Effective use of social media is now an established marketing tool and is helping many businesses thrive. There is a fundamental shift taking place in how people find businesses and how companies communicate on the internet. In a recent survey over half of the UK SMEs that responded confirmed that they utilise social media to support their marketing efforts.
The most common purposes given for engaging with social media was to help increase brand awareness (27%) and boost sales (15%). Skillsfirst has responded to these trends by developing the level 3 Diploma in Social Media for Businesses, which is used within the Advanced Apprenticeship in Social Media and Digital Marketing.
