One thing is for sure, there’s is a new trend in Social Media and if you are in sales – then you need to sit up and pay attention. SoLoMo – short for social-local-mobile – refers to a more mobile-centric version of the addition of local entries to search engine results. SoLoMo emerged as a result of the fast growing popularity of smartphones, and provides greater local precision to search engine results than what’s available via a PC. Join us for this half day workshop as we explore this fascinating and exciting new trend.

This workshop forms part of our Digital Commerce series of events and is free to attend for current members of the Sales Institute and members can use the panel below to register. The rate for non-members to attend is €150. For more information about becoming a member please click here or alternatively, contact the Sales Institute on 01 662 6904 or email
