Simon Hamer, Digital Manager

Simon is a professed career morph having worked in a variety of roles.

Simon is a Social Media Strategist with a focus on Social Media Management and Personal branding expert. Here is Simon’s perspective on social media:

“When you start off in social media it can be a lonely place. You feel as if no one wants to know you. Or was it just me ?

There’s a lot of shouting very loudly on social media and a lot of “white noise” created, but you do not need to shout to be heard on social media. I’ll show how you still can be heard quietly through social media.

A very wise man once said to me “You will only properly be heard by another business person if they already know, like and trust you” …so I adapted, I found many new ways to help other people.

Once they know you, you can work on getting them to like you. After the “know and like” are done the trust bit comes along a lot more easily.

For anyone doubting this principle, that is why I am here now.

The tips, tricks and what I consider my strangest discovery, I’ll save for the radio show.”
