Bufferr – Showcase of the Day!!!
What an honour! Thank you so much to Freddie, Martha and the team at Freddie Pig HQ for honouring us as their showcase winners of the day. I woke to a snowy Sheffield but jumped out of bed, clicked my heals together and did a yeeeee haaaaw. Then I dithered in the sub zero temperatures for a bit and jumped on my Mac Book to write this post.
bufferr (yes that’s with 2 r’s) are a business based in Sheffield founded by Jon Covey and Sarah Marks we started out teaching the world of business how to use social media effectively and get a positive return on investment from the time dedicated to the world of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+ etc.
What we quickly discovered was that people who attended our workshops and those in house workshops we delivered were amazed by what they could achieve when they used social media effectively, but practically everyone would say “I love it and I need to use it but I just don’t have the time can you do it for me.”
So we started to do more and more management of social media accounts on behalf of our clients. Most importantly what makes us stand out is that we don’t just shout offers and sell, sell, sell. We actually engage with our clients’ customers, it is SOCIAL media.
We provide our clients training, management, strategy, Facebook Applications and viral videos. We pride ourselves in the personal touch and consider all our clients as friends and as such do everything to make their business a success. We have a very wide variety of clients from ecommerce to law firms and blue chip companies.
Social Media applies to every business as 50% of people value a companies Facebook profile more than their website due to the peer to peer recommendation of Facebook, it is transparent and shows the world what others think of your business and the personality behind it rather than the image you want to portray.
Jon and Sarah have a very exciting announcement this weekend and we’d love to share it with you today but you are all going to need to watch this space and follow @bufferr1 for all the news…
Thanks again Freddie for bringing businesses together and sharing the love, you are awesome.
