Optimising your Social Media

Most people start out on LinkedIn with a “I have to be on this” attitude and don’t see it as the incredibly powerful and useful social media tool that it is.

In fact, a fully optimised profile can do wonders for your your professional image, create lasting relationships with connections you wouldn’t otherwise be able to stay in touch with and open doors to opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be available.

I’ve parted ways with Yatter


(A personal blogpost from Clare Marshall)

So as some of you already know, for a while over the latter part of 2017 and the beginning of this year I was working with Yatter, a new collaborative social media scheduler that has been developed in Glasgow.

Some of you may also have received the announcement email from when my profile updated on LinkedIn and for those of you who have sent their congratulations on my new post, I am humbled and thank you all.

Unfortunately, shortly after the announcement of my involvement became public, it became clear that despite being brought on to bring a fresh approach to their marketing, the team were uncomfortable with me working differently to the way they were used to, the relationships became sour and I decided I had to leave.

This wasn’t a decision I took lightly, the product is superb and those who know me know that I love seeing new businesses thrive! That’s why I love doing what I do.

I think it’s important to recognise that toxic environments don’t work for anyone, and at a time where the team needs to be pulling together, our differences were only causing division.

Yes, it’s disappointing to leave after so short a time, but no, I don’t regret parting when I did. It wasn’t going to work and it’s better to recognise that early on and save the big complicated mess at the end.

Yatter is a superb system and I wish those still involved all the very best for the future (if you would benefit from using a scheduler then check it out, I highly recommend it)

Toodle Pipski!

First Dundee Connections is a HUGE Success!

I am absolutely delighted to report that The first of our monthly Dundee Connections networking meetings was a rip roaring success! With over 40 businesses represented in the room there was a fantastic mixture of existing and new connections and I’m sure everyone who attended started on the path of building business relationships that will last!

Weavers Mill are our venue and I’m sure everyone would like to thank Linda for all her hard work as I’m sure a crowd of 40 plus teas, coffees and brekkie rolls were an unexpected addition to her Thursday morning! We’ll have to give her more warning next time!

Dundee Connections will be a monthly event held on the second Thursday of every month, (so pencil the dates in the diary so you don’t miss out) Our next one is booked for 8th February and tickets are available on eventbrite now.

The reason we ask you to register is in part so that we can get a good idea of numbers and also so that we can prepare a delegate list prior to the event so that all attendees can look out for contacts that they need to meet and use the time we have effectively! You are welcome to come along without registering but we cant promote you if we don’t know you’re going to be there!

Hope to see you all at the next one!
