Blog Coaching

Are you struggling to create strong compelling content that moves potential clients to contact you for business? One of the best ways to build an audience is to blog informational articles that will be shared to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and also get you noticed by Google.

Blog coaching is an affordable solution for speakers and other thought leaders to get the juices flowing and put some strategy behind the process of content creation.

Social Media

Why do you need a social media strategy? For one thing, social media allows you to take advantage of the incredible power of viral marketing. Everyone knows about the big three social media services – LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. So having a presence on each of these platforms is the key to successfully marketing yourself online.

Of course if you don’t do it correctly social media will eat up your time and show you very little in the way of results.

We’ll connect your social media to your site and make sure that all your updates are automated.

Public Relations and News Releases

As an expert in your field – product or service – it’s important that you are known as a source of useful information.

We can help you develop news releases and public relations strategies that are effective and don’t come across as overly self promotional.

As a former writer/editor for newspapers and magazines, I’ve had hundreds of news releases come across my desk and dozens of marketing and public relations professionals pitching me stories. Using social media, we can amplify your public relations effectiveness and get your story out.

Consulting

If you already have a marketing team in place, and you would like to bring them up to speed on the latest social media and internet marketing trends then you should consider a one hour phone consultation.

This one hour internet marketing consult, begins with a full analysis of your current online marketing efforts and concludes with a detailed breakdown of recommendations you can implement in-house to increase your visibility on search engines, and get more of your web traffic into the sales funnel.
