Social Media Training for Tradesmen

Are you a tradesman / tradeswoman running a business and struggling to market your business whilst running your business?

Did you used to get a lot of work from the local newspaper, but in the past 10-15 years have seen this drop and drop?

Do you not bother with Thompson Local or Yellow Pages as they’re just getting smaller and smaller?

Do you use Facebook / Twitter personally – but don’t know how to use it for business?

Do you see friends in the trade win business all the time on Social Media and would like some success yourself?

“Since meeting with Alex (Altrincham HQ) we/I thought we knew everything there was to know about social media, how wrong I was. We’d decided to give Alex a call as it was clear to see from twitter/Facebook that he knew what he was talking about & was passionate about what he does & the fact that everyone in Altrincham knows him was another added bonus.

I don’t think it matters what line of business you are in social media needs to be a part of your marketing strategy. Double glazing is something you may only need once every 30 years but in doing social media where others are not puts us into the position when someone is ready.

Give Alex a call & do what he says (as long as it doesn’t involve dressing up as an emperor) & he will give you sales.” Wayne Shaw, The Window Company

“Worked with Alex to ensure we were getting the most out of our Social Media, he explained everything clearly, gave us the honest feedback we needed to ensure that out campaigns worked and targeted the correct audience.

Once all trained up we have had some real results because of Alex and his support! Highly recommended!” Nick Gilbert, Prestige Floor Company

“I needed some help setting up a business account for Twitter and a brief instruction on how to start using social media to increase my online presence. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and outlined what I needed to do in precise and easily understandable terms. I have recommended Alex and would do so again” Neil Priest, Lymm Shutters and Blinds

“Alex provided us with a 1-2-1 social media course that saw results and tree surgery work to look at before the session was completed. I use the skills he taught me every day and he after service was really useful” Alan Bethell, Tree Surgeon
