arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>It was another fantastic Social Media Presentation held at the Golf NSW office last night. Based on the feedback received, many of us walked away inspired with tips to help us grow our digital network.  It was a real team effort to bring the presentation to the 25 attendees and ten groups via webinar. 

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>A big thank you to Golf Australia’s John Sutherland and Hamish Jones who flew in from Melbourne to give the presentation, to Rus Kirchner from Bonnie Doon Golf Club who gave us tips on using videos and to Vic Tsaccounis, Managing Director from Broadland Solutions, our Webinar Sponsor.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>John mentioned last night to contact him/us if you have any queries about social media.  It is a real treat to have such knowledge and talent a phone call away.  He has also offered to email us a summary of their presentation.  For anyone interested in receiving this please email us

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>Rus provided us with some things to consider when introducing video which included:

  1. your position in the market place
  2. your unique selling point
  3. your audience
  4. how your message supports your club&aposs strategic plan

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>If you haven't seen it yet … consider watching #Socialnomics 2014 by Erik Qualman to view the latest social media trends, which was touched upon last night. The figures show social media is a medium we can&apost ignore.  

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>This was also our very first live webinar, and it was a big learning curve…which did include some glitches. The possibilities are enormous and we can only improve as we move forward. 

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>Broadland Solutions are keen to help us present in the future, so if anyone is interested in having webinar sessions please let us know what you would like to view next.
