Facebook Timeline Ideas for Businesses from Digital Marketers RAW Training

Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 12, 2012

Businesses were in desperate need of Facebook Timeline ideas when the social media monster made the switch, said todays DigitalMarketer.com article. Frankly, it scared some of them. Changes that are supposed to enhance the user experience usually end up messing with extensively strategized plans devised by online marketers. The article said once a Facebook marketing plan is perfected, Zuckerberg and Co. have to go and flip things upside down.

The article said theres no need to worry now that Digital Marketer has released its latest RAW Training course, Facebook Timeline For Marketers: Everything You Need To Know To Make The Switch. The course illuminates the key differences between the old brand page design and the new, stream-lined, image-driven Timeline for brands. The objective is to help businesses tell their brands story, maximize engagement, and showcase the most important updates.

DM training expert Kate Buck Jr. guides the RAW Training course, which was initially produced as a live webinar. Digital Marketing Labs members have access to the webinars, where they can watch and interact as the presentation is delivered.

Later, the RAW Training is offered on DigitalMarketer.com with downloadable handouts, a DM-designed Timeline template, and a list of resources that will help with technical issues. By the time the RAW Training is completed, there will be no confusion over how to market with Facebook.

Perhaps thats part of the problem, the article said. Marketers who merely accept the Timeline changes on Facebook and let them dictate how they approach their campaigns are the ones who stand little chance in improving their social media presence.

On the other hand, the marketers who embrace the Timeline switch, make the most of their new opportunities, and utilize the new features to boost engagement and widen their brands reach will spread their messages into the corners of the social media world, the article said.

This is the way Internet marketing works: something is invented, adapted to, perfected, and then changed. Its a constant carousel that marketers ride every day. Digital Marketers RAW Training is offering the information that can be used to move into the Timeline era with determination and confidence. For the most innovative and effective Facebook Timeline ideas, look to the advice of the expert team at Digital Marketer.

Digital Marketer releases Special Reports to help businesses and entrepreneurs gain insight and information on the trends, data, and strategies that can take them to the top of their industry. Through their training courses, strategic plans, blogs, newsletters, site reviews, and Special Reports, Digital Marketer supercharges every single marketing campaign it touches.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Safe Youth is a new training course developed by DigitalMe and Artswork, to meet the need of many arts and youth organisations that are keen to develop the skills and knowledge required to safely use social media to engage with young people.

The course, which was developed in consultation with e-safety expert Joe Plachinski, introduces the advantages and risks of using social media and provides tips for organisations looking to use sites like Facebook and Twitter to engage and communicate with young people, as well as promoting their services and events.

The course introduces acceptable use policies, which organisations can develop to advise and protect both staff and young people when using social networks.

Safe Youth also looks to provide trainees with the skills and knowledge to raise young peoples awareness of privacy and safety settings on sites such as Facebook, and manage their reputation, ensuring their online presence does not affect them negatively in the future. The one day course is accompanied by a comprehensive e-resource pack which includes activity resources to be used with young people to develop their knowledge and awareness, along with tips, guides and policy templates.

Safe Youth trainees at a recent session commented that the course was an incredibly useful day and left them feeling more equipped to move forwards in terms of young person led safe social networking and our dissemination of information, as well as marketing for projects.

DigitalMe ran break-out workshops at the Protect: Young People in the Arts Conference in London this week, which introduced the principles of Safe Youth and allowed delegates to explore their common concerns and potential solutions.

Safe Youth regional courses are currently available in Manchester and Bradford this Autumn, and can be booked through the Artswork website!
