Annabel Bird,  Bleak House     "I own an online store called Bleak House. I have been on Instagram for a while and was finding it fairly easy to grow my account but was finding it very hard to make sales through the platform. I have done a few other Instagram courses, and although they helped me improve my Instagram gallery and my photography and help me engage and connect with people, they did nothing to help me convert followers to customers. As soon as I started working with Sam  (1:1) , I saw a tangible increase in the number of sales I made directly through Instagram. Sam’s knowledge of retail and selling is a great asset, and her ability to personalise her advice to your specific needs is invaluable. She is 100% focused on sales and profit and for a shop owner like me she's a breath of fresh air.I still work with her on an ad hoc basis as she keeps abreast of all the new developments in building a brand and selling through Instagram."

  Antonia Taylor,  Antonia Taylor PR     "I decided to attend the  "How to Build Your Brand on Instagram"  workshop as a bit of an investment. I intended to sharpen my game, get more strategic and creative and connect with other 'Grammers. As a bit of a Social Mouth and Small & Mighty Podcast fan, I had a fair idea of Sam’s approach and expertise when it comes to helping creative businesses up-level their Instagram.   What I didn’t expect from the day was the big picture brand strategy Sam brought to life – and how Instagram plays into our identity, client offers, and online audiences. Sam is high energy, open, approachable; it was like hanging out with a very smart, very helpful, expert friend who is as passionate about your business as you are. So, basically, like gold dust.  Thank you, Sam.  It’s not a coincidence that, in less than a week, my Instagram output, engagement, and following has been turbo-charged. If you’re looking at building your brand through Instagram, I can’t think of anyone I’d recommend over Sam."

  Sarah Blythman,  Reg & Bob     "Not only did I thoroughly enjoy my  1:1 day  with Sam - I left with a very clear picture on how I should manage my social media to progress my business.  Her knowledge and understanding are excellent and she gives very clear feedback and support.  This support is on-going after the session in many different guises and I have found this to be invaluable.  She has created  an amazing community of like-minded small businesses which also provide help and guidance."     edit:   less than four weeks after our session, Sarah received her first order directly from Instagram!

It is full of useful tips and information - plus you get to spend time with other small business owners who understand how daunting doing it all yourself can be! I now feel I really understand what I am doing and can engage my Instagram community."

  Natasha Nanner,  Broadgate     "Sam was a pleasure to have with us at Broadgate for our very first  Instagram masterclass . We wanted to introduce this exciting social media subject to our audience as part of our new tech-inspired workshops and Sam was the ideal person to do this, as she gave attendees a real insight into the basics of Instagram and how to start building a presence online. Even for the more social-savvy attendees, there were tips and tricks for getting the right photo for your feed or using the best hashtags - we all learnt something new and thoroughly enjoyed Sam's clear and honest way of presenting! Everyone was engaged and left feeling invigorated about using Instagram to grow their following. Thanks Sam!"

Oh, and she made it fun and engaging too. It was lovely to meet some other likeminded brands. I would recommend this course to all small business owners wanting to create a meaningful Instagram marketing campaign that converts."

  Lisa Bradshaw,  LisaB Pilates     "I am a complete cynic when it comes to social media and a total self-confessed techno-phobe. So the thought of spending  5 hours  being coached on the benefits of Instagram made me shudder….and then the lovely Sam walked in! She was so personable, humorous and I have to admit fascinating.     Not only did she teach me the technical side of Instagram, but also the etiquette, the do’s and definite don’ts, how to create interest and get involved in the community. She even showed me how to take excellent photos on my phone. In two weeks not only have my likes and followers soared (not a necessity but it’s kinda cool) but I have generated real business. People who I would not really have come into contact with are now registering with me as clients. Happy Days!    I am no longer afraid of social media, I am certainly much more confident and would actually go as far as to say I am enjoying it. All thanks to Sam"

The penny dropped countless times in our session and what's great it that Sam's strategy will carry through to many other elements of our marketing.  Another wonderful bonus was her knowledge of the beauty business which was really useful for me.  The  (1:1)  session was worth every penny!"

  Marianne strange ,  protect my pet    I own a subscription box service called Protect My Pet. We use a number of different social media channels and rely heavily on user-generated content (generally cute dogs and cats!) and whilst we love receiving content from our customers, this comes with its own challenges, as every photo we receive is completely different to the last. Sam fully understood our business and why we do what we do and with her expert help and advice, we have learned how best to utilise our content with the sole purpose of increasing engagement and converting followers into customers. We’re not perfect and still very much a work-in-progress but thanks to Sam we have started to see the benefits of being on Instagram and we will continue to put all of her advice into practice! Thank you Sam!

  NICCY ISEMAN ,  TYPE AND STORY   Sam's e-course has been totally game changing for my business.  I had been doing it all wrong - who knew - there is actually a strategy to social media and it isn't use pretty pictures!  The e-course was broken down into small bite size chunks of info which is easy to digest but the winning foruma for me was the audible option which allowed me to cook / tidy / organise my baby whilst also feeling motivated as I was learning at the same time! The information is real, relevant and humanised with Sam at the other end offering many channels of support. I have been and will continue to recommend Sam's e-course to my creative pals. This is by far an essential course for any small business on social media.
