Why I train businesses how to use Social Media Marketing is because:

  • It take too much time and energy to learn by yourself. 
  • I like to help businesses achieve their goals.  
  • I enjoy their wonder and excitement as they learn how it all works. 

Why , How and What We Do

Just in case you are wondering... social networking is creating relationships one-on-one; just like your grandparents did with their butcher, grocer and mechanic.  Sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest , YouTube and Twitter once again allow you to create relationships with your customers so they can get to know, like, and trust you and your business.  

Social networking consists of blogs, posting on social networking sites, micro-blogs (twitter), social search, videos, mobile marketing, and bookmarking. and more - you do not need to do it all, but you need a professional presence.

Make no mistake, Social Networking is now an important aspect of marketing and active participation will augment and amplify your traditional marketing efforts.  

In Social Media and Social Networking most of the interesting stuff is hidden behind a login and a password. Marketing has quickly co-opted the social networks, yet many businesses still consider Twitter, Facebook, YouTube & LinkedIn to be a waste of time.    

Believe me the research says differently!

Social Media Marketing Relies on Trust 

 A strong aspect of the psychology of social networking is that you can make real connections online. Especially when you take time to join in a group discussion on LinkedIn or a add your two cents to a Facebook thread. There is an interesting phenomenon that takes place when you regularly ‘see’ someone, whether it is on TV, in magazines or on you favorite Social Networking site. You begin to feel as if you know them. This familiarity works in your favor to build a relationship and perhaps do business together.

“I have known Barbara almost ten years. She has a creative mind and is very gifted in communicating complex ideas. She has a remarkable understanding of social media marketing and how it can be used to grow  businesses on a very tight budget”
