Prior to the workshop what was the business' social media activity & problems? We'd been using social media for a few years and it had really started to become an important business tool for us. As it began to grow, we quickly realised that we needed guidance to effectively manage all of our accounts and campaigns, which is where RAW came in!

How was your day? We’ve attended and received several training sessions. We’ve always found them really informative, but in a structured way so it’s not too much to take in! They differ to other workshops because rather than just telling the group what to do, the trainer was thorough and showed us everything in live examples.

Thoughts about RAW? A really talented group of people! Keep doing what you're doing.

Prior to the workshop what was the business' social media activity & problems? We are only in the initial stages of setting up a social media platform for MACAW Engineering. Subsequently, our social media activity was very low. We felt that we needed this training to kick start our social media presence.

How was your day? The trainer who took the social media masterclass was very knowledgeable and open to any questions. The content delivered in the training exceeded our expectations. Despite, our employee’s being relatively social media savvy, all of the employees involved in the training came away having learnt something new about social media.

Thoughts about RAW? We were thoroughly impressed with the professional service that RAW provided.

Prior to the workshop what was the business' social media activity & problems? Evolution has been active on social media since its inception but, having never had any social media training, both myself and my colleague were just doing as we thought best. It was a comfort to know what we were doing was right but also what we could do even better.

How was your day? James is wonderful; a great and enthusiastic trainer who’s open to questions throughout delivery of the training and is happy to help with any questions, no matter how stupid you may think they are. He’d done a thorough appraisal of our current social media marketing activities, mainly focussing on Twitter, and had useful suggestions and hints to help us elevate our standard to even headier heights!

Thoughts about RAW? We love RAW. As a brand they’ve grown and developed into a unique proposition offering social media training to a wide range of sectors and businesses and, because they aren’t competing against other marketing/brand/PR agencies, their customer base is even wider than traditional marketing firms offering social media training as an add-on. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending training with RAW – a superb business and a superb team! #ItsRAWLife

How would you describe your RAW experience? The training was very informative, we thought we knew a little about social media but in actual fact we didn’t at all. The training made us more confident in using social media correctly. We were complete novices and the support opened our eyes of what we can do, and what we have to do online. The support has made us very enthusiastic about social media. RAW worked with us patiently and showed us how we can use social media, it’s not as scary as we thought! We couldn’t have done it without RAW’s help and support!

What are the best things you've learnt?

Google Analytics - I personally felt by bringing my laptop doing/using real life examples was the best way to learn, I've logged on in the past and been a bit clueless with what it means. I liked how this course covered multiple areas across the day, giving me a further understanding.

Hewitts Solicitors are a fast growing solicitors firm in the North East, we delivered a tailored social media masterclass to the team, covering Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Content Creation and the social media management tool Hootsuite.

Where does the business provide services?: Teesside, County Durham and North Yorkshire

No. of employees?: 110

Prior to the workshop what was the businesses social media activity?: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube

How would you describe the obstacles Hewitts faced in using social media?: 

We acknowledged that social media had a huge role to play in raising the profile of our business and ensuring interaction between ourselves and our client base. But, we have limited resources to expend a significant amount of time contributing to it, so we wanted to consider ways of using tools such as Hootsuite to manage the various mediums more effectively, but also expanding our general knowledge of the tools within each application to get the most out of it.

How was the session?

The sessions was informative, interesting and at times entertaining.  A huge amount of information was given in a short space of time but done so in a way that was easy to understand, targeted specifically at our business and client audience. We came away from the session with lots of useful tips and ideas that we have already begun to put into practice.  We have no doubt that the session has enhanced our understanding of social media platforms and allowed us to use our time more effectively.

Thoughts about RAW overall?

We have been incredibly satisfied with the service received from RAW.  They have been helpful, friendly and professional and most of all the outcomes from the training were invaluable to our business.  We were very impressed with Daniel who came to do our training as he spoke to us in a language we could understand and made the day completely enjoyable as well as educative.  We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
