When & why did you join Get Ahead
Hi there, my name is Sam Halbert and I am a social media expert looking to help people stand out using social media or paid advertisement. I joined Get Ahead in July 2022 and for me, it was a very easy decision to work with Get Ahead.
I already run a marketing agency based in Manchester but Get Ahead has given me the platform to help my services reach more people. With Get Ahead matching me with the perfect client every time, has given me the space to focus on what I really love doing… Helping your business grow! Both myself and Get Ahead have a shared goal, to grow your business using my expertise.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead
As I mentioned above, I run a marketing agency based in Manchester and that has been my life since January 2022.
Before running a business took over my working life, I have previously worked in sales, business development and marketing in various capacities.
My love of working in technology and social media stems from my previous role working for a Chinese tech-giant in their marketing and field sales departments. During this role I was accountable for growing sales using online platforms, combining my love of social media, sales and relationship building. Pretty integral parts to growing any business.
These years of experience gave me the inspiration to further my skills and start my own business with Get Ahead helping accelerate my journey.
Career highlight to date:
I am very lucky to be able to say that I’ve loved my career to date. I’ve had highlights across all the jobs I have worked in. From being the youngest manager in Phones4u (my first job) at 19 or getting the inspiration to start my own business, it’s been a bit of a highlight reel.
I am looking forward to making many more highlights in conjunction with Get Ahead.
Plans for the future
I very much feel like I am only at the start of my journey in this industry. Short term I am just looking to help as many businesses as possible achieve their business and marketing goals, that’s what I enjoy doing, so doing as much of that as possible would be perfect.
Longer term I want to grow my business and to employ others on a permanent and long-term basis. I love working towards a common goal in a team (part of the reason I joined Get Ahead), so that’s the long-term goal.
Personally, I have achieved what I set out to do, and that is to have more job control so that I can enjoy life as much as possible.
