The Social Media Strategy Workshops Series at Cambridge Community Television (CCTV) are three workshops designed to be taken together as each one builds upon the next workshop. In this three session workshop series you'll be building your own social media strategy from the ground up, including making your own graphics with Canva, researching effective hashtags for your business, and reviewing how to post on different social media platforms. At the end of this workshop series, you'll leave with a social media plan that you can start using immediately!
