Free lunch and learn sessions will help businesses with their social media

Social media experts at Visually Explained are launching free ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions for businesses. The aim of the sessions is to help them get more savvy with social media.

Yola O’Hara, Managing Director of Royal Wootton Bassett-based Visually Explained, said the fun and informative half-hour sessions would help businesses and their employees become more confident with using social media. And further overcome any reluctance they may have.

How to join in the social media fun

To take part, businesses must book a private slot with Yola, as they are not drop-in sessions. The sessions are online, so employees can join in whether they’re in the office, working from home or elsewhere.

Yola said: ‘There’s no set structure. We can chat about any social media topic that is relevant. Perhaps people want to talk about how to use LinkedIn? Or they could have questions about Twitter or reels on Instagram. Whatever the topic, we can offer some bitesize information for a business and the team to take away.

‘It’s not formal training. The team bring along their lunch, we have some fun and they get to ask us about social media.’

Yola says the sessions will particularly benefit sectors less familiar with using social media as a marketing tool. For example manufacturing, engineering and construction.

‘Social media is so important in raising the profile of a business but many are still reluctant to utilise these platforms. Much of that reluctance stems from lack of knowledge and understanding. I want to turn this around by giving them the confidence they need to get posting. It’s my belief that the Lunch and Learn sessions will help businesse. The sessions will give them and their teams an insight into the value of social media and how essential it is for brand visibility.

‘Bookings are already coming in and we’re excited for our first lunch session with civil engineering firm Abley Letchford Partnership. They’re most keen for their team to find out more about LinkedIn.’
