Company aims to take the fear out of social media

27th Sep 2017 / By Alistair Driver

A new company has been set up to help farmers and rural business owners get to grips with social media training. 

social jungleSocial Jungle provides social media training and advice specific to the agriculture, food and rural business sectors. Set up by Simon Haley and Alison Teare, who teamed up after attending the Challenge of Rural Leadership course in 2015, they said it aims to educate and give the sector confidence in how to use social media for business growth and development. 

Alison, who has over 20 years’ experience in business and marketing, said: "Changes in the platform, including video and live streaming, have only extended these opportunities and the agriculture and food sectors are ideally placed to benefit from them."

Simon, a Rural Business Consultant and co-founders of AgriChat UK, and founder of Farmers of the UK and Farmers of the World on Twitter, added: "Social media has the power to influence, inform and engage an audience. Our aim is to educate, to inspire and instil confidence and to reduce the fear that often affects business owners and organisations that first venture into the rounds of social media.”

Social Jungle has delivered seminars, workshops and training across the UK this year. The next training event, including the very latest innovations in the world of social media, will take place at Harper Adams University on November 23 for delegates from companies, organisations and charities within the sector.
