Thanks for dropping by to browse my website!

I am the founder of Social Media Executive, which I set up in 2017. I started off by running a few courses on demand for friends and local businesses which led  to private consultancy, my social coach programme and more recently the development of online training.

I started off in the social media world probably much the same way as you did. Facebook was my first platform, purely for social purposes, I was a new mum and felt quite isolated so Facebook was a great way of connecting with friends.

It was quite a revelation to connect with so many people from the confines of my own home, so retuning to work I started implementing social media into many of the programmes I was managing to engage with businesses and the community.

It saved us a lot of time and money, as well as increasing our reach significantly.

For many years now, I’ve been using Social Media as a significant part of my marketing strategy, with great results across the Public, Private and Voluntary sector.

I learnt an awful lot about what not to do when I first started using Social Media as a marketing tool, because it’s not as simple as it seems! Fortunately, I’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to!

Just before I launched Social Media Executive I worked for Nomad Games, increasing their Social Media community from 4000 to over 20,000 in the space of three years. Now this is not a huge increase, but it was highly targeted. They were fans that bought from us time and time again, interacted with our content and were loyal supporters of the brand.

My methods are not to collect followers, they are to attracted customers. Quality not quantity.

I love showing companies how to get business from social media, and my methods do work. I follow all the latest trends in Social Media as well as the regular algorithm changes so you don’t have to.

If you don’t know me yet I’d like to say you’re missing out on a treat, but actually what you are missing out on is potential customers as well as lots of free tips on how to improve your social media pages.

So, make sure you’re following me on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, I’d love to connect!
