You know your business should be on social media but the thought of putting yourself out there is scary and overwhelming.
You also know that video is the key to getting in front of more customers, but you’ve never really understood the power of your smartphone for making videos.
Lastly, you know that building a better relationship with your audience through social media will translate into sales in the future.
BUT you don’t have time to attend a workshop, and you don’t have the money to invest in a social media manager or videographer.
If this sounds like you, then Get Social with Video is for you! Our course will take you on a journey, step by step, from the comfort of your office or home. With simple to follow video lessons and downloadable PDFs to work through in your own time. You’ll get the very best support and jargon free advice from people who understand what it’s like to run a business. Let’s face it, if you HAVE to be on social media, why not learn from the best and save yourself a lot of TIME, MONEY and HEARTACHE in the process?
Who are the course instructors?
Get Social with Video came about as a result of Caroline and Helen having a chat during lockdown. We both wanted to learn from the other, but Covid meant we weren’t able to meet face to face. We knew how complementary our services are and hit on the idea of combining our expertise to help other small businesses.
Caroline is a seasoned Social Media Specialist who first discovered the power of social media and its ability to build communities when she ran her own wedding floristry business. After a particularly unfruitful leaflet drop she decided to investigate this new thing called Instagram which had just launched. The transformation on her business was overnight and immense. Suddenly she could network and build relationships with other businesses within the wedding industry, photographers, cake makers, venues, makeup artists, you name it she connected with them and they all referred business to each other.
As a result of this turnaround friends asked her to help them launch their businesses on social media. She quickly realised that social media was here to stay but very few people understood how to use it or the power it had to connect and build communities and increase sales, which was why Social Honeycomb was born.
Meanwhile Helen could be found somewhere behind a camera! Helen first learnt to shoot at the BBC and ITV - chasing down criminals on Crimewatch and X-Ray and running after cows in field for Coast & Country. Originally a journalist, Helen has been brought up on the power of storytelling and the connection this can make with your audience.
In 2016, Helen decided to go it alone and, without the budget to buy broadcast-quality cameras, she invested in a tripod, mic and gimbal for her iPhone. She began offering free corporate videos for local companies and quickly had enough money to invest in a ‘big camera’. However to this day, Helen continues to use her smartphone to film for clients’ websites and social media. She swears by its flexibility, ease of use and excellent results. The best camera you can have is the one that’s always on you. (Just remember to wipe the lens!)

How long will it take me to complete the course?
To actually just binge watch the videos in each lesson won't take you long! However we would never recommend you do this! It would be our advice to watch one lesson a week or every few days. Taking up to ten weeks to fully engage with the course. Each time you watch a lesson, go away and put into practise what you have learnt, or think about how it relates to your business. Start to build your social media strategy, your content plan and start filming with your phone. Join our Facebook group and engage with others on the course. Learn from them and offer your thoughts and creativity to them. It's the best way to complete the course effectively and with maximum success.
How long will I have access to the course?
You will have a minimum of 12 months access to the course, including all the videos. After this, we cannot guarantee you access. You can download all of the PDFs and keep these forever.
What happens if I have a question or don’t understand something?
The best thing to do is to join the Facebook group. Post your question and either Caroline or Helen will get back to you within 24 hours. If you feel we haven’t answered your question sufficiently, then please drop us an email to [email protected].
What happens if I am not enjoying your course or am unhappy with its contents?
As long as you haven’t completed more than three lessons, and have written to us at [email protected] using the email address you signed up with, then we will be happy to refund your course fee in full within 12 months of you paying.
Can you guarantee that I will see results?
Yes, if you action all of the steps we suggest and put in renewed vigour and excitement for your social media, you will see an increase in both the reach of your posts and the engagement they receive.
Is it necessary for me to buy apps, software or equipment for my smartphone?
No, not at all. We do recommend apps and equipment for your smartphone but we also give you tips and tricks which are free.
How long can I be a member of the Facebook group for?
As long as the Facebook group exists, you will remain a member. By investing in Get Social with Video we give you lifetime access to the group. If you wish to leave the group at any time, you are very welcome to.
