Jodie Cook has become one of the UK’s leading social media experts having established her social media agency back in 2011. Jodie has worked with hundreds of large and small businesses across a variety of sectors, from hospitality to education and manufacturing to property. JC Social Media is now one of the largest specialist social media agencies in the UK and deliver services including comprehensive social media management and training.
Social media now plays a huge role in the lives of everyone in the UK and it is down to businesses to utilise it as a marketing, engagement and lead-generation tool. Through personal use of social networks like Facebook, most people understand the basic functions of social platforms, but businesses tend to require help from the experts to generate a return from their social media marketing activity.
Jodie discovered the power of social media for business whilst on a graduate scheme and founded her social media company the day after it finished. Since then, Jodie has developed an unprecedented knowledge of social media and its application for businesses with a range of marketing goals in a wide range of sectors. This expertise has led her to speak at national events and work with organisations including the NHS, British Athletics and Lloyds Banking Group, and write a book on social media interaction.
Alongside husband, Ben, Jodie has penned a further four books on digital marketing. See her Amazon author page here.
