A series of workshops to help businesses in the Ballymena area boost their Social Media impact are being held as part of a Chamber of Commerce support strategy.

Ballymena Chamber’s Business Development Manager Rodney Kernohan explained: “Most businesses have some form of Social Media Platforms to promote their products and services. Some use Facebook, some use Twitter, others use Linkedin but the question is what’s the difference and most importantly do we know how to use Social Media for Business to its full potential?”

And it is for that reason that the chamber has employed the services of Bill McCartney, an international social media trainer, based in Northern Ireland.

Rodney said: “Bill has trained and advised a diverse range of clients, from sole traders to large companies, enterprise agencies, charities, Government and Law Enforcement. He is endlessly passionate about helping people use Social Media for Business effectively.

“Bill will confirm the rights & wrongs of using Social Media for business, he will offer you ‘hints & tips’ on how to improve the presence of your on-line platform, how to better engage with prospective customers and clients and ultimately raise your company’s profile.”

If you would like to join Ballymena Chamber of Commerce’s next half day workshop, the cost is only £35.00 including refreshments and lunch. Please contact Rodney at or phone him on 07799 797672.
