Hi, I’m Marian Murphy. I’m a professional social media consultant and the founder of a Hertfordshire-based agency that’s helped hundreds of companies and entrepreneurs get to grips with social media marketing for their business.
Throughout my career, I have always worked in target-driven environments. I achieved a degree in business, which gave me invaluable knowledge of the corporate world, and I have years of experience in sales and business development. But after returning to the workforce in 2012 after a career break, I was intrigued by how social platforms seemed to be changing the goalposts in terms of how companies were able to promote themselves to their prospective clients.
Social media - and particularly its use in the corporate arena - was a hot topic at this point, and I was yearning to learn more. I quickly set about finding out everything there was to know about this flourishing field.
I was fascinated to discover that companies were generating amazing results from social marketing. Businesses, large and small were promoting themselves in exciting ways on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and various other platforms, and social media was seemingly revolutionising the way brands were able to attract, and then interact with, their target audience.
My research ignited a new passion within me, and several months later, in June 2013, I founded Flourish With Social Media.
Now, I deliver affordable social media solutions to forward-thinking businesses in Hertfordshire, London and beyond.
My aim is – and always has been - to bring creative, effective social media marketing services to any business that wants to make good use of all the amazing tools on offer from some of the world’s most popular social platforms.
Many companies completely understand the importance of social media, but don’t necessarily have the resources to employ an in-house social marketing manager. This is where I can help. I bridge the gap for time-strapped businesses, bringing them comprehensive training, mentoring and consultancy solutions without the headcount!
Several years and many successful campaigns later, I am linked to over 4000 social media marketers around the globe, all of whom share information and provide a wide pool of resources to our clients. I am also a certified Hootsuite Professional and a member of the Social Media Marketing Society.
I have worked with organisations in different disciplines; from construction companies to retailers, from education providers to pioneering brands in the health and well being sector. My skills can be applied to enterprises across all kinds of industries because I offer social media support to my clients in many ways. Regardless of their goals or aspirations, I want to help them present the best version of their business to the communities that matter to them online – and to do so, I rely on a highly personalised approach that delves deep into their values and focuses on telling their brand’s unique story.
Perhaps you feel that social media is passing your company by. Maybe your campaign has stalled and you need to breathe fresh life into your strategy. In either case, Flourish With Social Media is here to boost your social marketing efforts with a wide array of bespoke consultancy, management and training solutions that can be tailored to suit all kinds of objectives and budgets.
