You know you could do better with the right tweaks and strategies, and you're craving the shared wisdom of others in the same boat as you.
I get it - we are social creatures, especially those of us in social media!
You're not alone. For years I've been asked for a service that supports more experienced social media coordinators who know the basics and are looking for more advanced support.
Don't go to another conference, register for yet another webinar or google any more courses! These professional learning opportunities can be useful, but they are information only and don't provide accountability or tailored advice.
The Social Media Progress Mastermind will be held through virtual sessions as a whole group over a 6 month period, as well as 1:1 mentoring sessions with me. Unlike conferences and webinars, a mastermind provides accountability and tailored discussion.
Expand those horizons - engage with people and organisations outside your normal networks
Break the rules - stop signing up for webinars and never watching the replay
Give yourself the headspace - jump off the content hamster wheel
Fast track progress - why figure it out on your own when you can leap your way there faster
Public health, health promotion, community engagement, advocacy, human, social or community services focused organisations
Small teams or individual staff members managing communications and social media
Governments or not-for-profits
Individual business owners including consultants, freelancers, or start-ups
Researchers or academics looking to cement their personal brand online
Feel more confident to design, implement and evaluate your social media and communications strategy
Gain insights into how other organisations are managing the same issues as you
Feel confident to lead others in social media
Feel inspired to challenge the status quo and keep doing better
Old ways won't open new doors!
On hold until 2022

As the owner of a busy Occupational Therapy practice with several social media channels and no dedicated social media officer, last year I found myself in the awkward position of feeling like I was simultaneously drowning in social media while also underutilising it.
I knew I had to find a way to make my social media work better for myself and my business, so I turned to Kristy Schirmer of Zockmelon.
Her advice proved so fruitful, it enabled us to streamline our social media presence, create a more cohesive brand and be able to focus on the themes and messages we really wanted to take to our community.
As an allied health practice owner, I also appreciated Kristy’s background in public health and health promotion. She understood the unique demands and restrictions of representing a health business in the social media world. I highly recommend her services to any other business, specifically those in the health and allied health industries.
