Last Tuesday, we held our third Social Media for Florists workshop in London. And what a truly amazing day it was! I’m getting goose bumps simply writing this post…it was so very special. Thank you so much to all the wonderful florists who came from all over the UK and Ireland.
This is the first of three blog posts which I’ll be writing about the day, featuring stunning photographs by the talented Katie Spicer and in this first one, I’ll be focusing on the workshop content.
The morning started at 9.15am at our venue, the fabulous Brixton East in London, with tea and coffee for the delegates downstairs. It was also a chance for them to mingle and get to know each other, before we headed upstairs.
Facebook and Twitter were next on the agenda. We showed the delegates shining examples of florists who had beautifully customised both platforms and inspired them with ideas of what to post.
Lunch was an amazing feast for both the eyes and taste buds. And oh my, the desserts!
We started the afternoon session by looking at Instagram, which is fast becoming a firm favourite social media platform for florists! After being shown some beautiful images plus hearing some hints and tips for taking photographs, the delegates took photos around the venue. If you’d like to see them, click here.
Thank you so much to all the delegates for coming and making it such an enjoyable day! Here are some of their lovely comments:
