The answer to the question I’m most asked is …..
The bad news: Great social media support is NOT for the faint of heart!
The good news: Once you get a high end system in place, you will see massive growth in your business.
I meet people at events all over the world, most of these events are geared to digital marketing. I get asked the same question over and over, no matter what the event.
“What tips can you provide me, I’m starting a social media support business?”
Without asking a single question, I answer “Double your prices”
And I get blank stares. WHAT???
Here’s what I know for sure. Almost every person who supports businesses with social media tries to cut corners. They accommodate requests like “I just want 3 Facebook posts per week.” NO ONE is going to have a successful digital marketing campaign with 3 Facebook posts per week! Maybe they want to pay you $50 for that. They’re throwing that $50 out the window. It’s a lose – lose situation.
NOW, imagine if you doubled your prices. You built in enough profit into your packages and services to offer RESULTS BASED MARKETING. How awesome would that feel, to both you and to your clients? One very simple way to do that is to build some PR strategies into your services. NO ONE is doing this. I want to change that.
Take a look at this infographic for a place to start. It’s chock full of the strategies Christina Daves and I use with our private clients.
