An action-packed two hours (for FREE!)

For the last six years or so Melton BID have been organising workshops covering all aspects of social media and digital marketing (with me as their tutor). These are always fully funded (ie FREE!) and also include a buffet tea. The workshops run from 6-8pm, at the council offices in Melton Mowbray.

There is a series coming up, all of which you can book onto now:


Monday 7th OctoberHow to write a blog that people will want to read

Blogging is the cornerstone of digital marketing. It is your starting point for social media content, as well as helping your website’s SEO. There is no need to be afraid of it, and as this session will get you writing straight away you need to bring a pen and paper!


Monday 14th OctoberHow to make your website work the best it can for the customers you want

This workshop will tell you how to immediately improve your website and therefore attract the right customers to your business. You’ll learn the power of a few simple tweaks, as well as practical use of analytical tools to help ensure that your website works hard for you.


Monday 21st OctoberKeeping yourself and your business safe online

Cyber security is a buzzword you hear a lot about, but do you actually know how to keep yourself and your business safe online? This workshop will show you how to manage your online presence in order to keep yourself protected from hackers and scams. Be prepared for a few shocks along the way!  


Monday 28th OctoberTelling your story through Instagram

We are visual creatures and there is no better place to tell the visual story of your business than on Instagram. This session will give you some top tips, as well as give you a clear strategy for your Instagram marketing.


If you want to use social media to get more customers, or are already using it, but don’t feel like you are doing it ‘right’, these two-hour workshops will give you the essentials you should know when it comes to using social media to market your business. No jargon, just loads of really useful information.

These workshops are for businesses in the Melton Mowbray area, so feel free to share this email with any colleagues or friends you have that way. To book on, you need to email me (, and Shelagh Core from Melton BID on
