It’s great to have Alison of Avocado Social on the Kobestarr Digital Podcast! Alison is well known for her Social Media skills, both in terms of working with clients and with teaching courses and speaking. During my chat with her it was easy to see why.
Alison has been working in Social Media since 2008. She graduated with a degree in journalism at a time when the economic downturn unfortunately meant that it would be tougher than ever to get into the national papers. Alison’s resourcefulness took her to Twitter as a way of getting in touch with the journalists and the papers and then that lead to her proving to be invaluable to them from a Social Media point of view.
This lead on to work with big agencies and when companies asked for Social it tended to be Alison that fitted the bill. Her work in this time lead to working for big clients including helping to launch the Tesco Facebook page.
Avocado Social was born out of the desire to work with smaller clients on a more personal level.
Alison is due to launch her own online Social Media Course (It may be available depending on when you read this). We talk about how the idea for the course came about and how you guys can all view it!
I hope you enjoy the show!
