Meet the Pros

We’re a group of professionally trained social media experts that come from all over the UK.

We’re all graduates of the Digital Mums Social Media Management course and we’re fully trained to help small businesses make the most out of their social media marketing.

We also happen to be mums too, so we fully understand how to juggle work and kids but that doesn’t mean you have to be a mum to benefit from our training and support.

How it all began

Social Mums was founded back in 2017 by Gemma Lloyd. Gemma had already been working as a Social Media Manager for a couple of years after graduating from the Digital Mums Social Media Manager programme in 2015. She was finding that many of the small businesses she wanted to support couldn’t afford to pay for her services to manage their social media long term, so she set up some social media workshops locally in West Kent.

The workshops were a huge success and the feedback from everyone taking part was amazing. She knew that small business owners all over the UK would benefit from this level of training and support, so the Social Mums’ team grew.
