Really good insight into why people use each platform, and the way they use it - so content can be tailored most effectively. Came away with lots of quick wins and some more medium-term goals. What I learnt about LinkedIn has completely changed our plans, from focusing solely on our business page to working with senior members of staff to optimise their profile and host features that get sent out to their individual networks. Left the course feeling confident and inspired with heaps of ideas.
