Social Media is a fantastic affordable way to promote your business and interact with your customers, on the Thursday 23rd August from 9.30am till 4.00pm I will be hosting a social media workshop at the Red Lion Quarter, Spalding.

  • Facebook – the difference between profiles, pages and groups
  • Twitter – how to build followers, who love what you do and will Retweet your Tweets
  • LinkedIn – How to make your profile stand out
  • Pinterest – How to use Pinterest to drive traffic to your site
  • Google + – The one for the boys.
  • QR codes – How to generate them and how to use them.

Antonia Bates is a jewellery designer and mum who started out on Twitter February 2012

4 months later with some advice from me and a lot of work on Antonia’s part putting into place my recommendations.

Follow Antonia @abb73 on Twitter or have a look at some of her designs AB Designs on Etsy

To help Antonia on her way I retweet some of her inital tweets to my followers (over 1000) and introduced her to some of my contacts on Social Media that I thought would be useful to her.  A big part of her success on Social Media is that she interacts with people and also recommends people that she thinks might be of interest to her followers.

Here are a few of the things that I do to help my clients:

  • I follow them on all the Social Media sites that they are on
  • I retweet some of their tweets (I have over a 1000 followers on Twitter)
  • I mention them in #ff on Twitter
  • I share their post on Facebook
  • I pin images of their products on to my Pinterest boards
  • if I know people that would be useful to my clients I introduce them

So if you would like to see how I use Social Media to promote my business and the businesses of my clients then book on to this workshop.  It is the only time I will do a workshop like this at this price.

As an added bonus, all attendees will get £5 off any of my future workshops.

The workshop is limited to 20 places and as an introductory offer for those people that have never worked with me before it is amazing value at only £20 (not including lunch). To book a place please contact me via the Contact page.  I look forward to meeting you in the future and doing work with you.

  1. Here is what one of my clients had to say about working with me:
    “Thank you so much for opening our eyes to the wonders of using Social Media to benefit mine and my partner’s businesses, Jackie. We found the session really clear and informative and not only did it give us inspiration for new ways in which to further our businesses, it also gave us fantastic insight into how to get the most out of each aspect of Social Media. You have such innovative ideas, and coupled with your expertise you are worth your weight in gold! We would highly recommend you to any future clients.”

  2. As someone pretty new to Social Media I wanted to work with someone I trust, who is knowledgeable, approachable and fun to work with. Jackie has exceeded all expectations and helped me turn my own ‘must get round tuits’ regarding social -media into real ‘doits’. I shall continue to work with Jackie and looking forward to attending her course on the 23 Aug 12. Thanks Jackie for being “Amazingly Helpful”. Plse RT 🙂

    • Hi Dave. Really looking forward to seeing you at another of my workshops. You have really taken on board my advice re Twitter and your blog. Keep up the brilliant work.
