Social Media for Startups workshops

Coach: Johanna Mäkeläinen, Copywriter & Senior Lecturer in Marketing and Corporate Communication at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences

Course description:

Effective digital channels are a must for any successful business. Marketing, sales and customer service are all becoming more and more digitalized. Digital channels also evolve faster than any other media making them tricky to grasp. Especially when you’re a startup without a dedicated army of community managers. So let’s figure out together how we can get the best of Web 2.0 without breaking our backs (or the bank). This course is suitable for those who already have a business idea and those who are just curious about digital media use in small business. So welcome all!

  • Learn the latest digital and social media trends for startups
  • Get acquainted with the tools and methods of the trade
  • Create content marketing for different digital channels
  • Share ideas and best practices with other likeminded students

“I took the Social Media for StartUps workshop last Autumn. We learned about the most popular social media channels and how to strategically use them together to maximize effect. I am already profiting from all the tools and knowledge by using them in my business. The teacher is very knowledgeable and the participants shared valuable information. I definitely recommend it!”
Marisol Pulido, Haaga-Helia student and coffee start up manager
