Meet our Social Media guru Janet Wakstein + seek out our useful services. You might be surprised at how diverse we are!
Janet from the powerfully named motherhood of brotherhood joined the Guild through our crowdfunder last year and we’re extremely glad she did! Since she has taken over our Twitter and Instagram accounts we’ve seen a surge in engagement and new interest in membership. Janet comes highly recommended and especially for Small Business Saturday she is offering a whopping 20% off for December!
My first step after leaving my permanent job, was to start by doing similar marketing and sales work to what I had been doing, just on a freelance basis. I had a good network within creative businesses and my role was to be the part-time sales and marketing lead / head / support / director /
What are you doing for Small Business Saturday?
I’m offering 20% off my monthly charges for 3 months for businesses who sign up in December. This would involve a first meeting to understand what you’re looking to achieve and then a plan would kick-off in January.
I have a targeted approach to social media. I work with successful small and medium-size businesses to share their passion with the world and increase awareness with the people who matter to them. I know as a small business, it’s important to side-step wasted time and money.
How would you like our members to work together over the next year?
Why is it important that other businesses join the Guild?
Running a small business has lots of challenges and these challenges are shared by many – if not all – the members. It’s a great network of people and having more members will only make us stronger and more diverse.
