Social Media Training
On Friday 1 June, Joline Bouwer met at Captovate with Karen Hawkes to discuss social media. In particular we discussed how to get staff on board, researching other organisations and how to link with them.
Social media is important to Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board because it gives us increased exposure. Through social media such as Facebook, we can reach a target audience in an affordable way.
It is important to get staff involved in our social media strategy because their in contact with people on the islands and can tell us about all of the amazing work that is being done. The challenge is our staff is very busy so we need to find ways to make it easy for them.
There are lots of people and organisations with big followings on Facebook. Our strategy will include tagging and following the Department of Education and the Department of Housing, and people like Senator Scullion and Senator Malarndirri McCarthy.
We want all of our staff and Tiwi people to get onto our Facebook page. Please tag us in your Facebook stories and photos or send them to us and we will post. We would love to share those and spread the good news
