Franke's More in Store September 'Expert Series' offers retailers a social media session
The next round of seminars provided by Franke as part of its More in Store campaign to support its participating independent specialist retailers, will focus on social media.
The seminars are free of charge and are being held around the country on Tuesday September 9th in Manchester, Wednesday 10th in the Midlands and Thursday 11th in London. Invitations and a newsletter have been sent to all More in Store members this week and further information can be found at www.moreinstore.co.uk, where members can book their place.
Franke has teamed up with Anna Woolliscroft and David Prescod of social media agency Market Avenue, based in Stoke on Trent, to deliver the morning seminars which start at 08.30 with breakfast and run until 12.00.
As well as running her own agency, Anna lectures on social media and will provide attendees with an overview of the different channels, advice on how to use them, campaign planning tips, implementation and monitoring, illustrated with real-time examples from the kitchen industry. The seminar will include a Q&A session at the end for retailers to pose questions specific to their business.
After the event, attendees will also be eligible for a Franke-funded email or Skype consultation with Anna to help them with social media as a way to promote their business.
Says Steve Rutter, marketing operations manager at Franke:
"Our seminars on showroom design were very well received by those who attended and social media is a topic that many retailers tell us they would like to get to grips with but aren't sure where to start - so here's their chance to come along and learn how it can become a useful business tool."
Launched at the start of the year, the More in Store campaign currently has around 1,300 participating independent retailers nationwide. It is free to attend.
