Many small business owners know that marketing on social media can boost profits, but they really don’t know how to do it.
You have a full time job and you’re making good money but you want more. You have so much to offer, so much more than making someone else profitable. You have a passion that you’d like to turn into your own profit. So you decide to start your own business #CONGRATS ! You start a business and you start making some coins #WINNING ! You know you need to reach more clients, you know that there are tons of people out there that need your services. Everything is on the internet, maybe you need to figure out how to market on the internet.
Someone tells you “You need to network more. Make a Facebook page. You’ll get tons of business from Facebook.” But you have a Facebook page right? Or is that a profile? You ask your kids, nieces, nephews, neighbors kids how in the world do you setup a Facebook page? You spend hours getting your business page setup. You invite all of your friends to “Like” the page so you can “network” right? And #BAM instant success right? You’ve increased your profit. Or no????
Someone else tells you “Create a website. You can do that for free. You’ll get tons of business from your website.” You setup a website using Wix or Weebly or one of the other FREE website tools you find. You once again reach out to family and friends to help you fumble through setting up your website. URLS, .COMS and Domains… OH MY!!! Days, weeks, months later, your page is created. And #BAM instant success right? You’ve increased your profit. Or no????
The thing that no one tells you is that there are tons of different ways to market to your tribe online. What’s your TRIBE? How do you find them?? How do THEY find YOU? You really want to succeed, but if you’re honest with yourself, you don’t know how any of this stuff online makes money or increases visibility!
You setup social media profiles and websites but you don’t know how to engage more clients online.
Let’s be honest: There are a LOT of social media networks on the web! The problem is, you’re not a geeky online “guru” who has the time (or desire) to figure out the ins and outs of social media marketing. If you’re anything like most budding entrepreneurs, you work 50+ hours a week for someone else, you have a family you love spending time with, a “side business” that’s taking up a ton of time and you’re tired of trying to figure out this social media stuff.

With over 15 years of experience in the IT field, I’ve become obsessed with social media and technology.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, Vimeo, Youtube, Yammer, …. I get that stuff. I talk that talk. I live in that virtual world.
As a technical trainer, I’ve taught people everything from how the buttons on their computer and mouse work to how to build a database and website from scratch. When I became a Business Analyst and Project Manager, I was exposed to the world of planning, risks, stakeholders, deliverables and marketing. I learned early on that if you don’t understand your audience, you cannot communicate with them. More importantly, I learned that not everyone gets excited when Facebook changes the algorithm for your newsfeed. (In fact most people hate it).
I find it rewarding to train people on something I love.
Being able to help someone utilize the power of technology became a passion project for me. I began using social media as my personal and professional capacity, working on marketing my brand and others. Creating logos, Facebook pages, launching small businesses, grand openings, creating flyers, business cards. I soon began receiving several referrals for business. Everything from coaching them through creating their vision to providing my services to help them reach their goal.
After years of helping others launch their passions, I decided to officially use my passion for teaching people how to market their skills online.
I setup a quick website and a few business profiles. I figured, I’ll take a few months to get everything setup and then start promoting. Let’s just put it out there for now to gain a following while you’re working on building your brand. But there was only one problem… a good problem…. I already had a brand. A brand people appreciated. My previous clients, friends and family saw my sites (power of the almighty internet) and started referring people. They referred people before I could get my big swanky email together to announce my new business. How dare they! Lol. I’m so appreciative of the relationships that I’ve built virtually and in person by offering my passion… my geekified marketing skills to people who truly needed help marketing their brand.
