What is a Social Clinic & what can we learn from them?

At Delivered Social, we love running our Social Clinics. In fact, we’ve become pretty well known for them in the local area and beyond. No one else offers what we do. But what exactly is a Social Clinic? And what can we learn from them? Our Head Honcho, Jonathan Bird, features in this helpful video to help you learn more about what we do! Or, read on to find out even more about our famous Social Clinics…

What are Social Clinics?

Social Clinics are a concept that is unique to us here at Delivered Social. We run, on average, around two per day with businesses of all sizes in many different industries! When a business comes in for a Social Clinic, they will sit down for a personal, one-on-one meeting with either our Head Honcho Jonathan or another member of the team. Most people come in to talk about their social media as the name suggests, but they’re essentially business consultations to help with any aspect of your business! We will review your social media and website, pointing out where you’re going wrong and how you can make the most of social media to really put your business out there! However, Social Clinics often end up as a planning session. We’re passionate about small businesses, so want to know where they want to go? What’s the vision behind the business? Why was it started in the first place?

What can we learn from Social Clinics?

Social Clinics are a really great way for business owners to get to know more about their business. Plus, we love to get to know each person who comes through our doors. We’ve run hundreds of Social Clinics, so it’s safe to say that we’ve learned a few things! So, we’ve put together a list of five of the things that we and our clients have learned from them.

Business is Personal

One of the biggest things we’ve learned from running our Social Clinics is that business is always personal. Nobody starts a business that they don’t care about. Everyone who’s come in for a clinic is clearly passionate about what they do. They believe in their business and want to be there. Just the fact that they’ve come in for a Social Clinic shows determination to improve and keep moving forward.  Running a business comes with some great highs, but also some stressful lows. We’ve found that many business owners stick with the lows for too long without getting help. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Reach out to your friends, family, or services like our Social Clinics- they’re all here to help you and your business grow.

Hire Experts

Everyone who comes in for a Social Clinic is great at what they do- that’s why they’re doing it! However, nobody is good at everything to do with running a business. We’ve learned the importance of hiring experts that can do the things you can’t help your business grow. You should definitely put effort into finding the right people to give you help and advice, but don’t struggle! We’ve seen first hand the effect our Social Clinics can have on a business. Make sure your online presence is as good as you are.

Isolation is a danger (but Social Clinics can help!)

It’s a sad truth that owning your own business can get a little bit lonely sometimes! Business owners often avoid others, just focussing on their business day in day out. It’s vital to talk to other business owners. Why not ask them how their business is going? What are their plans for it going forward? Maybe there is even something you can work on together, to benefit both of your businesses. This includes coming in for a Social Clinic- we’re more than happy to talk through all of this, and more, with you!

Pain Points

We know that everyone who comes in for a Social Clinic is passionate about their business. But, there’s always something they don’t like doing. Whether this is HR, digital, or social media, everyone has one of these ‘pain points’ in their business. Despite this, there’s always a solution! You’d be surprised about some of the solutions to your problems that are out there. Our Social Clinics exist to help you find solutions to your digital problems

Remember Why You Started

We often see people who are struggling with their businesses. But one of their main problems is usually that they have forgotten why they started in the first place. For example, Jonathan started Delivered Social as he wanted to create an agency that gives something meaningful to small businesses. And it’s come a long way. We now offer services to many businesses, in Guildford and beyond, as well as recently expanding to include Charity and Media departments. It’s so important to remember why you started and why you’re passionate about your business, and you can never go too far wrong!

So, now you know what a Social Clinic is, as well as just some of the things that can be learned from them! We’re passionate about delivering Social Clinics and want to make sure that everyone who books in gets the most out of them. If you want to book in for your own totally free Clinic, just click here.
