Be confident!

We want our learners to be confident in their use of Social Media.  Once you truly understand Social Media and how each of the platforms work, you will know exactly how to use the platforms confidently. Furthermore we can work with you on content. Teaching you how, when and what to post on your Social Media platforms.

I should be able to type this recommendation really quickly. After all, I say these words verbally almost every day and have done for years! As a marketing coach and business support adviser, I need to know about social media, and have a particular interest in how a business wishes to be perceived online as part of their full marketing strategy. Anything beyond that I refer to Amanda! We have the same ethos and she is the only person I know who knows the latest rumour/buzz/timewaster in social media, as it happens. She has her finger on the pulse constantly which means she is the ideal person to deliver Social Media Training. Hundreds of my clients and close contacts have appreciated Amanda’s broad knowledge and her charming training style, not to mention her quick (and dry!) sense of humour which makes people feel good about being sociable online. An absolute gem and a must if you’re looking for truly ‘social’ media training

I recently had the pleasure of attending session on social media with Amanda and I have to say it was both rewarding and engaging. Whilst Amanda had been given a brief to follow, she more than picked up spontaneous questions and certainly tailored the session to the level of learners she had in the room. I can confidently say that Amanda would add value to any business who wants to up the interaction with their audience via their social media platforms

Amanda has delivered two in house training sessions on utilizing social media in our role as lawyers to myself and colleagues at Jacksons Law Firm. Amanda’s style of delivery was warm, witty and personable and she is extremely knowledgeable on her subject area. Following the training I feel much more adept and confident in using social media to promote my legal and other working activities to my professional contacts. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda

We needed some help to refresh and update our social media skills and Amanda had been recommended to us. She didn’t disappoint! Amanda tailored a session to us and showed us lots of things we didn’t already know. She showed us how to develop a social media strategy and guided us on content. We have already seen improved engagement as a result

Being a business owner and a social media sceptic is not a good combination. However I admit to being converted by the very knowledgeable and approachable Amanda Dixon. She has a very accessible approach and I have learned from her in both group and 1 to 1 sessions. I feel I have not only increased my own skills but my business is benefiting too, so I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who seeks the same.

I have been using Social media since it was born and thought I was pretty clued up. I learned so much from Amanda in 2 sessions it was unbelievable. I have already increased my interactions, engagements and have a bigger audience with less effort I may add!. I've already got some new clients I put down solely to I Am You and there experience. Even if you think you know all about social media and using it to your businesses advantage I guarantee Amanda can teach you how to be so much more efficient and get the most out of it. My bad habits are broken and her knowledge made a few things click into place. I live on the internet and would recommend I am you to every one of my clients.
