Despite me known for mainly working on dating and relationships, I have always had an interest in Social Media marketing, networking and seminars as everyone uses some form of social media in their personal or business life and I always wanted to hold events for business owners on how they can benefit from Social Media and marketing and I aim to hold many events like this in the whole of the UK and Internationally. I will launch The Association for Social Media Managers which will serve as the premier global professional organisation and internationally recognised accrediting body for social media marketing professionals. Our mission is focused on three components: Training, Credentialing, and Recruiting
