I’m looking for a more personalised approach.
You need to understand social media from a professional (or personal) perspective. You would benefit most from having someone on call to answer immediate questions, research or offer an informed perspective on social media-related issues relevant to you when you need it.
- Available as a per hour service or on retainer.
- Available by phone, email or in person (London area).
- If I don’t know the answer or don’t have enough information at hand when you ask, I will kick my professional, postgraduate research skills into action and get back to you when I have what you need.
- An understanding of City time-critical, results-driven ethos in a friendly, efficient style.
I’m looking for something else
Give me a call on 07593 743929 and let’s work something out. We can do coffee and have a chat without any obligation.
I do think it helps to at least immerse yourself in social media for your own edification – it’s like someone in marketing saying they don’t watch TV; you can’t have great ideas or connect the dots for your brand if you yourself don’t even know what’s happening in a specific medium.
