Set up in 2017 by Becki Short, Netfriending aims to provide a slightly different type of Networking group for self employed people and small business owners.

Initially just a Facebook group, Netfriending grew quickly, with ad-hoc meet ups being arranged around the city of Portsmouth, on dates and times that suits the members who would like to attend.

Netfriending is still growing, and we’d love to welcome you in to it! We aim to have two meet ups a month – one in person at an independently run venue, and the other as an online video on the Facebook group.

Netfriending Meet Up 10

Members are encouraged to post questions, ask for advice and start conversations about anything business related that they feel relevant on the group. Becki regularly posts helpful hints and tips on social media marketing and SEO on the group, as she has a background in these subjects. Each week we have two regular posts on the Facebook group – “The Outside Eye” and “Facebook Netfriending Pod”.

The Outside Eye is a chance to ask for advice and opinions on anything you might need help with – from proof reading an email, to helping choose new products, and more.

The Facebook Netfriending Pod is a chance to help you grow your interactions on your Facebook page. This is not a like for like scheme, more a way to help your posts reach a wider audience. To gain true value from it, we recommend you share one of your Facebook posts to it every week, and take some time to comment on others posts as well please! We also have an Instagram Pod which you are welcome to join.

Find our group on Facebook here, or if you’re not on Facebook, you don’t have to miss out on the fun! Our events will be posted on our event page, and you can email Becki to ask to be included in a mail out whenever new things are planned.
