Don't take our word for it, here's what Kiwi business owners like you have to say about Socialites Academy...

"I've been very lucky to have been able to go through the whole spectrum of Social Media training. By getting people to follow me on Facebook and Instagram and being able to attract the right audience, I have seen quite an increase in followers on both platforms over the last few months, also resulting in new photography workshop participants. My Facebook and Instagram life has changed a lot since those early days, in such a way that it takes me just minutes to put solid adverts on Instagram and not much longer on Facebook. What else can I say than thank you for giving me this great opportunity."

- Robert Peper, NZ Photography Tours

"We were very impressed with the course. Our Facebook page following has grown to 56K with high engagement, and our ROI has vastly improved. We loved learning at our own pace, and the support offered. We have been using the #hashtag strategy on our Instagram account, which has taken our posts from very few likes to high performing posts."

- Julie Goodman, Xtend-Life Natural Products

"I absolutely loved completing the course, for someone who had limited experience with social media and the tools you could access to benefit your business I found this course explained every aspect step by step and allowed me to really maximise my social media exposure. Following completion of the course I set up a Facebook Advertising Campaign and Instagram promotion for our 8 Week Challenge, I was able to effectively target and use the tools provided in the training to ensure that our campaign had maximum effect. The result was we had 30 new members sign up for our challenge after less than a week of the campaign which was a huge increase compared to 10 in our previous campaign for our last challenge."

- Kate McEntee, F45 Training
