Next SOCIAL MEDIA HUB Workshop: 24th and 27th October 2017


Video is a powerful way to communicate.

Videos on auto-play catch attention and help your social media posts stand out from the crowd.

Include captions, and it’s a quick way to appeal to people in their preferred learning style – i.e whether they prefer to read, listen or watch media.

Videos allow you to explain complex issues more clearly.

This month’s Social Media Hub meeting on 24th and 27th October 10am to 12 noon, will cover:

  • how to record and edit video using a smartphone,
  • how to use live video to boost engagement,
  • how to create video using static images!

You can also hear from our guest speaker, local businesswoman, Denise Bretton. Denise owns two businesses and is the Norfolk co-ordinator of The Womens Business Network. Denise will talk about how she uses video to promote her businesses, and will show you practical examples. 

Denise says:

“The Acorn [Automatic Clay Pigeon Traps] business has been established over 20 years. We have had to move with the times and technology and accept the fact that business is done differently these days, very differently!  We have made sales from a bored businessman with an interest in clay shooting finding our video online, which resulted in a visit and subsequent export to the UAE, as one example. He was not thinking of buying one of our machines at all. And that’s the point. To inspire and put ideas in people’s heads so they REALLY want and need what it is you have.”

Feedback from previous sessions:

“Introduction to Hootsuite esp. for the management of Twitter was nothing short of a revelation and, similarly, I had really underestimated the power of LinkedIn.   Your hand-out notes are a great aide memoire.”

“Thanks for today. Brilliantly useful again! I can honestly say I have never enjoyed learning so much as I do from you and Chris.”

“Having known Sara for some 7 years made the initial decision easy, though her depth of knowledge (of LinkedIn) and delivery blew everyone away. Sara gave an initial 30 minutes talk and Q&A then followed by a 3 hour training course on LinkedIn. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She has so many tips, ‘tricks’ and common sense approach to this so powerful tool – LinkedIn.
Would I hire Sara again – yes, would I recommend Sara to all – yes, did I have great feedback from the delegates – yes!”

“I have known Sara for a number of years now and never cease to be amazed at her vast knowledge of all things Social Media. Sara has a very natural and down to earth way of explaining this vast subject so that you can understand and start implementing your learning immediately.”
