Social media firm celebrates half decade with launch of new clinics

To mark its fifth anniversary, Visually Explained is launching a series of FREE social clinics. The aim? To help businesses with their social media. What better thing to do when a social media firm is five?

The company is set to run a free social media clinic at its Royal Wootton Bassett headquarters, in Bowman House, on the first Tuesday of every month.

Starting from February 4, businesses can book a half-hour slot. In these sessions they can access expert help with social media. Everything from how to create a platform and when to post, to advice on content and frequency.

Yola O’Hara founded her company five years ago. She now works with clients across Swindon, Wiltshire, and along the M4 corridor.

In the first instance she set VE up to offer data visualisation through infographics. But Visually Explained soon diversified into social media in response to demand.

Now Yola and her team specialise in:

  • Outsourced social media
  • creating social media libraries for clients
  • auditing social media platforms and 
  • running social media training programmes and workshops.

During its five years, both VE and Yola have been finalists in two sets of awards: Wiltshire Business Awards and, more recently, South West Business and Community Awards. 

Passion for Social Media

‘I’m passionate about social media and how effective it can be for businesses. Yet, businesses have to do social media well and consistently, to bring results. I want businesses to appreciate its importance and to understand what it can do for their organisations,’ said Yola.

‘I am also very proud to have achieved my first five years in business. Five years, in the world of social media, is a long time. Social media is in a state of constant flux. We pride ourselves on keeping bang up-to-date with what is happening in this dynamic arena.’

Visually Explained already offers free clinics in Bristol, on the last Tuesday of the month at The Orange Tree Hub. In addition, VE is launching a third series in Cheltenham in March, aimed at cyber security businesses.
