With over 20 years of professional experience in various businesses, organisations, and industries, I know what it takes to look professional, be more approachable and build genuine relationships for business.
My journey started with customer-focused roles through to marketing, working within the corporate, FMCG, training and non-profit sectors. This ranged from The Irish Stock Exchange, The Walt Disney Company, Lyreco and St. John of Gods Services. After a career break to focus on my three little angels, who headed then off to school, I up-skilled and moved into working in website design and social media management.
My journey has made me appreciate both sides of the coin
as a business owner and as a consumer – Eimer Duffy
Let’s get Social Show with your hosts Eimer Duffy and Phillip Twyford
With the qualifications, knowledge and experience I had acquired, I decided to set up FIT Social Media Training in 2018 with a focus on helping others with their own online presence as a social media consultant and a QQI-qualified trainer to give a more personal customer experience.
I started and was honoured to work with a wide range of businesses and organisations and was delighted to see the results they began to achieve and build on. Then I began to work more and more with businesses and organisations which required a more empathic approach, as they needed an emotional and compassionate tone of voice for their online presence due to the nature of their offerings. This inspires me everyday and motivates me to ensure I provide the best services I can for them.
Apart from social media consultancy and social media training services I provide, I have also focus on creating free resources to help provide more support. One in particular, is the weekly social media for business radio show “Let’s Get Social” which I co-host with Phillip Twyford, aka The Curly Marketer on Dublin South FM every Friday at 2pm! Where we have the most amazing expert guests, different industries covered, the best social media tips and the worst social media jokes! (I’m not kidding!)
I know how daunting social media can be especially when you are trying to run a business. I totally understand as a business owner myself and the ever changing world of social media with updates and more. I am a big believer in keeping things simple and getting the foundations right, so you can keep a consistent online presence without spending every minute online.
As a social media consultant and trainer I can help you understand, manage and leverage your business via the right channels. I will ensure you look more professional, attract and engage your audience and build trust online the right way. And if you feel you need someone to manage your online presence, I will help you with my “Done For You” options so that you can have peace of mind that your business will look professional, have consistent and active channels which will engage your audience and potential customers locally and globally.
Even thought I focus mainly on social media, I am a bit of a detail gal and I do look at a business’ other digital assets such as Google My Business listing and their website. Google My Business is essential and harnessing that is key. It is usually one of the first things people will look at and expect it to be up to date with all business details as well as images, updates and of course good reviews. The next thing they will look for is a great website. This needs to be fully SEO’d, completed and enhanced with content. So once you have your Google listing, website and social channels looking their very best and engaging your customers and potential customers, you are on the right road to being seen as professional, credible and trustworthy as a business.
I see websites and social media like a partnership, which works perfectly together despite their various differences. The website is one partner which is all picture and no sound, and the social media is the other which never stops talking…
How Can I Help?
Through Social Media Consultancy I will help guide you with practical actions that actually work without any complicated strategies.
I create short and easy to follow interactive Social Media Training programmes to empower you to use social media to your best advantage.
And if you have a specific online challenge you want to troubleshoot then a Power Hour is exactly what you need (a combination of consultancy and training rolled into one).
And that’s not all, the follow up sessions are where we discuss your progress and look to see how to build and increase the effectiveness of your online presence.
When it comes to having your online presence managed I can be there for you with “Done For You” options. You select which works best for you and know that your online presence is in good hands, leaving you to focus on your business.
Let’s have a chat today via an exploration call and talk through what you would like to do, discuss what you only need and where you want to be with your online presence. We will explore all aspects of your online presence and see which of my services will work best for you. Do come find me on social media, as always happy to connect and chat.
