Explore Indie Cambridge - Socially Savvy Cambridge
Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg, Sean Parker, et al, social media has become woven into the very fabric of our everyday lives. Sites likes Facebook and Instagram are addictive viewing for a guilt-free snoop at the lives of our friends, but they’re also wonderful tools to enable businesses to reach a large audience at the click of a button. Yet some companies still view the sites with trepidation, unsure how best to engage, which is where social media specialist Kathryn Bailey, of Socially Savvy Cambridge, comes in.
Youthful, creative and dynamic, Kathryn has grown up with the internet, so understands how, when used correctly, social media can be an instant, cost-effective way to raise profile and attract new clients.
Imbued with an entrepreneurial spirit from a young age, when she’d make perfume and sell it to friends, Kathryn always dreamt of owning her own business. She studied creative arts, photography and videography, then honed her graphic design skills at a marketing agency, making her the go-to-girl because of her mastery of all things digital. Since setting up her business she’s secured various clients, including a natural chewing gum company, a local nursery and a mental health charity, alongside her 1:1 coaching clients.
As well as her social media monthly management service and 90-minute focus sessions, Kathryn now runs a 6-week coaching programme. The programme sessions are done either in person or conveniently via video call and are the perfect solution for people who want to manage their own social media accounts. Other creative services Kathryn covers include photography, short promotional films or animations, logo rebranding and corporate presentations.
So, if you want to make sure you are being savvy and getting the most from the wonderful world of social media – your first port of call should be Kathryn.
