High Cost of D.I.Y. Social Media

You’ve heard of the remarkable presence of social media sites and how businesses everywhere are flocking to them to market their message and attract new customers. You may even be considering handling it yourself in-house. “Think I’ll just get so-and-so to open up a Facebook account. We’ll check it every few days and use it as a vehicle to push our product line and services.”

The above business owner, sad to say, is headed for a blind-side impact on the great highway of disappointment.

Normally, a business owner would set up a structure incorporating two or three people possessing technical software knowledge, who are also literate with html and php scripting languages, to properly launch an in-house social media marketing campaign. His people then would have to be able to effectively write and develop the business’s campaign or message in a creative reader-friendly style, as well as know what to submit to the various social media sites. Additionally, his hand-picked employee team must possess the ability to report incoming statistical data, manage the results, and keep everything current.

Business Owner Expense

As a business owner, even if you were lucky enough to discover all these capabilities and skill sets in one person, the price point at which you could hire them would be, minimally, $4,000-5000 per month. A more realistic rate of $7,000-8,000 is actually closer to the monthly industry standard.

Fortunately, there is a solid alternative. Yes, you would be very lucky indeed to find one or more persons who would give you 30 to 40 hours weekly at $8 to $10 an hour to develop an impactful social media presence for your company. Instead of paying $4,000 to $8,000 per month for one person with the skills needed why not pay a lot less and get our whole team of experts working on the behalf of your business.
