Making Fairtrade Matter – Social Progress Guest Blog

This Fairtrade Fortnight we are hosting a Fairtrade Conference for schools across Kirklees. We are thrilled that local business Social Progress have come on board as a sponsor for the event. We welcome them to the guest blog so they can introduce themselves:

“Hi, we’re Social Progress, a Social Media Agency based in Honley, Holmfirth.  We specialise in all things social media, from set up and optimisation, to social media strategy, training and account management. In this digital age, being present on social media is crucial for all businesses and organisations.  With around 58 million active social media users in the UK alone, not having a presence means you could be massively restricting your audience without even realising!

Many organisations understand that they should be on social media, but don’t quite know where to begin. Which platforms should you be on? How often should you post? What should you be posting about? That’s where we come in! We understand the ins and outs of the social media world, so you don’t have to. Whether it’s some training to get you started, or a case of outsourcing your social media management altogether, we can help you get found on social media!

At Social Progress, sustainability is at the heart of all that we do, and we are always striving to make more sustainable choices wherever we can. We are proud to be a Fairtrade business and support Fairtrade by providing Fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar for all our visitors and clients when they come for an appointment or attend one of our business networking events. We are strong believers of human rights and fair pay for all workers everywhere, and buying Fairtrade produce is a simple way to support this movement and help make the world a better place.

As partners and good friends of fairandfunky, we are thrilled to be sponsoring their Fairtrade Conference for schools and attended the event to kickstart Fairtrade Fortnight.  It has been a brilliant event to be part of in past years, and we are very excited for it to be back after the hardships of the last couple of years.”

Social media becomes a big campaigning platform during Fairtrade Fortnight – watch out and follow hashtags #ChooseFairtrade #FairtradeFortnight #FairtradeSCRAPtastic and make some new connections. Don’t restrict those audiences!
