As a small business owner, there are only so many hours in a day, only so many ‘hands on deck’, and only so many business and administrative tasks you truly enjoy doing. For many people, the thought of keeping up with the ever-changing digital marketing best practices of social media, writing blog posts, split testing Facebook ads, crafting email subject lines, and staying on top of the latest SEO tactics that keep Google happy, is more than they even want to think about let alone follow through on. That’s why we offer a “hands off” version of all of our digital marketing services.
That’s right – any marketing tasks you don’t want to learn how to do, don’t want to manage, or simply don’t have time to manage, we’re happy to handle on your behalf. We’ve been working with small businesses ever since starting our company in 2011, and understand the unique challenges small business owners face every day.
We also understand that you might want to keep some social media or online marketing tasks in-house, and that’s totally cool with us, too! We’re happy to be as hands on or hands off as needed. In fact, quite a few of our clients share marketing responsibilities with us. It’s never an ‘all or nothing’ scenario when you hire our team.
In case you are wondering how we can know about so many businesses and industries including yours, let me share a little bit with you about our process. We start off any type of project (social media management, Facebook ads, business blogging, SEO, etc.) with a detailed questionnaire. We want to hear from you about your business, what you sell, your ideal customers, the experience you want a client to have with your brand, who your competitors are, and such. We want to know social media profiles that you think totally rock, who you’d like us to avoid (if needed), any recurring events you participate in, and where you typically go to stay up-to-date on things happening in your industry.
Basically, we try to learn as much about you, your business, your customers, and what your business stands for before we ever hit ‘publish’ on our first post.
If a question pops up that we can’t answer, we want to know how to best contact you about it. If you prefer to respond to all private messages on your social media accounts, we’re happy to oblige. If you need to transmit photos, videos or other docs to us so we can stay current with what’s going on with your business, we’ll set up a Dropbox folder or Google Drive with you.
It’s important to us to make sure we do as great of a job as possible to represent you (even though we can’t ever be you), and are willing to do what it takes to make that work.
If this approach to working together sounds like a great fit for you, here are many of the ways we can help you:
- Social media management (where we act as you on your branded accounts)
- Facebook ads
- Business blogging
- SEO (search engine optimization)
- Email newsletters
- Website content writing (Need your About page rewritten? We can help!)
All of our services are offered a la carte, and the level of service provided can adjust up or down as needed. There are no contracts nor minimums nor required retainers involved with working with us, either.
