Social Media Marketing

I muddle my way through the web, research trends, read and comment on blogs, share information on twitter, Instagram, follow and pin on Pinterest and this my friends, I do for me to build my business.  So, this week, no one was more shocked than me to receive a call from a mentor in reference to my social media marketing.  "I want you to do for me, what you do for you."  "What do you charge for that?"

What do I charge?  Well, I researched costs and fees of social media marketing.  I couldn't believe it - $1,000-$20,000 per month depending on the number of social media outlets, number of posts, content -vs- photos, information -vs- inspiration and the list goes on.  Once I added all that up - "what I do for me" - I could never even begin to ask someone to pay for that and charge - "what I can do for you."  I can't even afford myself - lol.

I shared this story with a friend who said, "why not try to make some money at what you enjoy doing?"  So, I put on my thinking cap and came up with a pretty neat idea.  It will be something "I could do for others, like I do for me."  An affordable social media marketing option.  

First, I need to work out some of the details, but I think I came up with a new project for 2o17.

We own an antique store, and I can tell you advertising is very expensive...but we have to do it. We worked on a yearly budget and stick to it. Good luck with your plan. Janice
