Amanda Dixon is an Award Winning Social Media Consultant and has been working with North East businesses for over 10 years,  She has trained over 4000 businesses in the use of Social Media for business, through 121 training sessions, hands-on workshops, bespoke in-house training and seminars.

For 6 years Amanda ran a Social Media Management Agency and in 2016 changed direction and launched North East Social Media Ltd to concentrate on the education side of Social Media. Teaching North East Businesses how to use Social Media with the maximum effect

North East Social Media Ltd believe that Social Media is far more effective when created and managed in-house, that way the posts are more current, images more creative, more fun and spontaneous. However, if a client really does not have the time or the inclination to manage their own accounts, North East Social Media will do this for them – we do offer a full Social Media Management Service here in the North East of England.

With training, we believe that North East businesses will really understand how amazing these Social Media platforms can be and will be able to improve their marketing, raise their profiles and interact with their target audience. With excellent training you will feel confident in your Social Media marketing and will greatly reap the benefits.

We can work with individuals, companies, teams – we can teach everything from basic set up of accounts all the way through to advanced advertising, teach you how to create engaging content, teach you what to post, how to post and when to post. 

Have a look at our Workshops they are a great place to start or alternatively call Amanda on 07929 626512 and she’ll be happy to talk to you and guide you in the right direction.
