    • Looking At The Big Picture!
    • The Five Strategies
      Get passionate about marketing
      Understand Your Audience
      Establish Credibility & Presence
      Measure Your Efforts – ROI & Goals
      Pace Yourself – Time Management
    • Finding Your Marketing Passion
      Do you love your job? Do your employees love their job? Do you provide a GREAT service? Do you naturally talk about your business at community functions?
      If YES – then you are well on your way to passionate marketing!
      If NO – you may want to think about the pros of the biz – it will be hard to make others believe your service is top notch if you don’t!
      Social Media takes dedication, passion, and personality. Find those on staff who are already on board with these qualities and delegate!
    • How To Understand Your Audience
      Do some research –
      what are your competitors doing?
      what are your customers needing?
      what questions is your staff answering?
      who buys your service/product?
      where are they spending their time online?
      where do you need to be to reach them?
      when is the best time to post/share/comment?
    • Credibility & Presence
      Provide relevant and informative information in a simple yet helpful way!
      Be Available – don’t start and never finish.
      Be Responsive – don’t ever let a comment go unnoticed – positive or negative!
      Stand Out – provide something no one else is providing or present in a way no one else is presenting the information.
      Content, Content, Content.
      Website, Social Platforms, Blog and Ads!
