Social media is a tool used by many individuals, but businesses can still be slow to join the craze.

Onlincolnshire, a project run by the Lincolnshire County Council and funded by the European Regional Development Fund, is aiming to change that.

They are organising a series of free workshops to help local businesses get online and effectively use social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Workshops:

Thursday 30th October, Commerce House, Outer Circle Road Lincoln

9.30-12.30: Introduction to Social Media for Business

13.30-16:30: Facebook Social Media Surgery

Thursday 13th November, Commerce House, Outer Circle Road Lincoln

9.30-12.30: Twitter Social Media Surgery

13.30-16:30: LinkedIn Surgery

These sessions are part of onlincolnshire’s 12 business support programme that also includes one-to-one business coaching sessions and other internet related seminars. More information can be found by emailing them on onlincolnshire@lincs-chamber.co.uk
