Social Media Policy & Etiquette in the Workplace Seminar. If you are still working on your social media policy and not sure where to start, this workshop will set you on the right path. WHY are you doing social media? Done right, it will increase your connections and productivity. Done wrong, it can lead to misunderstandings, frustration and more. Think about what social media can and will do for your business and how it can help you better meet your business goals. You can easily connect with your audience of clients, prospective clients, partners, media etc. What other benefits do you expect because of your efforts in social media? If your only answer to the "why" question is "my boss told me to" or "we have to because all of our competitors are doing it" then I challenge you to hit the pause button now. Explore what you need to succeed in the world of Social Media.
