Duh of course it does! Social media takes a lot of work. I mean think about it for a second let’s take Facebook alone. You have your personal page, your business page, maybe a group that you manage not to mention the groups you belong to. You need to stay engaged, on top of trends, and posting regular content people actually interact with just to stand a chance of winning the FB algorithm game. When you add on top of this organic interaction the inevitable paid advertising things can get complicated quickly. And these are just tasks you have to do on Facebook, not to mention the time spent planning posts, writing posts, finding pictures, finding content, replying to comments, answering questions, liking other posts. Now you start multiplying that across Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and any blogs that you have for your business and if you are like me you will wind up with about an hour or two each week to actually run your business and track down leads! That is if you are lucky. I am lucky in that my business is in helping you run yours. No, I will not stand at the register or answer phones for you, sorry, that is why you got into
I am lucky in that my business is in helping you run yours. No, I will not stand at the register or answer phones for you, sorry, that is why you got into business. I help by managing your social media. ‘Yeah, all you do is post for people.’ Not true. Take a look at that first paragraph again. We do all of that for you for any platform you choose. We manage, we innovate, we design, we interact, we execute. You suddenly get a lot of time to actually run your business, to answer those phones, to work the register, to actually be there for your clients. What would you do with all the time you are struggling with social media right now? Would you take on new clients? Would you launch a new service or product? Would you finally finish your book? I know you have dreams for your business, I want to give you the time to make those dreams a reality.
‘Yeah well I can do it all myself.’ Of course, you can! I do not doubt that. In fact, I am pretty sure you are doing an ok job of it right now. But how much would your business grow if you took the 3, 5, 10 hours a week you are spending on social media and actually used that time to run your business? How much more could you earn? What is that time worth to you? If you are making $30-$50 an hour (some will say that is really low others really high – I can’t please you all) that is anywhere from $90 to $500 a week you are already “spending” on social media!
Social media takes work and it takes time. However, the rewards are amazing. Your customers feel like they can connect with you. Your business, oddly enough, feels approachable through the effective use of social media. Connected customers are loyal returning customers. I help you connect with the customers you have and the customers waiting for you to notice them. Social media takes work but it does not mean you have to do all of the work yourself.
