About the book:

If you’re a business owner that gives a damn, this social media book is for you.

Inside you’ll find a wealth of experience and knowledge which we’ve gathered from more than ten years delivering social media training workshops to more than 10,000 businesses across the UK. Packed with advice, tips, best practice, business case studies, strategic insights and lots more, this book will help you and your organisation get real results from Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and many other platforms.  We even included a few behind the scenes stories from over the years (some of which we promised never to tell!).


Embrace the Space

Social Media insight for businesses that give a damn!

Specifically, it’s been written (as have the workshops over the years) for small and medium business owners who actually give a damn. People who care about how that business performs. People who care about the relationship they have with customers.

It’s a business book which encourages the use of social media and digital technology to achieve business benefit, but which advocates that the way you do it, is to be more human than ever before.  Written during summer 2020 this is a fresh, inspirational look at what it takes to succeed with social media in a post lockdown world.
