SOCIAL MEDIA & ONLINE MARKETING PROGRAM This program represents a strong focus on setting up an initial ‘Social Media Footprint’ for your business, with a focus on getting leads to follow your business and also to collect leads’ information for future email and mobile marketing. It is a basic plan for establishing your business in Facebook and Twitter, and coordinating activities in them to increase your business’ social authority, generate more leads, collect leads’ details.  The proposal covers many hours on our part to research, create, execute and coordinate these activities. However, the end result will be a basic, yet powerful marketing program that will generate significant interest and traffic.

“SOCIAL MEDIA FOOTPRINT” Package (Customised)

Step 1. Strategic Planning Before we start building your “Social Media Footprint” and online marketing program, we need to create an initial plan for: • The components—channels and tactics to use with and how they integrate with each other; • The content you will be able to provide to us (videos, articles, messages, offers, etc.); and • The order in which we will introduce each channel. It’s likely new opportunities will arise during the course of implementing and managing your program. It’s also likely that some tactics will prove more effective than others. In either case, we will modify the plan accordingly. Value: $330 inc GST 

Step 2.  Give-away Offer To Capture Leads

We will start with capturing names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of leads.  We will do this by using a customised tab on your Facebook Fan Page. An effective way to build leads with whom you can follow up by email or mobile text message is to offer something of value for free in exchange for their follow up contact information. This could be a PDF eBook that you could make available.  Another valuable gift would be to give them access to a couple of short instructional/informational videos.  These videos would be recorded, edited and rendered by us and would ideally be around 1 minute in length.
