Launching The Podcast

love hate social media podcast artwork

So I went ahead and launched the Podcast!

a real one! and you can listen to it HERE

We are asked about social media each and every day, from clients wondering how to get the best ROI to friends trying to figure out how to add an event to facebook (yeah, I get the whole kaboodle of questions)

So whereas I use the technical “how to” questions as inspiration on what short instructional video I should make next, (a list that is currently the length of my arm!) I have, until now, neglected the “what do you think about….” questions.

and its time that got sorted.

After all, if one person is asking these questions, I’m sure lots are thinking them!

Mostly it will be me and my opinions on the matters but if your opinion is different, why not come on as a guest and give us your take!

You will be able to find the podcast on Anchor.fm/lovehatesocialmedia and also on itunes, google plus, spotify and all the other platforms where podcasts hang out.

Also, if you have a question, send it over! No time like the present!!

 

 

 

 

 

Optimising Your LinkedIn Profile

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.

So its pretty dang important you are presented in a good light!

Our first announced workshops are below with evening and daytime workshops available to book on eventbrite.

(THESE WORKSHOPS ARE INTERACTIVE AND WE WILL BE ALTERING PROFILES AND LEARNING STRATEGY AS WE GO, PLEASE BE PREPARED TO BRING ALONG YOUR DEVICES AND INTERACT WITH THE OTHER ATTENDEES)

The answers are simply but its important to have a clear strategy in place to make sure that your social media efforts are working for you and not just taking up valuable time.

To address the social media issues everyone has we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting workshops on a variety of subjects that can make running your own social media campaigns much more manageable and effective.

Expat US Tax Services

Offering a niche service like specific federal and state tax returns for US expats, it can be difficult to know which strategy to take. We have been working with ExpatUSTaxServices to help build a clean and easy to navigate website.

Owned and managed by EDA Professional Services, this is now a stand alone and streamlined service which deals specifically with US expats living abroad and delves into the in-depth US tax law knowledge of the EDA staff.

If you have any inquiries, please direct them to admin@expatustaxservices.com or follow their accounts on Instagram and Twitter

Download the list: Dundee Connections February

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!
