Samantha Burgess Social Mouth

Hi, I'm Sam

(and that little munchkin is Monty)

I'm the one-woman-band (for now) behind Social Mouth.

After 15 years working in the retail industry, (from the independent to the Global brand) I decided to go it alone and start my consultancy, offering the kind of advice usually only available to the big brands (with big budgets) to the small business owner. 

I’m a Social Media Consultant and Coach serving businesses all over the world from my home office in the Borough of Richmond-Upon-Thames, London. Most day’s you’ll find me at my desk surrounded by coffee cups listening to French Pop Radio on iTunes.

My primary focus as a consultant is to help you, as a small business owner, FIND YOUR VOICE on social media and not feel scared or mystified by it.

Ten years ago I was made redundant after the independent retailer I had worked for went into administration. I believe that if social media had been around then in the same way it is today, that shop would still be going, social media after all, is a completely free marketing tool!  I cheerlead small and mighty businesses and host a weekly podcast celebrating and supporting the small business owner and creative entrepreneur. 

Social Media is the primary source of how my clients find me, so I know first hand how important social media is to your business and how you can use these FREE marketing platforms to your benefit.

I love nothing more than seeing the success after my clients have started a coaching programme or completed an e-course, it makes me so happy to see the work I've created helping others. Watching start-up seedlings become small and mighty “micro-brands” is what I get out of bed for.

In my free-time, (if you can tear me away from Instagram) you’ll find me walking my miniature dachshund Monty while strolling the streets of London photographing doors (I have a real weakness for a beautiful front door). 

If you're in the Richmond-Upon-Thames area and fancy meeting for a (dog-friendly) coffee (alternatively there's always a Skype coffee-date) and discussing how we can make social media work for your business, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
