SMMS has really boosted our audience engagement. They have been promoting Poldark from the get go with fun & engaging content. They gathered behind the scenes material, developed a great relationship with our talent, worked closely with our production teams and have helped us ‘trend’ week-after-week. I couldn’t be happier.
SMMS are a pleasure to work with. They are creative, fun, quick to respond, and know how to get the most out of being on set. They work closely with our cast and crew to produce quality social media content, interactive Q&As, and they’re filled with ideas born of their expert knowledge. They have given ‘digital-life’ to our shows and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
The SMMS did a brilliant job running our social media campaign for The Last Post. Their posts were engaging, humorous when needed and always informative, and the team were able to create great content very quickly. They had an excellent range of posts, and we loved the competitions and cast Q&As. All in all, it was a fantastic experience working with them!
Jo Booth has worked for me as a Trainer, Content Designer and Consultant in Social Media Training at the BBC since 2016. She has a proven track record of delivering training that is relevant, inspiring and practical – addressing topics related to building audiences with social media, making shareable content, content production with mobile devices and everything related to making engaging visual content. She is an articulate and charismatic presenter and consistently gets excellent feedback from BBC delegates and managers. She has also demonstrated herself to be a supportive team player, always thinking about what’s best for our overall brand, and generously sharing her knowledge with colleagues.
I had a one to one training course with Jo from SMMS which was amazing and super helpful. She helped us kick start all our social media platforms and gave us some brilliant ideas to make social media fun and exciting. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jo and Optomen Television will 100% be using them again in the near future.
I can’t speak highly enough of SMMS, they have been great to work with and I would totally recommend Jo for any of your social media training needs. Thank you for everything.
“We commissioned Joanna to deliver a series of social media workshops to our business customers. We were delighted with the very positive feedback from our clients and with Joanna’s responsiveness to our requirements when we first discussed our ideas for the workshops. She listened and understood exactly what we were trying to achieve. One of our customers said, “The trainer was excellent, she delivered the courses in such a way that it was easy to understand and gave us some really great ideas that we have been able to put into practice.”
We were so pleased with the results we will be running more workshops in the coming months. Thanks Joanna.”
“May I just say what a pleasure it has been working with you, Jo, and your team this last two years. And continues to be. Your flair, guidance, problem-solving and energy represent a can-do approach which we at Laythams recognise has been a major contribution to getting us “on the map”, and in a fresh new way. There’s a lot of day-to-day detail and hard unseen work, as you know better than anyone, in the way you support and develop the Laythams web presence. Hence, the unique offerings at Laythams are being communicated increasingly and the hard work we ourselves are putting in is being rewarded with a growing business. Here’s to an continuing fruitful business partnership! Thank you!”
‘After attending training sessions on Social Media with Joanna I was so impressed that I booked her to deliver training to my management team. Feedback from the sessions was fantastic, everyone agreed that the training was delivered in an easy to understand and professional manner. I would totally recommend Joanna for any of your social media training needs.’
…the impact social media made to the campaign for each show is unquestionable. The programmes that ran active social media campaigns had a far higher number of votes and it was noted that following tweets and Facebook updates from show accounts, like Poldark’s, there was a spike in visitors to our website voting page.
“We commissioned Social Media Makes Sense to deliver a series of 6 two day ‘Digitally Savvy’ practical workshops to help 95 of our (mainly) female business clients from across Greater Manchester region to build functioning business Facebook and Twitter pages. Plus information on how to develop social media strategies, tips and tricks of scheduling posts and further useful information about the Cloud, Mailchimp, and other free marketing tools available on the internet.
“We received excellent feedback about the training, and had a very high retention rate over the two days.
“Additionally, Social Media Makes Sense delivered 10 ‘How To’ videos for the launch of our new digital TV website, again producing useful instructions for using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn all aimed at helping local businesses improve their online marketing presence using free tools.
“We are very happy with both the delivery and the positive results achieved by the attendees.”
‘We asked Joanna to provide us with training for our current students who are working to support the transition of new students into MMU. She pitched the session perfectly to suit the mixed audience of staff and students and we have booked Joanna again. I have absolutely no hesitation is recommending her. She is a rising star and definitely one to watch for the future.’
