Businesses invited to social media workshop



Ahead of the Christmas rush, ACIST Skillnet will hold a “Social Media Marketing Strategy for Christmas” at Treacy’s West County Hotel, Ennis on Thursday 17th November.

The 3-hour Workshops will focus on encouraging local business to build their festive social media presence over the hectic Christmas period with the minimum amount of effort and cost.

Starting at 9.30am, the workshop will allow attendees to assess their current social media presence, decide which platforms will work best for them, learn how to automate postings and ultimately boost festive likes and followers. The Workshop will also address quick tips on editing photos for easy posting.

A short break during the session for tea, coffee and festive pies will get you in the mood for Christmas!

The Workshop is offered at just €15 per person and attendees can register on Eventbrite or contact Network Manager, Stuart McCamley at

The ACIST Skillnet are funded by member companies and the Training Networks Programme, an initiative of Skillnets funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
