Learning Social Media and gaining business benefits: Digital Treasure Hunts

Learning Social Media and gaining business benefits: Digital Treasure Hunts

The Runway Digital crew has been hectic of late! We’ve refined and refined the Digital Treasure Hunts services and products ready for lift-off. Druuum roll please…

The Digital Treasure Hunts’ services include:

* Hunts for large events (3 hours, 100+ people),

* One-day Hunts for groups of 15-60, and

* Company Hunts – many one-day Digital Treasure Hunts for relevant teams and departments, over your desired time-period, combined with ongoing competitions to embed learning.

* Optional extras include filming of the event, additional Social Media experts to further enhance learning, and advanced techniques for public events and more advanced users.

Company Hunts include an Social Media audit providing insight to your organisation’s level of Social Media understanding, your company’s online risks and opportunities – including how to improve Twitter, Facebook and other sites; your company’s online influence network (which is often yet to be tapped). We also tailor content to include your Social Media policy, work with you to decide an appropriate order on the training timetable (with respect to key priorities and urgent groups) and design a cross-company competition that has everyone engaged.

Pricing starts at $12,000 for a one day Hunt for 15 people.

Our vision is to bring Social Media to businesses in a way that delivers bottom-line results and has people learn new communication methods in a fun and productive way.

What’s exciting is that we’ve incorporated the workshops we’ve run successfully many times (Online Content Development and Growing your Online Audience), with a focus on business benefits, interactivity, and fun learning. Come on, come Hunting with us!

Our sessions – Online! Online Content Planning & Twitter Audience Building

We’ve been busily recrafting two of our unique sessions to an online format. We will be running two sessions 8 – 9 PM Melbourne time (EDT), Tuesdays 29 November, 2011 and 6 December, 2011.

Come along!

The sessions will cover:

1. Online Content Planning (creating months of non-time-dependent tweets and Facebook updates that are highly valued by your customers), and

2. Twitter Audience Building (finding and connecting with relevant customers and advocates – and doing so in a way where you can reach many people quickly).

These sessions will show how to use the Internet for the results you seek (such as: online sales, reaching your customers, etc) and how to have a Social Media system that gives you the most from the time you have available.

You can order your tickets here:

Samantha Bell will be running these sessions. Sam is the Managing Director of Runway Digital and has run this Social Media consultancy since 2006. She has refined the systems presented through thousands of hours of use and working with hundreds of clients. Information on Sam and Runway Digital is here.

Both workshops will include time for you to ask questions so that you gain a lot that is relevant to your business. Specifics on each session is below.

For those who have trained with Runway Digital in the past 6 months, these sessions cover ideas you have heard and remind you of specifics to reiterate what you have heard.
