About me

LiamHi there – my name’s Liam and I was the Communications and Media Manager at Flagship. With over 21,000 properties under management, Flagship is one of East Anglia’s largest housing associations. I launched its social media channels in the summer of 2010.

In that time I grew Flagship’s Facebook profile by over over 820 friends and over 610 followers on Twitter, making Flagship the UK’s leading housing association operating in the social media world.

I’m often asked how I managed to do it. What did I do to gain a loyal following, how did we manage it on a day-to-day basis and how exactly can you measure success? With that in mind I’ve set up this blog to share some hints and tips for other housing associations and local authorities wanting to get involved in social media.

I hope you find it useful, and please do get involved and leave a comment!

Thanks for stopping by…



One response to “About me

  1. Hello Liam,
    I am writing to you on behalf on one of my colleauges. Do you have any contact details which we could contact you on? An email address or telephone number (or both!) would be very useful.
    This is regarding PR Contacts which we could use to advertise with. Our company is Power Train and we are interested in looking into the housing associations sector.

    Thank you.
