OK, we had a such an overwhelming demand for our October Melbourne Content Kin workshop that we’re squeezing one last date in for 2014.
When: 10am – 4.30pm, Wednesday 26 November 2014
Where: Tanner & Teague, 287 Smith St, Fitzroy
We get such a buzz filling a room with curious, open minded, big hearted souls, all learning together and connecting with one another, we’re glad to be alive.
If you have digital strategy, online & content marketing, social media, blogging, online selling and SEO questions that you’d like answered, then book your seat and come and talk with some humans who have a bunch of insight, advice and tactics you’ll love.
Complete your interactive Content Marketing Kit through during the day and get clear about who your tribe is (and it’s made up of different types of people, not just one ‘ideal’ type), identify your core content themes, understand how content fuels ecommerce and online retail, blogging, SEO, social media, community building and customer engagement, and know exactly which social platforms to invest time in and how to get the most out of them. We cover it all! And that’s why our workshop is a full day – because you walk away with plans that you can implement the minute you next check your Facebook feed.
ABOUT THE #CONTENTKIN WORKSHOP
A creative and interactive workshop for businesses, exploring social media and content planning ideas and challenges.
At the end of the workshop you will walk away with a defined social media and content strategy, and an actionable plan. And it will be fun! There will be coloured sharpies. There will be snacks. There will be big sheets of paper!
:: Identifying your why, and understanding why this is super important (SUPER)
:: Getting clear about your content marketing strategy and the new marketing paradigm in this social landscape
:: Defining customer personas (yes, you’ll have multiple ‘ideal’ customers/readers)
:: Knowing content people crave and what your core content themes are (because they’re unique to you)
:: Content audit (you’d be amazed at what you already have at your finger tips)
:: Developing a content calendar (this is where your strategy comes to life)
:: Tools for managing & measuring social media (streamline your efforts and become a productive social media pro)
:: Q&A session for specific questions (‘cos we know you’ve got some burning inside you!)
Numbers are limited (under 15) to ensure each attendee has their specific needs catered for.
WHO IS IT FOR?
You’re likely to be a small to medium business, with a wholehearted, creative and curious entrepreneurial spirit at its core. Or you could be a marketing or comms person in a larger business looking for some really hands on practice advice. Maybe you’re already using some social media platforms but would like a more structured, organised approach to your efforts. Maybe you’d like to understand how you could better utilise your existing content across different platforms. Maybe you’re just at a bit of loss as to where to start and would like to create a map to guide you on your content marketing and social media journey. Maybe you’ve got a bunch of questions and want to hang out with peeps that can answer them.
We’ve had people from one person start-ups to marketing professionals working in Australia’s largest businesses attend our workshops. What they all have in common in curiosity, humility, determination, tenacity and the desire to be great at what they do. If that sounds like you, there’s a chair waiting for you in some of the most Instagram worthy creative spaces we could find on the east coast.
Come learn, engage and plan!
Q: Will I need to bring a computer?
A: No. This isn’t a workshop that has you sitting in front of a computer. This workshop is about learning, thinking, creating and planning in a hands on way. We find that it’s the time you spend away from a screen that allows you to stop and reflect, organise your thoughts and be creative. If you’d like to bring your computer or iPad you’re more than welcome to, but is isn’t required. (Please not there is no internet access available at the venue).
Q: What will I get out of it if I’m already using social media?
A: Most of the businesses we work with already have some approach to social media or content marketing. But what they lack is a strategic approach and plan to their efforts, which often results in feeling like they’re not quite sure what they should be posting, and feeling disorganised in their execution. We’ll help you with both of these things, so you walk away with an actionable plan.
Q: What could I bring?
A: Any marketing documents or plans you already have relating to your business (don’t worry if you don’t have any), any examples of social or content campaigns you like, any insights around your current social and content activities, a list of questions you’d like answered.
Q: What kinds of things will we be doing?
A: The workshop will be very hands on, and will have you working through a series of mindmaps, checklists, worksheets and calendar templates. And of course, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask specific questions throughout. The numbers for the workshop are limited to a small group (less than 15) to ensure everyone has a chance to get the most of the workshop. The aim of the workshop is to have your social media strategy documented and content calendar planned for the next 6 months, so that you feel more organised and purposeful in your social media efforts.
Absolutely wonderful day full of creativity and solid information about creating social media content. Even better – the day was fun and a great opportunity to connect with others in this space like me!

From my initial contact with Kylie Lewis about her Social Media workshop, to attending on the day, I found her energy and enthusiasm for social media and community absolutely infectious. Both Kylie and Belinda shared such valuable advice from their gathered experience, and their skills and knowledge were presented in a fun and thought provoking manner. I would love to attend any of their additional workshops in the future and can’t wait to get to work on Monday to put everything I learnt to use!
