This is What You Really Need to Know.
The first thing I always get asked is "What are your rates?" To answer that first thing is not informative because 1) I don't yet know what specific services you need and 2) I don't yet know what you are providing. So let me tell you some better questions to start out with that will give you an idea of what I can do for you. After we meet for a free consultation and once I know your specific needs, I can write a proposal for the work you wish me to do, giving you options from which to choose.
"Can You Write a Custom Social Media Marketing Plan For Me?"
There is a saying: "Failure to plan is planning to fail." This definitely applies to social media marketing! Just like having a business plan, you need a custom social media marketing plan. They include strategies to build your audience, engage them, and get leads for potential clients. I have researched these strategies thoroughly. I have a lot of experience writing custom social media marketing plans and would be happy to write one for you!
"Can You Create a Social Media Account for me? On What Platforms?"
This will tell you if the social media marketing manager can create, from scratch, a social media account for you and if they can do so on the platform you wish, like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. This is a service I provide at Quality Web Techie.
"Can You Design Custom Graphics for Posting to Social Media? Can I See Some Examples of Your Work?"
This is an important skill for a social media marketing manager to have. It's good to see examples of their work and ask if they can do different designs that you may have in mind. No portfolio is going to have the full range of designs the social media manager is capable of. To see samples of my designs: About Page
"Can You Write the Posts For Me? What is Your Experience?"
Social media marketing managers must be able to write great copy in excellent English (or whatever language you need). It must be clear, concise and compelling. Ask for examples. Before I was a social media marketing manager, I was a Speech and Language Therapist, a career that relied on my impeccable English skills. I write copy for maximum client attraction and engagement. I would be happy to show you samples upon request.
"Can You Schedule My Posts For Me?"
Social media marketing managers should not only be capable of scheduling your posts for you but should be able to know ideal times and days based on research for each platform you choose. I have researched this thoroughly. Additionally, I can monitor your accounts to find out if those times and days are ideal for your audience.
"Can You Help Me With Managing Engagement On Social Media?"
Often a business owner does not have time to make sure every new follower is welcomed, that inactive accounts are unfollowed, that all comments are replied to, and more that needs to be done to build relationships with potential clients. I have the experience on how to best draw out engagement on your social media accounts.
"Can You Integrate Email Marketing with Social Media Marketing?"
Not all social media marketing managers do email marketing, but hopefully they can integrate the two marketing strategies. I can do email marketing for you, creating a newsletter or even a simple email and send it out to your list. I can also schedule posts for newsletter sign up in order to build your list.
"What's Our Next Step?"
Social media marketing managers should be willing to carefully listen to your needs and explain what services they offer to meet those needs.
