At J&PR we love helping people learn and develop their skills in social media and public relations. We have now expanded our training services to include mentoring, as well as our Two-Hour Takeover. Our mentoring sessions are the perfect way for you to develop your knowledge and skills in your chosen area while still having regular check ins and guidance. Here's everything you need to know about our mentoring sessions...

What is mentoring?

To advise or train.

Or in a bit more detail:

“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills and improve their performance.”

And that is exactly what we do here at J&PR for business owners that want to take on their own digital marketing - but just don’t have the confidence to do it alone.

We work with you to maximise the impact of your marketing efforts, develop your skills in online and offline PR and marketing and help you to improve the performance of your marketing so that you achieve your goals.

How can we mentor you in your business?

Our mentoring sessions are held twice a month to allow us to work with you on preparing what you will be doing for the month, and then looking back and analysing what is going well and what you may like to change.

What is included in the mentoring sessions?

Everything and anything that you may need. We can be a sounding board, an information source, a teacher - or even a shoulder to cry on (although we aim to make sure it never comes to that!).

Who are the sessions for?

Although our sessions are open to everyone we have two main target markets:

Employees tasked with managing social media and/or digital marketing

If you have an employee, or are an employee, that is taking on the role of running social media platforms and scripting blogs or press releases for your business, alongside another role, then they may need our support.

We can work with them over a period of time to ensure they are comfortable with that role and establish a working structure that enables them to move forward productively and achieve the aims and objectives you have.

Business owners managing social media and/or digital marketing themselves

If you are a business owner and are managing your marketing yourself you may need some tips and tricks on how to work it into a busy role, or a structure that you can easily work to alongside the work you have to do to produce products or services.

You may also need a regular reminder and motivation to work on your marketing and its aims and objectives as you move forward.

How much do the sessions cost?

Costs vary depending on the type and length of mentoring and whether you are part of a group or having mentoring one-to-one. Our group sessions cost from £25 plus VAT per hour, dependent on numbers.

We also offer our Two-Hour Takeover sessions at £149.00 plus VAT where a member of the team will work with you for two hours on any aspect of your marketing strategy - whether that be scripting a social media schedule, writing a press release or blog or learning about specific platforms.
