Social media training in Birmingham

Here’s more information about the type of training we provide our clients. We will pick and choose exactly the social media modules you require. We provide bespoke one to one and small group training nationwide and from our HQ, right here in Birmingham.


  • General social media training
  • Create a solid grounding in the relevant social platforms to you. We’ll help optimise your profiles to create the best possible first impression before looking at a content and interaction strategy. This may focus on a particular platform or a combination based on your business and goals and will help you manage your own social media presences.


  • LinkedIn training
  • LinkedIn is an incredibly powerful tool for building a network and generating leads, especially in B2B businesses. Our LinkedIn training clients include Lloyds Banking Group, Deutsche Bank and British Athletics as well as celebrities, MPs and agents across the globe. We’ll assess your goals and current network and build a strategy as well as studying the functionality of the platform. Sessions can be delivered on a one-to-one or one-to-small group (up to 12) basis and usually take a couple of hours or a half day. We tailor sessions for the beginner, intermediate and advanced individual and groups. More on LinkedIn training.


  • Twitter training
  • Twitter is the most underused, undervalued and misunderstood social media tool. In fact, only 12% of marketers regard it as their most important social marketing tool although Twitter is widely regarded as the only true social media platform.


  • Appraisal

Our social media training can provide you with an appraisal on your current and potential social presence as well as ideas on content and strategy using the necessary social media platforms. Competitor analysis is also incredibly useful, as is a look at contributing marketing efforts such as blog-writing and email campaigns.


Social media coaching

Coaching contracts are proving increasingly popular with small businesses. This option represents the best of both worlds; expert social media management from our team whilst transferring the skills you need to take control when you’re ready.
