Make your Newsrewired experience last one day longer by upgrading to Newsrewired+.
You will get an extra day of training the day after the conference in two skills which are essential for any modern newsroom: using TikTok for your journalism and building a newsletter strategy.
Both courses have a limited capacity of 25 to ensure a hands-on experience, and tickets are available now.
With a billion monthly active users and two thirds of its users under the age of 30, TikTok is rapidly becoming a platform journalists can leverage to reach young and diverse audiences through low-lift videos that have a high return.
Kassy Cho, a freelance journalist, producer and audience development strategist, will introduce you to the key skills to make the most of the platform, from finding stories to filming, editing, and defining your TikTok strategy.
Why do news publishers struggle to embrace TikTok?
Meanwhile, a growing number of journalism jobs either focus solely on newsletters or require knowledge of using them as a tool to grow your audience. By the end of the Newsrewired+ newsletter training course, you will have gained an understanding of different types of newsletter structure and the audiences they serve, newsletter analytics and how to use them, and you will work to create sample newsletters — or improve existing ones — as part of the workshop to gain practical, hands-on experience of how to do it and do it well.
This course is led by Adam Tinworth, a journalist of 20 years who now works as a consultant and trainer in digital journalism, social media and content strategy.
Quartz bets on newsletters to drive reader revenue
