Ready to take your social media to the next level? This one-day workshop is perfect for jewellers and silversmiths who are looking to drive sales from Instagram and Facebook and are willing to invest in tactics such as paid advertising and working with influencers.

We all know that Instagram is a great way to attract and engage with consumers, but with most jewellery brands now having a social media presence, and with over 25 million active Instagram business accounts competing to get themselves noticed, how do you make your brand stand out from the crowd? Many people have success using influencers – who are influential instagram users promoting others’ brands and products –Influencers to engage new audiences, but how do you engage influencers in the first place?

Social media consultant and trainer Alison Battisby will show you how to create campaigns designed to generate sales, use Instagram Stories to attract premium customers, and create an influencer outreach programme designed to spread awareness.

“The standard of teaching and information was brilliant. Alison was very very helpful!”
