You May Need Help. Get The Help You Need
What can a social media manager offer a growing business?
Time to do your business.
It takes a helping hand to guide you, walk you through the fear of the unknown, and get to the “business of social media.” A social media manager is a person who can collect and curate content to share with your community. They help you craft a plan and make it simple to do and then teach you and your staff how to do it. And that is where I fit in.
“I believe that Social Media can no longer be a separate part of the marketing plan, but is now the circulatory system of what makes a marketing plan work.”
How Does Social Media Training Work?
The first step is to determine your Social Media Footprint. This is a free service for anyone interested. I go into the internet and find you! See what your customers see. See if you are where they are! Then we talk. I cannot help you without knowing what you need, you specifically. Since many businesses already have social media accounts set up they may just want to learn how to use it to get qualified leads.
That is why I offer Monthly Training. Every week we learn something, implement, critique it, and then set the course for making it efficient. Paying a monthly fee for this training can be a game changer for most small businesses because you are getting specific help that will grow your business. These start at $397 per month with discounts for groups of 5 people or more.
In-house Training or group training is usually 4 hours or more. It is geared to a very specific topic like LinkedIn Strategies. These can be personalized to you and your team. I offer them in person and online with follow-up.
What is Consulting?
Consulting is done a project basis for one month or up to six months. Most businesses need help setting up the social media program and aligning it with their website and marketing plans. Some clients pay a monthly retainer to have me coordinate and critique the work that being done so that goals are being met. Most consulting packages start at $1800 one phone call with me can determine your need.
Don’t be afraid of Social Media.
As a Social Media Manager, I have worked with small and growing businesses that need to build their social media presence, by creating and managing Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Yelp, Trip Advisor, or Google+. And I cannot tell you how hard it is to convince small business owners that these are the new tools of marketing today. Like it or not, we have to go with the flow of how things are moving. Social Media is not going anywhere and if used correctly they should all lead back to you, your company and your website.
I got tired of working for large organizations that didn’t really care about the needs of small business so I went off on my own and started working with, and more importantly, teaching small business owners how to use today’s marketing to grow their business. And it’s not an easy task, especially when money is tight, and time is tighter, but it is what will make things grow….and by grow I mean MAKE YOU MONEY! So it is important, and I can show you what to do, why to do it, and how to train your own people (when you get people) to do it for you correctly.
As a Marketing Coordinator, I can create a successful strategic marketing plan that works within your budget and goals, frees up your important time to focus on the day-to-day of your business. Whatever your particular needs, I can execute it simply and cost-effectively to keep you in front of consumers.
It is all about Coordinating the Communications of your business: advertising, brochures, newsletters, social media, and websites. All of these marketing tools must be coordinated in a clear and simple manner in order for your efforts to become relevant in this fast moving social world. I can offer a successful and cost effective way to get this done.
