    I am meeting with a professional digital marketing guy tomorrow. While I used be a good print media person, the new social media marketing has left me behind in the dust.

    Jay Goltz wrote in "133 lessons I learned the Hard Way" (I think that's the title) that he went through a number of marketing firms before finding one that clicked with his objectives.

    Has anyone used a "pro"? Any results you'd like to share? Any questions to be sure to ask??

    Yes, I know with a bunch of hours I can learn and admin, but width the 4th qtr looming -I need to get up to speed sooner - than later!

    (Oh, by the way... did I mention that after almost 8 yrs., I am leaving my sales rep position next week - and going to the dark side! I have purchase a shop and am setting it up as I type...opening soon!!!!! Yikes!!!!)

    Sue,

    you may want to look into SnapRetail as well. Can do your emails and social media posts, I have used them for a couple years and like them.

    My experience is that many "pro" digital marketing experts over promise and under deliver.

    I believe they are at $999 a year. Have templates for social media posts and emails that tie your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest Accounts.

    If you would like more info send me your email address in a Private Message and I will have my rep contact you.
    So everyone knows, if I give them a referral they do give me credit to my account so I would appreciate you going through me. I can answer any questions that you have though.

    I think the formula is simple:-
    -Google adwords. Highest bidder wins.
    -Email list.
    -Yelp (don't pay extra)
    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest -get young hip intern to help.

    For $999 They don't post the stuff for you but you can easily do the entire month's worth of social media and emails in 30-45 minutes. If you want to look at it let me know and I can get someone to give you a tour of the website over the phone with you at your computer.

    I've recently started a try with Yodle. The amount of time it takes to keep this going is impressively debilitating - ugh.
