About Jonathan: Freelance social media trainer

Jonathan Pollinger

Hello – I’m Jonathan Pollinger, a freelance social media trainer and I’m here to help you love social media as much as I do.

Social media can make a huge difference to your business or organisation as they can help achieve your objectives. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter and newer social networks like TikTok and Snapchat can raise awareness of your business or charity, help you to attract more customers, as well as boost sales and profits.

With working from home becoming more common, I can also show you how to use Zoom and Teams like a pro. This will ensure that you to work effectively whether you are collaborating with colleagues or presenting to clients you’ll be able to keep them interested and engaged.

My background

I’ve been working as a social media trainer providing straightforward, practical training for small businesses and charities since 2009…before social media for business was a thing! Before that I’d always been interested in bringing people together using technology, just as social media does today.

It’s my speciality and my passion – and I’ve over 110 testimonials on LinkedIn to prove it.

Over the past twelve years, I’ve worked with small businesses, PR and social media agencies, charities, an MP, local government, business owners, other freelancers and more recently social media influencers.

If I’m not providing training, I’ll probably be out running around Cardiff Bay. I love running as it helps keep me fit and gives me energy. There can’t be many sports where you can continue to improve at my age!
