    Great for Small Business owners. Done in person or via remote tools (Skype, Google Hangout, etc.). I review your existing Social Media presence, make recommendations on immediate changes or edits and then I sit down and coach you, one on one, for an hour a month, to teach you how to use your Social Media platforms more efficiently and effectively. After that, I observe your progress for a month, helping promote your efforts through my channels and making suggestions as you go. After a month, we sit down, again, and review the previous months work and then discuss the coming months promotions, conversations and targets campaigns. After a few months, my clients tend to rock their Social Media Channels!
