How to use Social Media to drive traffic to your WordPress website

So you’ve built your website, now what? With the many available self-publishing tools out there, content publishers should not adopt a “Build it and they will come approach.” At the end of this presentation you should have a basic understanding of the most popular social media sites out there right now (it changes a lot with new ones popping up all the time!) and be able to assess which platforms would work best to drive traffic to your website.

We will: learn about the most widely used platforms and who uses them, how to decide if they would be right for you and how to develop a basic plan to maximize the use of social media.

Presented by Stéphanie Montreuil, a marketing communications & social media strategist with over 10 years experience in global organizations, as well as non-profits & associations.
