About Me

Hello!

“What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing: you wouldn’t be an artist if you didn’t want to share an experience, a thought.” So true David, wise words from the man himself Mr Hockney! And that’s want I want you to learn and become confident in doing on Social Media. Sharing your creative work, growing an engaged following and making sales.

But let’s be honest sharing can be hard, especially on Social Media and especially if you are unsure what works to connect with your audience, promote your work and make sales. But when you do, it can be a wonderful place to be and can really help you achieve your goals, build your overall confidence, take the weight off your shoulders and allow you to enjoy marketing your business.

I love the creative world, I was born into it, immersed in design and art from day one, with both parents artists in different fields. I also love Instagram and have built a strong business around coaching Creative Businesses about the art of using this fantastic social media platform. Instagram, when used well has the power to help you make new connections, grow a strong community of engaged followers, promote your business, grow your business and make sales.

And all you may need is a guiding hand from someone who knows what works, who uses it every day and can give you the strategies to make it work for your business and enable you to know how to use each part of this platform with ease and enjoyment and importantly do it your way.

 

How I Got Here

Since launching SociallySophieB in March 2019, I have worked with small businesses in the creative and coaching world with high levels of success and fantastic feedback. Working with creative business owners who are just starting out on Social Media and with business owners who are a bit further in their social media journey and who want to advance their knowledge.

You see I’ve been there, I’ve gone from technophobe, to technophile. I’ve experienced the power of Social Media first hand! It helped me change my career, build a business and get my life back!

In 2018, after ill health I decided to change careers, from Social Work Team Manager to Social Media Marketing Coach and Trainer! At the heart of both are people, human behaviour and human psychology! The qualifications, knowledge and skills, gained over 20 years in this profession enabled me retrain in the world of Social Media Marketing and Digital Marketing Training with the Award Winning TechPixies.

I excelled and in early 2019 became TechPixies Face To Face Social Media Facilitator. I am now their Online Instagram Coach and Curriculum Lead. Using my expertise for this fantastic social enterprise ensures my Social Media knowledge is always up to date. Which is key for them but key for you.

My knowledge and experience of coaching people for several decades means I am able to support you to learn and develop your knowledge of Instagram Marketing more effectively, whilst understanding how to work with and really connect with your audience. I will help you feel in charge and confident to use Instagram to Market your business.

Community Matters

I have a strong belief in building and being a part of strong, diverse Communities, which led me to create Small Business Lives. Designed to help small creative businesses showcase their brand, connect with other creatives, become confident in telling their story, be visible and use Lives on Social Media. It’s been a huge success for the small businesses who have been involved and I am extremely proud and honoured to have supported them on their Social Media journey.

A Little Bit About Me

The creative world is one I love, with a passion for photography, design, painting, jewellery, music and crafts. I love the colour pink, a colour of hope, passion, joy and loyalty and see numbers and emotions in colour. You’ll often find me taking photos in London with my dog Amber The Cav Repawter therapy dog extraordinaire, fun loving, tail wagging fur ball. Or meandering through galleries and exhibitions big and small. And of course, you’ll find me on Instagram rather a lot, building communities and being a part of communities that are doing good, promoting creatives and #socialforgood. And last but no means least I am all about encouraging people to look after their mental wellbeing and that means taking time away and off Social Media, which is why I love helping creative business owners know how to market their creative business, make it simple and give them the time they need to spend on other areas of their creative business and life.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

The workshop was packed full of great content and information and with the follow up Q and A session a week later gave me the time to take on board and implement the content to suit my business before double checking and revisiting some content that may have escaped me! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any course or workshop that Sophie runs and will definitely be attending more of them.

I couldn’t recommend Sophie enough. I expected a few pointers and a bunch of info I already knew. Instead I learnt an awful lot of valuable skills. We talked through my target audience, tone of copy and visuals (like colours and branding). Putting everything together really gave me a clear picture moving forward. All in all, I have been incredibly impressed by what I have learned from Sophie. She really knows what she is doing and she is really very good at it.

I booked Sophie to work on a mini Instagram audit for me and received such an in-depth report. The level of detail that she went into was quite amazing and it has helped me to make some quick tweaks and has also provided with me some longer term thoughts on my social media. Wanting to know more, I booked a One to One Power Hour coaching session to discuss my Instagram marketing. I loved the session but of course an hour was not going to be enough. So I will be coming back in the New Year for a few more Power Hour sessions.

Sophie's enthusiasm is so infectious that you can't help but catch some of it and I began to understand what a lovely thing social media can be. Sophie has helped me to remember why I do what I do and why I love it. And I can't thank her enough for that. Thank you Sophie!

I would really recommend Sophie to any other small business owners who feel equally overwhelmed by social media, are unsure how to reach their particular audience or need support in putting together a strategy they can take forward to reach their business goals.

Working with Sophie was absolutely amazing for my business. She got me to do a 360 on my approach and really focus on what is important to my audience. The wealth of information I got was absolutely transformational. I highly recommend Sophie as I feel you get more than you expect. I felt as if I was with my big sister, she checked on me, from the first session I was fired up and ready to go!
