Social Mums is a network of local Facebook groups set up to help mums who run small businesses with their social media marketing.
We share helpful tips and advice to busy mums in business and our groups are a place local mums can support each other to grow their businesses using the power of social media, while being supported by a local social media expert or Social Mums Pro as we like to call them!.
We organise free local meet ups for group members where you can get to know other local mums in business and put a face to a Facebook profile picture!
We also run a series of regional workshops for small groups aimed at small business owners, solopreneurs and particularly busy parents juggling a business with raising a family. Covering all aspects of social media marketing, from workshops for Instagram beginners to a Facebook Advertising Masterclass.
How it all began
Social Mums was founded by Gemma Lloyd, (you can find out more about Gemma here) who graduated from the Digital Mums Advanced Social Media Management Course in 2015. Gemma found that the biggest advantage of being a Digital Mums graduate was being part of the incredibly supportive DMCollective Facebook Group. A place where all Digital Mums graduates, help and support each other in their roles as social media managers.
That was her inspiration for starting Social Mums, she wanted to create a place where Mums in Business could get the same support and have their questions answered about using social media for their businesses. So the first Facebook Group, Social Mums Tunbridge Wells was born, it has since been rebranded to Social Mums West Kent but continues to be an incredibly engaged and active Facebook group with regular monthly meet-ups too.
