Hello, I am Charlotte Left, sometimes known as 'The Marmalade Lady.' I am an Instagram Consultant and Social Media Manager and started Social Marmalade in 2018 after a long career in the travel industry.
How did I go from travel to Instagram? It all started when moved out to Hampshire and decided to do a course and learn more about social media, as was a huge gap in my marketing knowledge. I actually focused on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, but I discovered the real opportunity was on Instagram and being the social media dinosaur at the time, I took my time to really research, test and understand how the platform works so I help others feel more confident using it to. It remains a HUGE opportunity for individuals, small businesses and brands who want to get in front of and engage with their ideal audience on a small budget.
I have spent the last four years working with and training hundreds of small businesses, individuals, marketing teams, and brands with their launches and social media strategy. I am finding Reels are the main focus and I have been producing content for a select number of clients as well as running private workshops and personal 1:1's. If you would like to see some of the brands I have worked with tap here.
'My mission is to see individuals and businesses feel really confident with using Instagram to help grow their business . It is all about finding that magic formula, being realistic with your resources and being authentic so your audience will love what they see and hopefully become customers'
