Work Experience at Loving Social Media Managers in Enfield
“Before starting my work trial at Loving Social Media I had mixed emotions. I was nervous of the unknown but also excited for what was to come. I heard such great things about Garry Kousoulou and how he could benefit my career. So far it hasn’t disappointed, the staff have been amazing, it’s a perfect atmosphere for a workplace, fun and bubbly but also determined to succeed and complete the task in hand.”
“Gary is a great boss and Thegz is an amazing teacher. They have both taught me so much already in my 10 days and I hope I could learn more from them in the future. During my first couple of days at Loving Work Experience at Loving Social Media – Social Media Managers in EnfieldSocial Media, it was very nerve-racking, however, the team really made me feel welcome. I knew it wouldn’t be easy because on the first day I had a task over the two weeks to get 2000 followers on a brand new TwitterBeginner’s Guide to Twitter account. Gary and Thegz both gave me tips and advice on how to gain more followers and just general tips on how to keep a good, interesting twitter page. In the first couple days they also taught me about Likealyzer, and how you could check your Facebook score and it also explains what you’re doing wrong and right with your Facebook page.”
“In the beginning of my second week at Loving Social Media I had achieved 1,200 followers all within the correct area. Gary was very pleased and it gave me such boost and motivated me for the rest of week. Before I started the work trial I wasn’t really up to date with Twitter however by the 2nd week I was confident with Tweeting the right stuff. I was using the tips Gary and Thegz taught me and also was researching on the big companies Twitter pages and see what they were doing right. It was mainly keep your followers engaged and keep your Twitter page interesting.”
“During my second week I was also involved more with Gary’s opticians, GoodLooking Optics. Being on the shop floor and keeping the customers happy. At GoodLooking optics the customer service was very different to any other opticians I’ve been to. As a client you would never be ignored, you’ll receive the right stuff to keep you happy, Tea and Biscuit while you wait, can’t go wrong with that service. Gary taught me to never ignore the customers, and just make them feel welcome into the shop. On the shop floor I also learnt to call customers to inform them that their glasses or contacts were available in the shop to pick up.”
“On the last couple of days Gary invited me to his business workshop, where 10-15 small business owners turned up to learn more about how social media could help improve your business. There were businesses from Wedding planners to School uniforms, a vary of businesses. While I was there I learnt so much more from the workshop. Gary and Thegz explained how Twitter and Facebook worked for your business, they explained that why should you pay for adverts when you could simply promote your business on social media. I also learnt the structure of a business; operations, finance and marketing.
During the workshop Gary gave me an opportunity to speak in front of everyone and explain how I had achieved gaining so many followers in just over a week, and how I felt about my time working with Loving Social Media. I wasn’t just the only one to gain knowledge during the workshop, everybody left there very satisfied with now knowing what to do on social media to gain a better business status.”

My Time At Loving Social Media 02/10/2022 Precious (Adaobi) Ojiaku
Recently, I began my very first corporate internship at a marketing company, Loving Social Media. Before this, I was a student at Coventry University hoping to pave my way into my career via graduating, until I realised that studying and attending lectures was not the route for me. Due to me being a very practical, hands-on type of learner, I wanted to take time off and explore new ways in which I can get to where I want to be. Upon doing so I landed at a marketing company that was willing to help and build me up to the best I can be.
During my first week working at the agency, I was tasked to read through various websites that the company was managing. After thoroughly exploring the website, I had to then write a review on everything about its content and its functionality for a user. To accomplish this, I researched what makes a good website and what it needs in order to entice potential users. I meticulously sifted through the website looking for any issues such as whether or not buttons and hyperlinks were made clear to users, if the use of CTA buttons was executed properly, the aesthetic of the page, and how it is structured. By completing said tasks, I was able to ascertain what goes into SEO and the skill sets needed; I had to utilise my critical thinking skills to understand and put forward ideas to better suit the website and its usability. I also had to reinforce my analytical skills to identify the positives and negatives of the page. By doing so I came to understand that the use of the skills I acquired would indeed aid me in my career path, for the reason that, these skills are transferable to other potential jobs, for example, project management.
To add to this, I was given the responsibility of creating content for an upcoming event that my mentor was hosting. I was required to create a post that involved succinct information about the event and incorporate images and colours that further advertised it. To complete this, I familiarised myself with Canva, which is a platform made to help users customize and design posters, slogans, and logos for any reason. Using canva opened up my imagination and in a sense ignited my creative skills to help me turn my ideas into a reality. This, in turn, taught me how to transform and transfer my ideas onto a screen, and properly convey them with splashes of colour, shapes, and fonts. This is very useful to me as I can think outside of the box and generate different perspectives to further illustrate a bigger picture. A skill like this serves some usefulness because it forces one’s mind to ‘shift gears’ and take on a different approach to things that do not align with a norm. Subsequently, I can apply this to other jobs by implementing refreshing, new ideas that are required- and excel at it.
Luckily enough, I was given the responsibility of managing a client’s social media platform. During my time on this task, I was expected to increase user engagement and raise the client’s following. How I went about this was by going through their followers, followers and finding other pages that posted content similar to or the same as theirs. Upon finding pages that fit the category, I followed, liked, and commented on their posts intending to get their attention and increase brand awareness; this included complementing them on their posts and liking up to 5 pictures on their profile. On top of that, I navigated my way through the internet to find institutions like schools, that could potentially become buyers of the client’s brand. In doing so I reached out and contacted them, in hopes that they would be willing to work with the client. All of this taught me the importance of responsibility and how it could make or break your reputation with a client. Being given access to clients shows me that responsibilities not only assist in being the best candidate for the job but also enhance the employment experience and fulfilment as a member of the company. In the end, this enhances your productivity and efficiency. I now realise that further ahead in my career, this attribute will demonstrate my professionalism and how valuable I am to any future employers, nevertheless, it would benefit me as I will be able to form professional bonds with my future co-workers.
