Let me handle the heavy lifting of marketing your brand and engaging with potential customers. Whether it's Twitter and Facebook, or Pinterest and LinkedIn, I will review your industry and competition to come with a social media package custom tailored for your brand.
For successful digital marketing, a combination of SEO, Social Media, PPC, and Analyics is required. Social media provides valuable data for your business, along with a medium for conversation. SEO and PPC allow you to reach your targeted audience in the search engines. Analytics tools enable you to spot trends, opportunities and glean insights. You then have ability to act on some of those insights by engaging socially the right way in order to: reinforce branding, increase your traffic, conversions, customer loyalty, and thereby, your ROI.
For local brick‐and‐mortar businesses, the most important development is Local Search Marketing. Here's how it works: I can create an optimization program that can leads to greater online visibility (local search listings), which are supported by positive reviews. More visible listings attract new (and more loyal) customers, who then refer others, which in turn lowers your customer acquisition costs, and increases your potential revenue. With enhanced visibility and strong reviews, even a microbusiness with no advertising budget can enjoy highly‐influential first‐page results on the major search engines and profit from a stream of ideal clients in its community.
Content is king on Google, the Twitterverse, Blogosphere, and the Interwebs. Content is what propels your keyword relevancy while forcing bots to review and re-rank your site with every update. Social engagement is what propels your Klout score, reinforces your brand, and helps you gain new customers create a loyal fan base. But you're busy, and have other inter-departmental something or others to focus on. Let my dedicated bloggers ghost write your blog posts and articles, ghost tweet on your Twitter account, ghost reply to Facebook chatter, or any other ghost [blank]ing that complies with the Geneva Conventions.
If you have in-house SEO or other marketing individuals and just need a strategic review, or maybe you know exactly what you need but have no one to outsource the work to, I'm here to help. I understand that not everyone has the budget for monthly marketing services, or even the need for a huge service package. Sometimes, you just need an expert for in-house training, phone or email support, blogging or copywriting, or maybe you just want 500 Twitter followers within 48 hours. Just let me know! I offer consulting at an hourly rate, and à la carte once-and-done services that you can purchase in bite sized chunks according to your specifications. Just ask for à la carte menu options for your specific needs or consulting and training options.
