Social Media is making it easy for the smaller business to engage with their current customer base, other local businesses and potential new prospects. What’s more this is relatively free to do, with the exception of the time taken to do your posts, comments, articles etc. My background and experience lies with the visual design so I instantly decided to attend one of the FREE social media cafes that are being hosting in my area.
I can honestly say that this has been of great benefit to me as a small business owner, as it has allowed me to ask questions, learn new ideas, share thought processes with other likeminded business owners.
The concept of FREE networking in today’s business environment is rare, but Jayson Gurney, the founder of various local Social Media Cafes believes there is still a place for it. Jayson has successfully establish 4 such groups all who meet on a set day of the month with the sole purpose of sharing knowledge to help each of it’s members gain the most from using Social Media, whether its Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube or any of the other platforms.
This success has lead Jayson to formally setup a new business, The Social Media Consultancy Limited, which will continue to offer these FREE networking / focus groups. I was overwhelmed when Jayson asked me to design, both the individual group logos and the new Limited companies logo and associated stationery.
