a social media strategy for your customers and your employees. There will be discussion on how valuable social influencers can be to your brand and you will learn how to choose the right influencer to connect with your target audience.

Want guidance on your marketing strategy and enhancing your brand?
