What You Should Know About Outsourcing Social Media
If you are like most business owners, you're probably familiar with the idea of social media marketing. You may even have attended a class or downloaded an ebook and begun implementing some of the things you've learned. What you may not know, however, is that a poorly chosen strategy and/or improper implementation can not only cost you money but it can also do permanent damage to your reputation.
- How can I use social media to grow my business?
- How do Likes and Friends translate into more sales?
- How can I find the time to learn all this new information and still run my business?
- Can I afford to hire someone to help me?
- What should I look for in a social media virtual assistant?
- What’s safe to delegate?
- Can social media be delegated?
If you’ve ever found yourself considering any of these questions then you’re in the right place!
I’ve spent many years working with business owners who are looking to increase their income and cut their costs. Many turn to virtual assistants as the way to realize their professional goals and find themselves stunned to the point of inaction when left to sort through endless resumes and VA websites with no idea of how to choose the right outsourcing solution.
Many fear turning over such important work to someone who may not be qualified. Others have heard horror stories of virtual assistants who represented their clients badly, angered customers or disappeared completely with sensitive client information. The sad fact is that many of the clients we see have already tried at least one or two other virtual assistant services without success.
Fortunately, there is a way to get help implementing social media marketing without losing control of your brand.
Hiring a social media consulting service can be a good way to match your goals with a plan that gets measurable results. However, outsourcing the wrong things to the wrong people can cost your company big time!
In 2009 I created a report designed to help business owners who were considering outsourcing their social media efforts.
