Friday Tip: Social Media

Tip: Take it slow.

It’s okay to start slow when venturing into the land of social media. Pick one site – Facebook is particularly easy – and create an account and profile. Then give yourself a few weeks to play around. You’ll figure out quickly if this site is the place for you.

$20,000

By having Kelly concentrate on our social media marketing, newsletters and press releases, we easily save 8-10 hours a week that a staff member would spend on them. Because of that, we can focus on sales, customer service and internal processes. We’re saving about $20,000 per year by working with Kelly, and highly recommend her to others.

Rewards

The rewards of setting my own schedule, working from home, taking interesting projects and learning a lot about my clients and their businesses far outweigh the downside of being a freelancer. These factors, too, were part of why I became one. And why I’ve never looked back.
