Nameshapers – Social media supporters

Nameshapers (social media supporters since 2010) supports companies, not for profits and individuals with bridging the gap between the offline and online. Bringing a background as trainers they give many interactive workshops and one-to-one coaching. For advice about social media strategy, sticky PR campaigns and building impact with events you can also pose your challenge.

At Nameshapers we believe in helping others in a sustainable way. Preferably we collaborate with clients to teach them how to get the maximum result out of using social media. Nameshapers supports exactly where it’s needed: from writing strategies and brainstorming about a creative content calendar up to answering tweets when the tide is high.

Strategy & consulting

We help you to tell your story online. An example of a consulting trajectory? After a first intake meeting we will provide an analysis, go into brainstorm mode and write a fitting strategy. You can act upon this straight away because we focus on practical plans.

What clients say

With over 10 years of experience, here are some of our clients’ testimonials.

“Nameshapers are able to enthusiate people to embrace new ways of communicating without any fears. With a personal approach in executing the workshop they boosted the Nederland Cares team’s self esteem to think outside existing patterns and welcome new possibilities. Bringing extensive knowledge gave the workshop an extra dimension and kickstarted the discussion about the usage of new media.”

“We invited Nameshapers to host a workshop during our most recent team event in Barcelona. The team thrives on virtual contact as we have no office and interact entirely via the web. The guys spent an entire afternoon with us and managed to keep everyone interested and going. We now use Twitter and Yammer much more efficiently. Even the most social media resistant have been seen posting the occasional tweet.”

“The guys from Nameshapers are fantastic young, intelligent and friendly ‘teachers’ who will take you on a practical journey into digital possibilities. If you want to know something about social media, don’t look any further. These guys rock.”

“Don’t run away from new friends and other ways to connect on the internet. Nameshapers will make you discover the world of social media in no time. Their courses are practical and informative at the same time.”

“Due to Oliver’s enthusiastic guidance and creating a LinkedIn account together, I am now fully convinced of the benefits using social media has. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“Oliver is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field, he has a great sense of what a customer needs and how to project those needs in the best possible way. Oliver’s innovative approach provides many advantages and his authentic personality makes him a great person to work with!”
