Purple Coffee’s Creative Director Simon English presents a Master Class in Social Media and SEO to TheBestOf.co.uk

On the 17th November Simon English ran a day long social media and search engine optimisation workshop for The Best Of franchisees at The Best Of’s head office in Solihull, Birmingham.

Guernsey Web Design Company Purple Coffee attend “The Guernsey Small Business Seminar – A Passion for Business”

Today marked the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce small business networking event – “A Passion for Business.” The event held at St Pierre Park Hotel in Guernsey was a fantastic chance for local businesses to learn from guest speakers, network with and learn from one another. Social media marketing in the form of Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for Guernsey businesses was a hot topic of conversation.

We look forward to supporting Guernsey businesses in identifying how and when to use social media. Purple Coffee feels strongly that correct and responsible planning of social media activities is integral success for businesses. Many Guernsey based businesses find social media an intimidating prospect and require guidance and assistance to make the right decisions rather than making hasty ones based on the relative accessibility and availability of social media platforms and tools.…Read More
