Training workshop on Social Media and Digital Marketing for Museums and other Heritage Institutions
A large portion of the population expect to find what they want on the social media challenges. Museums, and all heritage institutions, must capitalise on this social media trend in order to market themselves, and to built and promote their digital brand.
