In case you missed the YehBaby Social Club Launch Event

Entrepreneurs, business owners and even a few celebrities attended the official launch of the YB Social Club launch event on Thursday, 21 February 2018. The launch, held at Kikka Boulevard in Paarl, included a talk on personal branding by TV Presenter and media personality Ivor Price, as well as a short description of what the Social Club is and why it is relevant in today’s online world.

“The YB Social Club is the result of months of behind the scenes work to build a bespoke platform to not only inspire and educate entrepreneurs, but to create a meaningful brand for networking opportunities,” says YehBaby owner and creative director Ronelle Louwrens.

Why the YB Social Club?

The YB Social Club is aimed at entrepreneurs, small businesses and personalities. In the current business landscape, getting online is more important than ever. If you aren’t discoverable online, you’re missing out on many business opportunities. People choose who to trust and do business with based on online research, checking out websites and social accounts.

Having a website is the most important part of ensuring your brand is visible and discoverable in an online market, but building a website can often break the bank. With the YB Social Club, you can build an online brochure for your business or your brand without the extra costs involved. For a small monthly fee, your business can have a beautiful, functional, on-brand website to direct your customers to.

The majority of South Africans are on Facebook, which is still the largest social media platform in South Africa, so Facebook is the first place any business or brand personality needs to be visible. Ensuring that your content is structured, consistent and on-brand is vital to your success. Our team of marketers, designers and social media experts create posts that ensure you stay consistent, so that you can focus on bringing your personality to your platforms.

With the YB Social Club, we want you to become the expert. That’s why we offer an up-skilling programme that allows you the opportunity to learn about marketing, branding and social media, so that you can become the specialist. Weekly mailers offer quick, efficient tips and tricks that you can implement immediately, while monthly articles give you the chance to dive deeper into the what, where, how and why of online. Not only that, but the YB Social Club will have regular workshops, talks and events, hosted by our experts or online influencers and marketers, that Social Club members will have access to for free.

The YB Social Club is a way for you get ready to be found online easily and inexpensively.

You can sign up to the YB Social Club here.

A quote taken from Micaela Valderama's blog, used in the workshop

“The Indian millennial audience definitely shares much of the international Generation Y mindset, although it is expressed in a culture that is much less influenced by American and Western popular culture than in South Africa. We were able to share some insights into the underlying mindset and some techniques to help content creators tap into this.”
