Social Media on Appointment

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest et al – nowadays it seems that there are endless, immediate ways to communicate and no limit to the audience. Almost every business has some on-line presence or personality. What social media perils lie in wait for an unsuspecting IP? And when taking control of a business on appointment, how do you take control of social media and the message?


In this webinar we will consider the social media channels that you need to think about, your strategy for identifying them and the people with access, and how to control them on appointment.  We will look at the advantages and disadvantages of closing the accounts or running them throughout your appointment.  We will also consider what social media policies and procedures you might need to check or implement if trading on.
