Members from the local voluntary and community sector groups are invited to this free social media advice session. You'll get practical hands-on advice for putting social technology into action for your cause, to help you reach a wider audience and promote the good work you do.

Whether it's getting started sharing your group's stories and aims through blogging, forming a community around a Facebook group, or reaching out and engaging new supporters and service users through Twitter, our volunteer will be on-hand with suggestions on how to effectively use social media to promote an important cause.

This free event is for not-for-profit organisations and groups. Places are limited, so booking is essential.


Help given at Liverpool Social Media Surgery

  • How Why DIY helped Paul Doran to look at his overall digital strategy for Philosophy in Pubs. PIPs already has a web presence, with a blog, forum and google map. So we examined the best options for taking PIPs work further while relieving some of the emailing stress of newsletters. We discussed Twitter and mailchimp and geo location identifiers from IP addresses. Paul is going to take forward the suggestions to his board and decide how take these new areas forward.

  • How Why DIY helped Alex Nolan to Alex Nolan from Good Gym Liverpool came along to this SM Surgery. Now, Alex knows almost as much about SM as I do so it was strange to see him there on the other side of the desk. After a long conversation which really delved deep into what it was that Good Gym was about, we finally started getting to the crux of the matter, the messages they were sending out just weren't what people wanted to hear. The group do some really cool work for community organisations helping them with manual labour jobs that they couldn't ordinarily pay for - the trouble is they run there and although many people are really up for helping out community organisations they just weren't that into the running element of Good Gym. So hopefully he has gone away with different ideas for achieving the same aims and a handy few hints and tips on improving their social media profile. Recorded on Thursday 9 May 2013
  • How Why DIY helped Sam Avery to The Comedy Trust is a fantastic organisation that offers comedy workshops at their venue and in the workplace. Sam Avery from Liverpool's Comedy Trust came along to discuss their Social media needs and if I can remember without the aid of notes, we discussed their website (Joomla) and how it's functionality could be put to better use. Simply by adding a news section and posting regularly about their activities, videos, workshops etc., would help them generate leads to the site. We also discussed the use of Mailchimp, and how they should take control of their own mailing lists. Hootsuite and other twitter clients plus how they should be taking advantage of Youtube and the hours of videos they have. I've had the fun experience of attending a Comedy Trust workshop with ex-colleagues from Arts Council England so book one today. Recorded on Thursday 9 May 2013
