How social media can benefit your business

Date Published: 05 March 2018
Do you use social media to boost your business and are you getting the best out of it?

To support the many retailers in the District, NKDC is hosting a free two-hour workshop with industry experts Kerching Retail sharing their top tips for making the best use of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, all of which can have a real impact on a business if they’re used in the right way.


There will be advice on what to post, when to post and how to make social media deliver for you.

With networking at the start of the event, taking place on Monday, April 16, it’s a great opportunity to make some new contacts as well.

Corin Birchall, from Kerching Retail, said: “With 75% of local people on social media and 95% of people under the age of 35 years, why do many businesses struggle to correlate social media activity with actual sales in the store? That’s what we will address in this two hour workshop. Turning clicks, likes, followers and shares into ‘money in the till’.”

Councillor Richard Wright, Leader of NKDC and Executive Board Member with special interest in Economic Development, said: “This is the latest in a series of workshops we’ve held to help retailers in the District and we’re pleased to be able to host this one.

“Social media is an important tool for any business and we want to make sure people know how to make it work for them.

“We remain committed to supporting businesses in North Kesteven, and seeing them grow and flourish.”

The workshop starts at 5.30pm and is being held in the Council Chamber at North Kesteven District Council, Kesteven Street, Sleaford.
