Shoo Social Media Planner

Looking for an easy way to strategise your social media marketing? Look no further!   If you’re like 98% of the world then you’ll be hoping and praying that 2017 will be YOUR year. The year that makes you. The year your small business grows into a monopoly. The year that Ilkley Town FC win the cup. THE YEAR. At best, we’re all just hoping that it surpasses the miserably prolonged length of time that those who dare to utter it’s name call “2016”.   So it’s January. By now you’ve probably already broken your ‘dry January’ and you’re looking glumly at the direct debit you’ve set up for the gym, yet you haven’t actually managed to go yet.

Hotels, bars and restaurants are particularly well placed to shout from the social media rooftop but are they using it to their full advantage? Although good old-fashioned word of mouth still helps to promote and influence such businesses, consumer habits are changing.

Reporting and numbers

I was recently asked to guest blog for Debbie Whitaker at Not Just Numbers http://www.notjustnumbersltd.co.uk/and I was given the challenge to write about social media with an accountancy twist! So I have decided to publish and share the blog here. The word social is crucial here – since when did we have a conversation with a friend and want a statistical analysis on that conversation?
