Social Media Mentoring via Zoom

I offer Online Live Video Social Media Mentoring (live sessions on Zoom) where we can screenshare your Facebook Page, Instagram account, Youtube channel etc. I can mentor you on a number of topics depending on the number of hours chosen and your priorities (click here if you would prefer to spend a DAY in the BLUE MOUNTAINS):

Curriculum for Mentoring over Zoom

  • fix your Business Suite or Facebook Business Manager, Ad Accounts, Facebook and Instagram ads, pixel apps and more
  • how to create content calendars and engagement and subscriber growth
  • writing and understanding Social Media analytics and Insights reports, analysing and using the benchmarks
  • in fact, helping you to research, write and publish Reports, Social Media Strategy and Campaign documents
  • how to choose between social media dashboards, tools, and scheduling
  • learn strategies for dealing with Social Media Crisis Comms (negative criticism and trolls) 
  • gain an understanding of risk, regulatory and other executive issues around Social Media
  • how to obtain more Leads, Customers, Stakeholder engagement for your social media channels
  • how to livestream with studio software to multiple online locations, produce videos and create educational material
  • install and write a corporate blog (website hub) with social media news releases and integration with social media platforms (spoke)

These Social Media Mentoring sessions are for 1) those who want a one on one live mentoring experience rather than prerecorded online video courses or 2) companies with a team or department who are interested in group sessions.  These sessions are suitable for those who cannot make it to my live classroom courses in Sydney CBD and elsewhere. Please note that group training is always slightly slower (with more input and results!) than individual training.

Zoom with Laurel Papworth

It’s really up to you want you want to learn: LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok… all the platforms? Strategy, campaigns, analytics, content creation? Sure we can do that. Video production, livestreaming podcasting, online courses? Yep Ive got you covered. We’ll go through carefully to make sure that your learning outcomes are what YOU want!

Fees and information

The terms and conditions may have more information for you but I would ask you to complete your sessions within 3 months (longer by negotiation, but hey, not 5 years please!) Also on the final page of the booking information you will be given a link to book your hour(s). If you bookmark that link, you can cancel, reschedule and so on. You can reschedule up to 2 working days before the session. GST is inclusive and upon payment you will be given a GST Receipt. You will be sent a link for your Zoom booking before the event.

If you have chosen Team/Department sessions please make sure you send the link to your attendees. If you have more than 10 attendees please contact me as the setup is slightly different. I – as long as the tech complies!! – record the videos and make them available to attendees so they have a record of the session. Online prerecorded courses (if available) are also included to ensure that learning continues after the sessions. Please note there is homework and I may send out cheat sheets and workbooks where appropriate. To gain most value from the sessions it’s usually a good idea to look at them!
