Work With Us
I am a qualified Social Media Marketer and I have a real passion for working with and championing local businesses. I live in Harrogate and think Yorkshire is a fabulous place to live or visit with kids. A Place To Meet has given me the opportunity to shout about what our area has to offer and build strong relationships with many local businesses.
There are a number of ways we can work together; collaborations, being a featured business, or advertising on the website.
As I mentioned above I am also a qualified Social Media Marketer and work with a number of clients to provide training, coaching and strategy work as well as day to day management of social media platforms.
How I work
My blog has been successful I believe, because it’s a relate-able, honest and authentic view. I’m always on the look out for new places, particularly those hidden gems.
I am a parent myself so I look for both the places that wow you and those that make life a bit easier. I have a checklist in my mind of what I’m looking for, which of course includes the obvious facilities but also those that go the extra mile. This is where the magic really happens.
I believe in being kind. I’m honest yes but I don’t believe in writing negative comments. I am honest with businesses as well as my audience. I once went to somewhere that had recently opened and was aimed at families but didn’t have any highchairs. After a quick chat with the owner she ordered some from Ikea whilst I was there. I loved that she was so open to improving her service.
I am constantly amazed by how imaginative businesses are being and love that I’ve had the opportunity to work with some incredible start ups.
