In 2008, when my husband and I opened our ice cream store I used social media (Facebook, MySpace and Twitter) as the primary means of marketing our business, heck it was FREE and FUN, so why not?!
It wasn't long before I had other business owners visiting me asking me how we were getting so much free media coverage, statewide press and customers walking through the doors, especially as our local economy was turning sour. When I told them it was by using social media they started writing me checks to do their social media marketing for them! Some local businesses, that I didn't even know existed, were now paying clients, the variety of business types that I was working with even surprised me!
I soon found I had built up this business to the point I was turning clients away, all this while running our ice cream store. It was then that I started teaching other people how to create a business as a social media manager, thus being able to send my potential clients to those people, and over the years I have taught and mentored dozens of people into their own businesses.
I am truly passionate about helping people build a genuine business, as a social media manager, by teaching them the how to's of creating clients from within their local brick and mortar business community.
I look forward to teaching you too!
