Conduct research on companies and individuals. Develop story ideas. Build a personal brand. LinkedIn can help journalists do all of those things and more, and SABEW’s next teletraining session will teach you how. We’ll do a deep dive with Yumi Wilson, a social media expert and former LinkedIn trainer, who will demonstrate the social media platform’s research tools and share best practices on how to use LinkedIn to build a brand. This intermediate-level discussion will be aimed at business journalists who already have a working understanding of LinkedIn and a desire to learn more.
As a bonus offering, Yumi will do a follow-up, one-on-one tutorial with one participant selected from the April 9 session.
