Social Media Manager Programme

If you’re looking for a flexible career that will work around the kids, have you thought about training as a social media manager?

Maybe you’re already offering social media services but want to learn how to use the platforms like a pro, win new clients and manage them effectively.

Plus you’d love the support of an experienced Social Media Mentor, a Business Coach and a group of other women all going through the training at the same time who will not only guide you on the right path but hold you accountable over 12 weeks to complete the training and get your business off to a flying start.

Then our 12 week Social Media Manager Programme is for you!

This programme has been designed to give you up-to-date strategic training on using the key social media platforms so you have the knowledge to confidently manage them for clients.

We’ll also teach you how to build a successful social media business and get you set up with a brand and mission you’ll be passionate about.

Plus we’ll give you the skills needed to attract and find your dream clients and show you how to build relationships and work with them like a pro.

The programme is run entirely online and uses a mixture of live Zoom training sessions as a group, recorded training that you can work through in your own time, 1:1 sessions with your mentor and a dedicated Facebook group for peer and mentor support.

You will need to dedicate around 5 hours per week to get the best from the programme and this is an idea of how the modules are structured.

On top of this we will work on building your own business and brand and making sure you stand out as a social media expert.

What past participants have to say

For anyone looking to become a Social Media Manager this is THE programme for you.

Gemma has everything covered and more – all in easy to follow modules with a supportive Facebook group running alongside the programme with your cohort pals!

This programme is also great for anyone looking to seriously up their Social Media game and know all there is to know about platforms, trends, insights and insider tips and tricks.

The Tools provided alongside practical and real time knowledge and ‘know how’ are what makes this course stand out from the rest. This was really important to me as I needed to learn REAL skills that I could use from the get go.

I got this and so much more. With regular guest speakers and access to experts you were spoilt with what you had available during the 12 Week Programme, Thank you Gemma for this fabulous programme.

I am now armed with the knowledge and confidence to add Social Media Coaching as a service for my growing business and am incredibly excited for all the plans ahead. I would not have been able to do this without the Programme and everything it has provided me.”

Carine Leney – Casa Marketing

“I really enjoyed the Social Media Manager Programme. This course helped me change career paths and gave me the skills and confidence to start my own business.

Gemma is great and was very supportive throughout the course. I was able to learn alongside other incredible women who I have also learnt a lot from. We all supported each other throughout the course and even beyond. It has been an amazing experience and opportunity to meet a lot of wonderful people.”

Wing Hang – Social Wings

“I’ve often thought about adding social media management to my offering of marketing services. This programme talked me through all the elements of social media marketing and provided me with the tools and documents required from set up to launch.

The course was in bite-sized achievable chunks throughout the week and I loved the practical set up element that Gemma went through week by week.

The live learning sessions were a bonus and gave me the opportunity to connect with experts in the field.

After completing the 12-week course I feel equipped and ready to offer the service and I have a team of friends I can bounce ideas off as well.”

Fatema Haji – Soaked In Social

“I have done a variety of social media courses from very expensive to very affordable, but this was by far my favourite.

It started at the beginning with branding, goals and business strategy and then allowed me to work on my business week on week, encouraging me to put my new skills into action whilst actually building my audience on my social platforms.

As a result I managed to get my first paying client before I graduated. This course gave me the skills and confidence to write my proposal and onboard my client.

This is literally a one stop shop course to start your business, develop your skills and confidence and start working with clients. Thank you Gemma!”

Meet your Mentor

This programme will be taught and mentored by the founder of Social Mums, Gemma Lloyd.

Gemma has over 15 years experience in marketing, working as an account manager in the UK’s third largest regional creative agency with clients such as Sky Bet and The Law Society.

In 2015 Gemma retrained by doing the Digital Mums social media management course in a bid to find a more flexible career to fit around her two young children. She hasn’t looked back and has since worked with a large number of parent focused businesses, some managing their social media long term and others on shorter term campaigns to launch new products or services.

She has also been running popular social media workshops in Tunbridge Wells, Kent since 2017 as well as 1:1 training sessions, equipping small business owners with the skills needed to take their social media to the next level.

Meet your Business Coach

These sessions will cover;

  • How to do business on YOUR terms and based on your own personal definition of success.
  • Facing imposter syndrome head on and building your self belief.
  • Your money mindset and how to get it working for you not against you.
  • Overcoming overwhelm so that you can make the most of your time and be as productive as possible.
  • How to sell in a way that is authentic to you
  • And anything else that comes up for you as you journey through the programme. These live coaching sessions are about YOU so will be adapted to address the things that you need.

After a successful career in branding and advertising, Emma felt the pull towards helping others follow their dreams and achieve their goals. She challenged herself to step out of the rat race to follow her goals, establishing her business Action Woman as an accredited coach and licenced NLP practitioner.

She prides herself on getting people out of their own way using a combination of mindset magic and practical tools. She can see the potential in everyone and is highly skilled at helping them fulfil it! She is regularly featured in the press thanks to her warm and effective style and her mantra is “nothing changes if nothing changes”.

Do I have to be a mum to take part in the Programme?

No, most definitely not. Most of the social media experts who teach the Programme are mums, so we’re completely aware of the juggling involved in being a mum and running a business but this doesn’t mean you have to be a mum to join.

Do I need a background in Marketing to get the most out of the Programme?

No you don’t. Participants in our beta test came from all backgrounds and while some may have had experience in Marketing it certainly isn’t necessary to go on and have a successful career as a Social Media Manager after completing the Programme. We will teach you exactly how to strategically manage social media for clients and how to market yourself as a Social Media Professional.

How long will I get access to the Programme materials for?

You will get lifetime access to our Social Media Managers Essentials Pack which contains all of the tools and templates you need to run your business as a freelance Social Media Manager. You will also get 12 Months access to our fully updated course materials with over 100 step-by-step training videos that teach you how to use the social media platforms effectively for clients, how to build a successful social media business and how to find the clients of your dreams.
