Have you decided that you need to begin, firmly establish, or update your online presence — but you feel stuck, wondering what platform to use, what networks to join? I’ll help you identify which content management software, social media venues, &/or content curation sites are not only of the most value to your brand & product identities, but best suited to your own assets.
Do you feel overwhelmed by technology? Does trying to understand SEO & PR, let alone implement best practices, leave you feeling frustrated? Does the learning curve threaten your ROI? Time is money, after all; so sweating it out alone can really cost you! Let me help you worry less about the latest plugins and gadgets and, instead, concentrate more on how to collect the data you need — and how to use the data you have.
Do so-called “simple” webpages & profiles intimidate you, forcing you to procrastinate? I’ll personally train you in how to set up those sites with one-on-one tutoring. Or, if you prefer, I can set them up for you.
Whether you could use some help getting started or staying motivated, whether you need someone to steer you in the right direction or just be a sounding board to help you sort out all the things you have read (or that are in your head!), I can help. Schedule a consultation appointment with me, and we can discuss in real-time — on the phone, via chat/instant messenger, or in email — your business needs.

The social media movement born of Alan Jones' sexist comments had huge early success, but its clicktivists' wings have since been clipped. It was around the year of my birth that Philip Morris began a campaign to seduce its female smokers. In an era largely untroubled by my pregnant mother's cigarettes, the Virginia Slims campaign was, in itself, unsurprising.
What was surprising was the company's use of a ''women's libber'' to promote its product. This was the first time feminism sold anything to anyone; apart from its core principles, I suppose. Since then, the idea of an emerging social freedom has been used many times to sell women face cream and alcohol. The ''you go girl'' message has been successfully co-opted to bring my gender high heels and financial services and small cars. Because you're worth it.
These days, women are still buying back their own dissent from advertisers. But things are different now. In an age of social networking, where so many of us feel we are in ''control'' of our media, the way to a lady's wallet is a more difficult business....

Will your slightly slower site be penalized by Google and other search engines when you clients are even looking for you?

According to findings of a new study by the Webby Awards, Social Media platforms really do allow people to influence the purchasing activities of their connections. The strategic question remains, however: who actually gets people to buy? Some social media experts say you must win the “influencers” to your cause and make them your advocates....
