Q: Why do I need an online presence and have it a social media manager constantly updating statuses and posts?

A: Besides the obvious fact that we are in an Internet age, ย most Business and Marketing is done online, the next generation of customers spend the majority of their time online, The fact is it is just good Business to take advantage of every advertising and marketing opportunity to grow your brand.

Social Media really is and evolving even more so to be in future the main driving force of every Business, it far exceeds the revenue generation of television commercials in many countries now. A social media manager can help you squeeze the most productivity possible from the process.

Q: Why do I need a Business Page and How often should I be posting on Social Media and why is the content of the posts important?

A: A Business Page is different to a personal page as your business posts are kept separate to your personal posts, thus perspective clients do not have to sift through a lot of content to research your business.

One of the main reasons to have a social media presence and a social media manager is to not only reach new customers but to keep engaging them so as that your Business/Products are always in their minds, also people appreciate the effort and attention/appreciation this represents.

The content of posts must follow certain psychological guidelines or you risk losing the attention of the people reading/viewing the posts, as well there is a science to having your posts show up and be shared across various different Social Media platforms. People are more likely to take the time to share your content on other platforms if it looks concise, trendy, and witty as well as draws attention to the point you are trying to make/product you are trying to sell. a social media a manager constantly researches and perfects these aspects of their craft.

Q: Is an online Marketing campaign right for my business, and should it be Local, national or international?

A: At the risk of answering a question with a question scenario here, Is a sign out in front of your business or a phone number right for your business? A marketing campaign at some point or another for your business is essential to arriving at your goal of a successful business.

As to whether a business should target a particular market Area? It depends on the Industry/Product you are offering and if you can draw clients to your business location or ship it to them, in many cases a cases a multi-platform/area plan can be created and implemented, this, however, can take longer to implement and cost much more…. we generally suggest single target campaigns, local, national, international and when successful allow it to fund a NEW campaign. A social media manager also makes time to keep up to date with the constantly changing dynamics that make up this aspect of an online presence.

Q: Why should I consider a new business logo and or a business slogan or motto?

A: While your current logo, Slogan or business motto may have sentimental meaning, sentimentality doesn’t drive our bottom lines or brand growth. In some cases, a fresh new approach may be warranted.

Q: Surely I can manage this myself along with my business or simply have someone in house learn to do it?

A: Another question with a question answer scenario ๐Ÿ˜‰ Do you remember how much work it was to Set up your business and how many late nights you had?

Starting off a business page and online presence is no different, for example I spend myself up to sixteen hours a day for about seven days on my clients project, granted this is much more than the majority of my competition but, when they take our Full Package option and I have a design team and subcontractors to handle some aspects.

Once your page, presence and social media accounts are set up, you then have to learn how to run them effectively, track and monitor their progress ย and experiment with new processes and software to maximise efficiency, The software costs hundreds of dollars and new stuff you need to maintain your edge is always coming out, you need to have time to learn how to operate them and as is the reason our industry exists, this stuff was once done in-house but once it was discovered how much profit it could yield, it created a new Industry, It can be hard to get someone to settle for making $500 to $2500 per month once they discover they can make that per month per client and handle 4 to 10 clients per month ๐Ÿ˜‰

The another side of this is that once you have what you need in place? An employee will generally have to be given other tasks to do as the work in this field will not be as frequent or require as much attention. You really can’t replace the flexibility of a social media manager.

With us? Well, this is all we do and when we are not doing it? We are researching every aspect of it to Improve our Guerrilla Tactics in implementing it, besides this, we constantly experiment with our own accounts to see how well it works, you can see our New Brunswick Farmers Page to see how well our experiments work ย ๐Ÿ™‚

I work seven days a week three hundred and sixty-five days a year so you do Not have to ๐Ÿ™‚

I was asked, Why do you share techniques with the general public, Why do you give links to tools you use?
I am glad these questions were asked, the answers are simple really, HONOR or HONOUR depending where you live ๐Ÿ˜‰ you see being an activist for so many years before I came into this industry showed me something, some marketersย are SCUM, I have watched many systems corrupted and quality vendors put out of business simplyย by marketers more over companies that pay marketers to tell outright lies about their products/services (FYI if you are one of those companies please do not contact me ๐Ÿ™‚
I reserve my skills and dedication for honorable companies, that I can feel proud of my work, there are plenty of scummy marketers out there that are willing to sell their soul for a buck. I came from nothing and am comfortable with having that if that is the way it must be to maintain my honor ๐Ÿ˜› )
If however you are a company turning over a new leaf and can prove that fact, I am your man.
If your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) / Social media manager is good enough they can use white/gray hat (honest tactics ) to improve your web presence via black hat that can actually harm your website rankings on Google via reputation and penalisation by Google.
Why do I share SOME of my techniques? Well, thatโ€™s a pretty easy one too. I like to help people, in fact, I am passionate about it, in my home and personal life as in my business life, the difference being, I would give you the shirt off my back in my personal life but canโ€™t really do that in my business life or I would have no business ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚
I do not share all my tactics and besides my business is built around doing this work for people that do not have the time or will to do it.
It is a win-win and honorable businesses should help each other thrive ๐Ÿ™‚ I canโ€™t serve everyone not yet at least but๐Ÿ˜‰ I am confident enough in my abilities to know that I will always have clients, if someone wishes to use my services or not, I still want them to succeed.
I would also like to be a pillar of my industry and restore some honor to it when and where I can. Thus I will try to send them away with some value. I also vet every company I do business with as per their products/services admittingly there are some that I am forced to do business with as they are the only ones that provide the services/products my industry uses but I do not actively promote them and often will email them suggestions on how to improve their public image.
Why do I give links to or give reviews of products I use, when I know it may cost me, clients, /give my competition an edge? I generally tend to become an affiliate of those businesses I promote, so when you click those links I provide, I get a commission on your business/discounts I can pass along to my clients.
If I use a service that stands up to the claims it makes? that company has built something of value for my clients, myself more over my family as well as my industry, for me itโ€™s a matter of universal karma and just the right thing to do, to tell people about that service/product!
Again I am more than confident in my abilities, as for losing perspective clients, so be it, plenty of fish in the sea and at least I can go to bed at night knowing I helped someone, besides if ANYONE especially a business owner is willing to put in the up to 16 hours a day research that I do to constantly improve myself, chances are they are going to end up doing this job anyway, because, in order to keep up with me, they will have to sacrifice their business lol ๐Ÿ˜‰
