Social media is playing a big part in the evolution of our consciousness. Both on a personal level and as a collective, it’s bringing us together on a global scale.
On the macro it is being used for the greater good, quickly spreading awareness of social causes and movements such as #metoo and #blacklivesmatter. On the micro level, it is a place of connection between friends, family, businesses and communities of all kind.
I’ve worked in social media for over a decade now, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with people who want to use it to build meaningful platforms to support and showcase their businesses, projects, missions and causes. This has given me a unique perspective and direct insight into how it works and how it can be used to create and serve your life, your business and your communities. I also have my own unique approach to social media, which I want to share with you. I wanted to create something reassuring and inspiring that will help more people traverse, dance and feel at ease with this ever-evolving multidimensional digitallandscape we now find ourselves immersed in.
As a digital, modern and global society we have gone past the point of no return when considering if we are able to, or want to, totally unplug from what is now our reality. Yes, we can learn how to manage our time online better, but social and digital media is impacting all areas of our lives now. It is a very recent development in our evolution and we are but teenagers of a digital revolution. As we mature, it is something we can and will have to become more conscious of; how we are being affected by it and how effectively we use it.
The digital world may technically be artificial,yet, we are the ones that have created it, we are the ones continuing to develop and code it, and we are the ones uploading to it and supplying it with information. It’s a symbiotic relationship, with social media in many ways being a total reflection of us.
Known to my clients as their Social Media Angel, I’ve been working in social media since the MySpace days. After winning a Gold Sony Radio Academy Award for the first ever “Best Internet Programme Award", I decided to set up my own social media agency Kdot in 2007; growing a London based team to help me with range of clients from popstars to publishers; at a time when social media was still in infancy.
An interest and need for de-stressing took on me retreat to Italy in 2011 with John Parkin, author of F**k It; The Ultimate Spiritual Way… This ultimately led me to Hay House UK, where they saw my talent for social media trends and ideas - recommending me to many of their Authors. Thanks to that I’ve worked with many bestsellers in the Mind Body Spirit world and Hay House family, helping with developmental strategies and management of their social media channels and marketing campaigns.
I moved away from agency life, going solo as a consultant in 2014, focussing on authors within the mind, body, spirit arena. And in 2018 I published my first book; a self pub hybrid deal with That Guys House as I wanted to get the book out quickly due to the fast paced nature of social media and a desire not to be edited or censored.
The book, Social Media For A New Age, went on to be shortlisted as a finalist in the UK’s Business Book Awards in Self Development, it also won a Janey Loves Platinum Award and made the finals in the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards and it has received lots of lovely 5* reviews on Amazon.
My voice is starting to get noticed by the media, I have recently been featured in a number of different publications from Huffington’s Thrive Global to Om Times, Health and Fitness and Kindred Spirit Magazine.
And my work is evolving... Looking at how we can navigate the digital landscape effectively without reaching burnout. Supporting people with their digital self care - not just within their businesses but in all the different ways we use social media and our digital devices.
This is a great place to add a tagline.
“If you’re a conscious human who uses social media in any way, you NEED Kdot.”— Lisa Lister, author of Witch
“It is so important that within the noise of social media, we have the authentic voice of Katie Brockhurst to guide and advise us.” — Lynne Franks OBE
“Prepare for success as Katie my Social Media Angel shares her wisdom.”— Diana Cooper, author of Archangel Guide to Ascension
“A practical and soulful guide to finding real connection online.” — Mel Wells, author of The Goddess Revolution
We say we want to be the change we want to see in the world, and I believe that each of us has the capacity to effect positive change for ourselves, for each other and for the planet by using social media in a more conscious and effective way.
I will be sharing with you some of what I have seen, learnt, experienced and developed during my 10+ years of being online professionally, creating digital media for both myself and clients and through supporting many different authors, teachers and practitioners in the spiritual and wellness sphere to create online platforms.
One of my clients and Instagram family @lucyannechard, shared on Instagram recently:
“For soul-led, heart-centred guidance on anything social media related follow @katiekdot_ socialmediaangel. This fabulous woman helped me totally rebuild my relationship with social media and trust my inner wisdom when it comes to sharing my voice online”.
Social Media for a New Age labels success as creating a platform you enjoy, a community that you cultivate and interact with lovingly, having a creative outlet, a practice that supports you in many different ways... It really is THE place right now to connect you, your business and your mission with others globally, at the tap of a button.
What I share with you is to help you remain true to yourself and to your dreams, to enjoy using social media as a tool and creative practice that supports you in making those dreams happen and/or come into fruition.
Simple strategies that are authentic and true, Passionate, real, in alignment with YOU.
Tune into yourself to remember...
We can use social media to ignite our dreamson many different levels.
By sharing our gifts and inspiring others.
By serving and supporting each other, ourselves and the planet.
In co-creating new paradigms. In bridging dimensions.
When we show up from that place... Magic happens.
We are using it for our businesses, our social lives and pretty much everything in-between. So, in order to help us use social media more effectively as we transition into a new age, I’ll be talking about how to get out of the social media vortex of doom, whilst sharing what I know about algorithms. I’ll invite you to explore your social media ego and your social media soul, giving you simple strategies I use with my 1-2-1 clients on how to tap into your creativity and create consistency with aframework to flow within. We’ll discuss what it means to be authentic and vulnerable online, different marketing techniques and the power of community for the new paradigm.
