Social Media Toolkits
Ever wanted to find out what Facebook is all about?
Need to find out about the seemingly confusing world of Twitter, how to use it and why it might be useful for your community to jump on the band wagon?
If you are a complete novice with no idea where to start then help is on hand. We have produced two useful guides that walk you step by step through the process of setting up and using both Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as explaining why they can be a valuable tools for communities.
How to Set Up a Village Business Group
This new guide brings together the experiences of many informal groups made up of people who work from home in rural communities in Oxfordshire.
It describes how people got started, what they did, the ups and downs and what they all got out of it. Group organisers have contributed many practical tips on how to be successful.
There are two parts: some case studies - a description by the volunteer organiser of their group - and a collection of ideas, practical tips and examples of leaflets, emails and notices to use as templates.
We hope you'll enjoy using this guide.
A big thank you to the contributors: Beverley Chandler, Sarah Couch, Fiona Edlington, Nick Fennell, Tim Lyons, Ken Norman, Barbara Osborne, Paul Ryan, Miranda Salmon, David Thompson, Geoff Ward, Pete Watkins, Rachel Viney and the members of their groups for sharing their experiences.
