Wealth of experience

Shaer has experienced a fast rise to finding her unique space in South African by emerging as one of the only social media publicists, with a focus on hashtag strategy and incorporating new media tweets & bloggers into the mix of traditional media.

Her online journey gained traction as blogger, with her personal Project Me story close embarking on 1000 posts and spanning a four-year story of living with courage, consciousness and a sense of humour.

As she made her way up the influencer ladder, she founded her #FollowSA Twitter community, focusing on creating connections online in order to bring about opportunity offline. With a keen focus on the power that fuels a well-strategised hashtag and through her connection of over 40 000 followers, she is sought after for social media publicity by brands, PR agencies and event organisers.

Fee is R150 per person booked and there is space for only 20 people - Click Here to Book.
