Social Media for Sport
Social Media is at the heart of the way we communicate today. Whether you text, tweet or email; use flickr, You Tube or Ustream, or are one of the many millions using Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn to keep in touch or make new contacts, you're part of this modern phenomenon. And if you're an athlete or work in the sports industry, good use of social media can offer fantastic benefits.
Alfi Media's social media training for sport will help you understand what social media can do for you, your profile and that of your sport. And yes, you need to be aware of the pitfalls - a careless tweet or inappropriate post here, a drunken photo there and you can end up in trouble with your friends, your sponsors and your sport's governing body, or even plastered over the front and back pages.
Alfi Media's training will help you master the art of social media communication and become a confident and creative user within the world of sport.
