Social Media For Small Businesses

We have built Common Farm Flowers entirely on social media, first on Twitter, then Facebook and now of course Instagram as well as a little of Pinterest.  We now have around thirty thousand followers across the board, plus a very engaged newsletter following.  We have never used paid advertising and have made all our sales, press contacts, and joint venture relationships through social media.

This year alone we’ve had press in Homes and Antiques Magazine, Town and Country Magazine, The Saturday Telegraph, the Weekend FT, The Smallholder, all contacts made, or inspired by our social media feeds.  We will be on Escape to the Country as well at some point during the autumn.  All of this press has come to us because of Social Media.

The best part, though, about social media, is that you talk directly to your customers, every day, about what you do.  You build a relationship with them.  And so when they buy from you it’s not just because they like what you do, but because they like you too, and because they see you often, as though you’re a shop in their local town which they pass often and can’t resist popping into.  

Building a social media following is not something you can do overnight, but if you do create a good following with a little focus and some strategy then you will a) find you have lots of new customers, b) build relationships with likeminded businesses which invite you to join with them on special ventures, c) find you are a go-to person for your area of press, and d) you’ll drive masses of traffic to your website - yes, we will talk about blogging on the day - so pushing your search engine optimisation and therefore your google ranking higher, and therefore creating a good market for what you do.

A day at Common Farm Flowers learning how we run our social media platforms and our blog will inspire how and why you could make so much more of yours.  There are only ten places on each date so do book quickly.  

The cost of the workshop includes lunch, coffee, tea, cake. All our workshops include delicious refreshments so please advise us of any food allergies and intolerances at the time of booking.

Maximum number of people attending the workshop will be 10. 

The workshop runs from 10am – 3pm and takes place at Common Farm Flowers, Charlton Musgrove, Somerset.

What can you expect when you order our flowers?
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
