How to tell online stories that get your organisation noticed in the digital world
Today’s wired world creates a brand new communication dynamic, requiring new digital skills. But building a digital strategy is not just about technology, it is also about the stories we tell. That is why you need to think beyond your organisation’s website, ensure your content ranks high on web search engines and learn to become an interesting online storyteller.
Our aim is to teach you how to get your message across in the digital arena so that your online strategy aligns with the communication goals of your organization. Rather than building a website and then deciding how to communicate online, we want you to develop a structured approach to digital thinking. This means learning how to produce engaging online content and promote it so that people notice it and act on it. We want you to walk away with hands-on experience of how to craft a digital strategy for your organization.
