Get Started Quickly

You can waste hours of time trying to find out the best way to do things when you’re starting out. When you attend the Quick Start to Social Media for Business Course, you can jumpstart your learning by benefiting from my years of experience in training thousands of business owners how to get started. The steps that I am going to share with you are ones that I use in my own social media business. I will be showing you the exact strategies, tools and tactics that  I recommend for my clients who range from solopreneurs to multinational companies. I will share the secrets and shortcuts that have taken me years to learn!


Be Strategic to Grow

Start with the end in mind. Social Media has no value to you unless it helps you achieve your business objectives. I will teach you how to make sure your Social Media presence fits in with your business brand, how to create a Social Media Strategy for your business, how to attract new customers by optimising your profiles, how to find your potential customers online, how to build an engaged community and how Social Selling works and how to measure the success of your activities. All in plain English and as Jargon-free as possible.


Be Supported

You will not be going through this Quick Start to Social Media for Business Course on your own! Each training module has coaching questions which you submit to me and you will get feedback from me. You will have an initial half an hour 1-2-1 online consultation when you buy the Quick Start Course to help you focus on what you want to get out of Social Media and to help motivate you. There will also be a further hour long 1-2-1 online consultation with me when you feel that it is the best time. These coaching calls will be booked at a suitable time for both of us.
