Suitable for ALL skill levels.

This month's talk is of special interest for anyone who uses, or is thinking of using, their WordPress blog and social media to grow a following.

There'll be an opportunity to meet, discuss, and problem-solve for everyone before and after the main talk.

* About the talk:

Working on the Third Sector, we have utilised WordPress as our platform to build the community.

We believe it is very important to keep a strong connection with our audience to establish a long-term relationship that can keep us growing and allow us to increase the support of our cause and activities.

Luna Carmona will share some of the tips and knowledge that she has gained during the journey on how to improve your blogging skills, how to make your platform more interactive and engaging and how to make your audience feel ownership of it.

At the same time, she believes this is really useful for many people who navigate the online world as a business but with the intention of having a bigger impact, creating content that builds that 'community feeling' and also making a social difference.

As Social Responsibility becomes more and more an essential element for many companies, we need to improve the use of our online platforms and experiment new ways of activism even when the first intention might be to just increase the audience.

No matter what your sector is, building your online community has an incredible effect on your organisation. For Achieve More Scotland it has been a complete game-changer.
