I signed up for Nicky’s social media strategy programme because I didn’t understand how social media could help me with my business. I am much clearer now. The package included bite-sized online training (videos and written text), online questions which I answered and Nicky coached me on – parts of which really made me think! Plus a 1-1 session where I picked Nicky’s brain. Nicky is delightful and gave me a huge amount of value, more than I was expecting. I highly recommend Nicky – she really knows her social media stuff!
