If you understand the importance of social media, have an advertising budget and are ready to hire someone you can trust you’ve come to the right place. Whether you need basic management of your social media profiles or full marketing management for your company we are here for you. Gone are the days of newspaper ads and commercials. Who wants to read a newspaper when you can find out the latest news instantaneously online? Who wants to watch a commercial when you can DVR your favorite programs and skip right to the best parts? It’s all about the blogosphere. You want to get in front of your audience? Then you have to get active online. Start creating your ripple effect today. This doesn’t mean completely abandon all your other techniques it just means that you need to allocate some of your advertising budget for social media expenses and ads. Why does your company need to take social media seriously? Social media extends your reach, helps you engage with your customers and builds your community. Consistent activity even shows up in the search engines!
According to the Social Media Examiner 2013 Social Media Marketing Industry Report: The top two benefits of social media marketing are increasing exposure and increasing traffic. A significant 89% of all marketers indicated that their social media efforts have generated more exposure for their businesses. Increasing traffic was the second major benefit, with 75% reporting positive results.
Competition is stiff these days. If you want to stay “top of mind” you have to be very active and visible online. You can’t sway back and forth from being active to passive. If you are not in front of your target audience, your competition will be. The cool thing about social media is it’s an equal opportunity playground. No matter if you are a giant in the business or the little guy starting out. You have the ability to become front and center through creative thinking, time and continuous effort. It doesn’t usually happen over night. You have to be committed. If you are committed then I’m your gal. My team and I offer superb reliable honest service. You will not be disappointed!
While you nurture your business, We’ll nurture your online presence.

Looking for a Brand Ambassador? Do you have a brand new product you want to share with the world?
A brand ambassador walks and talks your product! They share it on their website and social sites helping you expand your brand. They share how great your product is by word-of-mouth. How would you like to see a nice write up about your product? See Tweets floating around Twitter? Your product showing up in the search engines due to exposure on Facebook? How about getting it noticed on the fast moving visually appealing platform called Pinterest? We can help you do this!
We love trying out new things and new products.The types of products we prefer to review:
- Outdoor products related to camping, fishing, hiking, gardening or sustainable living.
- Parenting products. Conscious parenting products may be shared on Carol’s other blog Intentional Conscious Parenting
- Pet products. We currently have two dogs and two cats and are proud grandparents of a sweet little puppy named Roland.
- Randy is open to reviewing items related to survival and the Zombie Apocalypse!
- Social media related products.
- Products that assist small business owners in growing their business.
- We are open to other ideas!

Honesty matters! If your product stinks we honestly can’t promote it and won’t write a review. We’d rather not say anything at all because we are not a fan of negativity, especially online. Negative feedback can hurt a companies reputation. We’d rather share with you how we think you can make it better.
We’ll provide honest feedback on what we love about your product and where the customer can go to purchase it.
The online world is congested. Everyone is online now. To bring your product front and center you need help getting the word out.
If your product is great we’ll shout it from the roof tops how awesome it is!!
If you would like Randy and I to review a product of yours and share our review with our entire audience through our blog, newsletter and all our social sites send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss collaboration!

“I just wanted to let you know that someone that you “touched” in the social space was a blogger who has a small audience. He mentioned my website, and 100 new people found me as a resource. Now, despite the small victory, I mention it to you for another reason. The previous person in charge of social, used some auto-twitter-follower-thing that resulted in 600 followers, and not one visitor. You, however, replied “congratulations” to some guy taking a college final (or whatever it was). You tried to make a new friend. And as I have just shown, one friend can become hundreds. So, thank you. well done.” ~ John Ross
Sign up for your preferred package now by emailing me for more information Carol@socialmediahelp4u.com Be sure to answer the 9 questions listed above so I know who you are, what your company is about and what kind of assistance you are in need of.
Please, please hire someone you trust. Whether it’s my company or another one make sure you hire someone with integrity. While I’ve never met anyone personally who would behave like this I have read the horror stories. Hiring a manager who indiscriminately tweets or shares racial or derogatory posts can ruin your reputation and set back your company branding. Take precautions and be proactive with your business presence.
