Had my first training session last week and gained so much in such a short time. Can’t wait to see what further education I can gain from future courses to really nail down my social advertising skills. Highly recommend.

I attended Simone’s ‘Writing For Social Media’ course. I can highly recommend Simone and Social Media AOK, not only have my writing skills improved but our online presence and following have continued to increase. I have now sent several staff to other courses held by Simone, from which they come back inspired, motivated and informed.

Simone and Social Media AOK operate in a class all of their own. They bring commercial reality to social madness. Clearly defined strategies for multiple social platforms, transparent performance metrics and most importantly, results! Don’t bother trying to do this yourself, do it right the first time with Simone and SMAOK.
I have recently engaged Social Media AOK to educate me, plan, organise and execute a Social Media strategy for my business. I have delighted how smoothly the process has gone. Simone and her team have always returned focus to some measurable KPI’s that highlights their ability to communicate a Social Media Strategy in a Business context. They have remained easily accessible, have dealt with any concerns with ease and confidence. I have valued and learnt from each meeting and look forward to our plans extending into the future. I am very happy to recommend the services of Social Media AOK.

What is really great about Simone is that she is a small business person who has been through the ups and downs of business and everything she does is done through that lens.

Director, Membership & Business Development, Master Builders SA
I came across Tamara at a Brand SA social media masterclass she was hosting. Her talks were incredibly informative and valuable to our staff. I subsequently used Social Media AOK’s service to help assist with on of the many media social media projects I was working on. Her professionalism is exceptional, particularly with working on difficult or sensitive subject matters. It was a relief to find someone to trust with such high profile projects. She is transparent with information, gets great results and is a real pleasure to work with.
Communications Lead & Content Specialist, Renewal SA
Tamara recently managed the online social media activation campaign supporting a business breakfast I ran for 275 local business people. Her strategy of engaging with delegates in the lead up to the event and interacting via a Tweetwall during the event helped elevate us to rank #2 on Twitter nationally and #1 locally (trending higher than the earthquake in Adelaide overnight). This was a real marketing scoop for my business — thank you so much Tamara!
Executive Director, BNI SA Adelaide CBD & South
Tamara was a guest speaker at the 2016 Digital Marketing Workshop hosted by the Australian Digital Publishing Group. She spoke on the benefits of social media engagement in relation to book publishing and online marketing, specifically Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Attendees of the workshop spoke highly of Tamara’s expertise and presentation, which was professional and informative. Tamara has an obvious skill set and knowledge base in social media marketing that I can recommend to other businesses seeking her services.

Tamara presents social media training for job seekers in our group training sessions. Her presentations are very engaging (lots of hands on learning) and had everybody listening intently even though they had their social media pages open! I would recommend Tamara for her depth of knowledge on Social Media and optimising it for job seeking activities.
Principal Advisor, Parternaire
Simone came highly recommended by our Marketing & Communications Manager and absolutely lived up to expectations. Simone is a very informative and engaging presenter that we’d absolutely call upon again for training our staff in all things social media. Our three-hour session absolutely flew by and our entire group, with varying levels of exposure to the subject matter, learned so much.
Board Member – Seed Foundation Australia
I was super impressed by the level of knowledge that Simone Douglas has in the social media space. I saw Simone speak to a room of 100 CEO’s, small business owners and entrepreneurs. Simone elegantly and expertly shared distinctions and gold nuggets with me and the others in the room which will have a direct impact on how we DO social media moving forward. Simone also challenged the room to either 30 days of video post onto social media, or 30 days of trying something different on social media. I’m choosing option A. I highly recommend Simone for your keynote, training and/or as a social media strategist to you.
CEO, Positive Training Solutions

Simone has the knack of making the complexities of social media understandable as well as interesting. She is very knowledgeable in this field and her communication style is relaxed and very relatable.

Highly recommended.
