Q Social Media
About Q Social Media Ltd
Specialises in helping businesses to make social media and digital marketing work for their business. As we use these mediums ourselves to promote our own business we know the pitfalls many businesses find in keeping up to date and fully utilising these marketing activities effectively. This gives us a good understanding of where businesses are coming from and the frustations they have. Due to our key speciaIism in social media we're able to ensure it's fully synced with digital marketing activities - in particularly search engine optimisation (SEO) and email marketing, as well as benefiting offline marketing activities like networking and events. From running many digital advertising campaigns for ourselves and clients across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google advertising we have good insight knowledge as to how best utilise these advertising platforms. We have a diverse range of our clients across the B2B, B2C and non-profit making sectors that has allowed us to see what works well and not so well in each sector. Run by Chris Wood along with his team of social media and digital marketing specialists.
More on Chris Wood
Hi - I'm Chris a social media and digital marketing specialist and director of Q Social Media. I run the onsite training sessions and courses that we run across the South West - Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall. I also freelance for training centres, where for one of them we also run courses in London. As well as this, I oversee the management of clients that have outsourced their social media and/or digital marketing activities to us to ensure they're being properly managed and that we're helping to meet the client's business objectives. Whether that be increasing website traffic, brand awareness, leads/enquiries and/or online sales.
I previously have over a decade of IT and technology experience from working in the City of London. It was here that I was first introduced to LinkedIn, which I used at that time as a way of keeping in touch with colleagues. I was also introduced to instant messaging platforms that were used for internal communication purposes only, where I would have instant online chat conversations with colleagues that were not in the same location (think of Twitter but for internal use only). Since then I have spent over five years focusing on how technology can be used to market businesses online as it has become a keen interest of mine.
I have worked with organisations of many different sizes, helping them to engage their customer base online. I've assisted organisations with whatever stage they are at with digital marketing, from kick-starting new users to helping more experienced organisations develop their strategy. I have helped them apply a variety of inbound marketing techniques, using tools such as social media, search engine optimisation, blogging, email marketing and Google marketing apps.
I regularly speak about social media and digital marketing and have spoken at events held by the British Computer Society SW, ACCA SW, Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors SW, International Craft and Hobby Fair Trade Show at the NEC in Birmingham, Business Network SW, Federation of Small Businesses Exeter & Yeovil groups and various other business networking events. I particularly enjoy answering questions and helping those attending further understand how they could best utilise these mediums for their business.
