Facebook and Instagram Training

for marketers and business owners who want to make social count.

1:1 consultancy (for when you need a helping hand).


1-hour troubleshooting session via Skype/Zoom - £149

Your opportunity to ask specific questions and get personalised answers.

These sessions work well if you have some experience of social media and/or you have a strategy, but you’ve come up against a problem that you need help to resolve.


2-hour strategy session via Skype/Zoom - £249

These calls are more in-depth. We’ll take a close look at your current approach and come up with a plan to help you get more out of your channel. You’ll walk away knowing what content to post and when, and you’ll also have a better idea of how to make the best use of your time. We’ll be able to cover one platform (or Facebook/Instagram Ads).

The Ads Nurture package via Skype/Zoom – £499

(A block of 3 hours support with Facebook and Instagram Ads)

Whether you’re looking for support to set up your first social advertising campaign, or you’re already running ads and not getting the results you want, this service is for you.

We’ll always start with a minimum 1-hour session. After that, you can choose to use the remaining 2 hours however you choose, in minimum blocks of 30 minutes.

Regardless of your experience or your query, I’ll make sure that you learn how to optimise and scale your ads for better results.

What can you expect?


Charlotte Evans

“One word – Amazing! In an hour, Laura looked at my social media and told me what I was doing right (and wrong!) She explained how my social media looked to others and gave me hints and tips. She’s a wealth of knowledge for a small business… especially for those of us who are a little technically inept!”


Charlotte Taylor

“I had a 2-hour consultation with Laura to look closely at how Facebook and Instagram can support my business. Laura clearly addressed all my queries, explaining things in simple terms and with great depth. I would definitely recommend Laura to others who, like me, have a ‘winging it’ approach to social media.”


Alison Pike

“I seemed to be spending so much time on social media and getting nowhere. After a 1:1 with Laura, I’ve now got a strategy. I know where to concentrate my efforts and how to save time. Laura knows so much, you really feel like you’re getting the inside track on the social media world. Now to put it all into action!”

When you’re tackling it alone, social media can feel overwhelming. Most freelancers, business owners, or side-hustlers struggle. They know how much social media matters and they’re excited about the potential, but they don’t know how to approach it.

When your marketing budget is non-existant, you’re relying on social media to help you find an audience for your products or services. But with so many channels, constant updates, confusing algorithms, and a whole lot more on your plate, it’s normal to feel lost. We all do when we’re starting out.

The only thing that’s separating you from the businesses getting results on social media is focus. They’ve taken the time to learn the ropes, put a plan in place, and implement it. They’ve also learnt how to analyse and refine so they can continue improving.

Come and spend a few hours with like-minded people, and find the space and guidance you need to finally start making an impact.

Andy Cleary

“I’ve just completed my fourth workshop with Laura and I have to say – each one was excellent. The content was up to date and very relevant, but the best thing is that Laura makes each course personal to the people attending. Each course is fantastic value for money and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs social media skills for their business.”


Sally Wright

“I attended an Instagram for Business Workshop and it was fab! We were treated to a wealth of tips, advice and support, relayed in a simple and easy to understand format. A full end-to-end strategy packaged up in 4 hours – time absolutely well spent. I’d been feeling pretty disconnected from my business and totally overwhelmed by social media before I attended. I came away feeling inspired and with a renewed fire in my belly!”


Janet Lambdon

“Laura has totally changed my outlook on how to go forward with social media. I’m looking forward to implementing all her techniques. Laura’s workshops are relaxed and informal but her teaching is first class – she manages to pack a lot in but you come away with all the knowledge you need and full of inspiration and enthusiasm to conquer your fears!”

Who will you be learning from?

Hi, I’m Laura Davis.

I’m a Facebook and Instagram Ads specialist who’s been working with social media since 2011.

Back then, I ran my own cake design business around being a mum. I fell in love with using social media for business and, in 2016, I swapped piping bags for hashtags and Virtually Savvy was born.

I know firsthand what it’s like to rely on social media for your business, and I’ve worked with a wide variety of businesses to develop strategies and advertising campaigns that put money in the bank.

I understand that not everyone has the budget to outsource their marketing, and so learning the skills to manage it in-house is essential.

No matter how big the business, I believe everyone deserves a fair chance at learning how to make social media work for them. And that’s why these training sessions exist.

I also co-founded The Hub and Toolkit for social media managers.

Need help to get your SMM business off the ground? We’ve got you covered.

The Social Media Managers’ Toolkit.

Everything you need to hit the ground running.

I teamed up with my friend and fellow social media specialist, Laura Moore, to create a kit full of resources and advice.

Laura and I trained together several years ago, and between us, we have almost 20 years of experience being self-employed.

We’re both big on community and we spend a lot of time hanging around on Instagram and in Facebook Groups supporting fellow social media managers.

When we spotted a need for straight-forward, practical business advice (all the essential stuff that social media training programmes don’t provide), we knew we had to step in.

This isn’t a replacement for social media training or certifications. It’s the practical help you need to translate your training into a job that pays the bills.

What’s included?


In-depth guides with tonnes of advice to help you grow your business

Advice on pricing and increasing your income

Onboarding forms, checklists, and questionnaires

Customisable templates for proposals, invoices, and reports

Workshop slides so you can host workshops and masterclasses

Facebook Ads module to help you sell your workshops

Expert advice on mindset and productivity

Guest expert advice on PR, finance, and websites

You’ve done the training and developed all the right skills. Now it’s time to get out there and turn this thing into a business.

Lucy Beaufrere, Social Media Manager

“This is a one-stop-shop for launching your social media business. It contains all the training, templates and helpful tips and videos you’ll need to get going with confidence. I graduated a year ago and have found the pack to be very valuable for my existing business.”


Ruth Charlton, Social Media Manager

“If you’re serious about growing your business you should invest in this toolkit. It answers all the questions you have when you first set up. It’s jam-packed with practical advice and templates that you can start using straight away. ”


Kirstin Chaplin, Social Media Manager

“This toolkit contains everything you need to get your business off the ground. It offers unparalleled value for money. I wish it had been available when I was starting out; it would have freed up so much time and allowed me to hit the ground running.”
