Instagram for Florists Online Course
It’s been the final week of my 6 week Instagram for Florists online course. And we’ve been focusing on Insights and the Algorithm. It’s been so lovely to spend time with the students, who are based all over the world. And here are a few of their kind words:
You teach and write so well, you make it joyful. xx
Your course has not only made social media easier for me, it’s also helped me home in on what I want my new business to look like.
‘Your course is so well done. I’ve raved about it to all my friends.
I’ll be opening registration for the course again in the New Year. So, if you’d like to be one of the first to know when registration is re-opening, simply sign up to the Waiting List by clicking here.
