City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma – Social Media for Business
At Killester College for Further Education- An overview:
Half way through ‘Social Media for Business’ diploma course our Tutors in Killester College of Further Education ( #KCFSM ), Ms. Susan McEntegart and Mr. Keith Gregg have demonstrated how a Social Media can impact on any business. Part of the course Module Web Fundamentals, Website Creation and content management system – Makes this City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma a Unique Course.
We always seem to be clinging on to the word ‘Media’ and not analysing the Social Media Platforms, Social Media tools and Channels and how to use them effectively in a business. Though we see many companies/Businesses use Social Media, some of them seem to be not utilising them to bring traffic into their business or to provide customer service. Part of the study in this diploma is creating content to the social media and maximising engagement with the audience and reach them.
It is very important to study principles of keywords and optimisation- as end of this diploma we will be well able to create fully functional website-Thanks to Mr. Keith Gregg. As we all Know, the internet is a number of connected computers and networks, allowing the virtual transfer of data over said systems and networks –It is very important to learn HTML – the main language of the web XML – extensible mark-up, used as a format free file format that any system or human can interpret SGML – Standard General Mark-up Language, the precursor to both HTML and XML. CSS makes the website presentable.
Some of the project work involved is creating social media platforms for a business page. I have created a business page for ‘#Leociphotography’ – Live on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+. Please Visit:

I have now realised that how difficult it is to create content and post regularly on to social media. Thanks to Ms. Susan McEntegart- who also made us aware of the copyright on content and images on the internet. I am sure that end of the course we all will be experts on Social Media for Business and Building Websites.
