If, as a business owner, you have embraced social media, and are happily posting away on Facebook and Tweeting to your heart’s content, I’m sure your business is benefiting from your passion in sharing what you love with the online community.

But what if you aren’t a lover of technology? What if you simply don’t have the time, or the skills to do this? Does this mean your business should not have a social media presence?  No, of course not, that’s just ludicrous; your customers are online so why shouldn’t you be?

Working closely with a social media manager can be a huge benefit to many sole traders and small businesses and often a shared management package can be highly successful, where the business owner posts as and when they are able, and the social media manager ensures the regularity of posts, searches for people and pages to connect with. We can help you grow your online presence and manage your online reputation.

As social media managers, we work closely with our clients, getting to know them and their business and by creating bespoke packages and marketing strategies for our clients we can help them achieve what they want from social media.

‘’Suzanne has been our social media manager for the last 18 months, helping us grow our brand online. She also recommended we become members of TheBestofBarrowandFurness as Suzanne and Helen work closely together promoting local businesses. Last month we quoted for £11,500.00 worth of business just from social media enquiries alone, and one of these people had had no interaction with our page he just said ‘My wife saw you on Facebook’ and we have since fitted his new boiler! Many thanks Helen and Suzanne.’’

The old saying ‘2 heads are better than 1’ is also another reason to consult a social media manager. Your business is your ‘baby’ and you look at it from a different angle to your potential customer. We attend our clients marketing meetings and become part of the team bringing new ideas and a different spin to existing marketing - and in the case of the one man bands we support, we ARE their marketing team!

For those businesses who require a complete management package, we are here to help, and for those businesses who want the know how to use social media to connect with their future customers, we offer training courses in our onsite training rooms.

It’s crazy to think that everybody can do everything; we all have our own talents.  You may have a great design idea for a business card or flyer but it doesn’t actually take shape until you hire the graphic designer!
