1:1 Coaching, The Pretty Box London

Anila Ahmed founded luxury gift box company The Pretty Box in 2016 and came to me looking for some direction. The areas she wanted to focus on were as follows:

How to create a proven social media strategy?
How to build a following?
How to build a blog to support the business?

When a client comes to me with clear goals, it makes it a lot easier to tailor the session. We looked at primarily at Instagram. The session included tips on how to grow brand awareness and content inspiration (Including Instagram & Blog ideas). Another area we covered extensively is how to use Instagram Stories for brands. We also spent a little time looking at the website content and best practice.

Anilas’ feedback is below:

‘I found the 1to1 session really helpful, it gave me much needed clarity, motivation and a plan of action going forward.  There is so much to do when running your own business, Renu really helped me to prioritise what to focus on.  Thanks so much will definitely be recommending your sessions to others.’

3 ways to gain following on Instagram

Instagram is THE channel at the moment, it was recently reported it had 300 million monthly active users. To put that figure into context, this was compared to Facebook’s 228 million and Twitter’s 9 million. So basically what I am trying to say is,  it’s the channel you need to be on. Many people I work with come to me with the burning question ‘How do I grow following’ and I spend a lot of time working with them to build a strategy and develop original content ideas.

If this is a question that has been on your lips for a while, there are a few things you can do to help grow the channel which I would like to share with you:

  1. Post Consistently – The best results come from those who post often. Personally, if you can create a strategy that includes unique content, you’ll also be able to stand out of the crowd.
  2. Use quality hashtags – I did a post about hashtags a little while back. It is definitely worth spending some time researching the best hashtags to use. Need to know how and where to use them? Check out my recent article here.
  3. Engage – Engaging with your audience is so important. Engagement is one of the top determinators of whether a post will be showed or not. However, don’t worry, you don’t need to spend hours messaging every follower, simply engage your followers by liking or replying to their comments to your posts.

1:1 Coaching: Coffee Ethic, Leicester

Tasneem from ethical coffee house Coffee Ethic approached me because she was looking for content inspiration, although she had a good knowledge of Facebook, she wanted more guidance on how to target the relevant audience and raise the business’s profile on both Facebook and Instagram, a channel that she was still very much getting the grips of. Her main reason for having this session was to promote the vegan teas she hosts on a monthly basis.

My role was very much to show her how she could be projecting her brand better. We looked at targeted advertising, content inspiration and strategy. We spoke about how to use instagram stories to grow the business and how she could use Facebook Groups to increase awareness. We also discussed creative ways she could grow the brand offline. Finally, I  gave her a tutorial on how to use IGTV, Instagrams take on You Tube. Growing a brand takes dedication but I understand how time consuming it can also be and isn’t always a priority, so I also showed her a content plan template which she could use to help organise her posts and save time. You can see Tasneem’s testimonial here.

1:1 Coaching, Baby Clothes Direct

Baby Clothes Direct approached me for some expert advice on their brand. The business who specialise in garment manufacturing have existed since 1994 but have only recently started growing their business with the UK. This company is a new venture, so they were keen to get some insights before focussing on growing their Social Media Channels.

The session took place with two members of the Baby Clothes Direct Team. They wanted advice on the below:

  • What content should be posted for a businesses like ours?
  • What do people respond to most – discounts, new products etc?
  • How to broaden our reach?
  • To understand who to follow and what statistics we should be focusing on.

During the 2 hours, we focussed on a variety of areas including website content, discussing ways this could be improved to help SEO. We also looked at ways to grow Instagram following, USPs and content ideas & inspiration. We also looked at ways to grow the business using various offline channels.

Sessions always end up offering much more information then clients expect and I understand how overwhelming it can be, so my email follow ups include a clear action plan that help give direction and priorities.

1:1 Coaching, Spicy Masterclass, Leicester

Bhavna, brainchild of the newest Indian cooking masterclass known as Spicy Masterclass approached me to get some advice about how to market her new business. Spicy Masterclass is an intensive cookery class specialising in authentic Gujarati cooking run by Bhavna who has 30 years experience in the kitchen, passionate about teaching others her skills, she will be launching her business in September.

Her goals for the session were to get some advice on finding the right audience as well as some inspiration for Instagram and Facebook content. We went through various ways of discovering target audiences as well as best practice and lots of content examples, something she said she needed specific help on. We picked out USPs that were used to create a new Instagram profile description and we discussed the importance of videos and lives for business growth and awareness. By the time I left she felt more confident about her marketing plan and by the evening had already started to implement what she had learnt.

As it was an intense session with lots of information, to make it more manageable, I sent over an action plan which allowed Bhavna to stay focussed giving her clear marketing goals. I suggested a second session in the future so we could explore channels more, as I believe as start up, it is likely that things might change. Another great session followed by a lovely testimonial which you can read here.
