Get Google+ Training in Scotland

Really excited to be working on two, new course to deliver training on Google products – especially Google+ – which seems to confound people more than most Social Media Platforms.

One will be aimed at Small Businesses (SMEs) and how they can leverage it to promote their company – whether it’s a product or service. This course will be delivered with Briain Tait from Aillum Online Marketing. Brian is a search (SEO) and analytics specialist who will tie in Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools for this course – in order to measure the Google+ engagement and ROI.

Google+ for Video Promotion

The other will be specifically used as a tool promote, short or longer, video content – through Youtube. Well hey, after all, Google owns it, right?

So if you’re looking for Google+ Training in Glasgow (or anywhere in Scotland really) then reach out.

Whenever I hear opinions like “Google+ is a Ghost town” aka “No one is on Google+” – I just think to myself “If you think Google Plus is a Ghost town, you’re doing it wrong or following the wrong people”.  It’s all about who you circle. To get the most out of it, you have to dig a little deeper to find people sharing content that’s an interest to you!

Women Into Business – Smart Social Talk

Next Tuesday I’ll be deliver a “Smart Social” talk at the Women Into Business networking event in Glasgow. There’s more over on the Thea Newcomb blog about that and how to register. If you’re a female business owner in Glasgow then I hope to see you there.

FACEBOOK’S 10th BIRTHDAY

John MacKay & Thea Newcomb - after appearance on Scotland TonightYesterday, on my personal blog, I posted a piece about a recent appearance on Scotland Tonight discussing Facebook’s 10th Birthday. Due to a fuzzy head, I hadn’t really responded in a way I’d hoped to whilst on LIVE TV, so I did a little “do ever” and expanded some more thoughts about the platform and why I “love and loathe it in equal measure”.

Also on the subject of Facebook, was another, great, video from Veritasium posted this week. Love this guy’s work on the subject of Facebook.

GLATITUDE’S NEW SOCIAL MEDIA TRAINING COURSES

Since arriving back to Glasgow, (after five, fun weeks in Silicon Valley), it’s been nose-to-the-grindstone working on a half day and full day  social media training course every day since.

I’ve spent countless hours sourcing material, reading articles, listening to podcasts to try to come up with the most relevant topics, stats and apps to cover on these two courses.

INTRO TO EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

Screenshot of SpundgeThis new course is aimed at people who are brand new to technology and social media. It’s very much aimed at newbies to Social Media platforms and applications like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Blogging and the Cloud.  We’ll also look at tools like HootSuite, Spundge

It can be run as a three-hour, broad overview class, or a six-hour more in depth training session.

INTRO TO SOCIAL MEDIA

This course covers much of what the Intro to Emerging Tech course covers, but covers more tools like Survey Monkey and participants will leave with a social media strategy they can then leave and apply in their own business or organization. This course is a full day course.

NOTE: These can be delivered 1-2-1 or as part of a group. 50% funding may be available for either course. Ask for more details.
