“I can honestly say that I owe so much of my growth to the awesome team at Platform Media and the PlatForum workshop. PlatForum was everything I needed to fine tune my personal brand, find my voice, understand my data and to navigate an industry I knew almost nothing about with dignity and confidence. Now as I move forward into working with brands and turning my passion into a sustainable side hustle, I’m using strategies I learned at PlatForum on a daily basis. Not only was the day fun and insightful, but Daniel, Sara, Ashley and Carolyn could not have been more approachable and relaxed in answering our questions and really taking the time to help. You can tell they care. They really take the time to review your content personally, and give you real-world tips that you can use in a general sense, but also tailored to your own project. It felt really one-on-one.
If you are looking to elevate your brand and take your business to the next level, PlatForum really does give you all the tools you need to reach your goals and slay your social media game. Get it.”
