Caffeinated Marketing

Gettting through all the noise, one cup at a time

The JenHarris09 Update November 19, 2008

So, I went dormant there for a while.  Honestly, as soon as Matt Rissell said he wanted to hire me as the head of Social Media Sales and Marketing at TSheets…I took a big sigh of releif & watched a mini-marathon of Paris Hilton trying to find a new BFF on MTV.  Don’t remember a thing about it…just noise.

Here is one thing that I needed to get out there – I used SureveyMonkey to ask my friends & collegues some questions about how they would pay an independent social media consultant.  Here is some of the Q&A. 

SHOULD I CONSULT?

1. Have you considered integrating a Social Media/New Media/2.0 marketing plan into your existing marketing plan?
Yes:  73.9%
No:   26.1%

2. Would you rather hire someone…
Internally – full or part time: 30.4%
On a Consultative basis:  69.6%

3. Would you rather pay a consultant based on…
An hourly rate?: 57.1%
A paid up front block of time?: 42.9%

I also asked an open ended question of how much it was worth per hour & that was just all over the board from “show me the ROI first” (really? Let’s blog about that later) to $300 an hour (thanks mom). 🙂

My goal starting December 1, 2008 is to blog here three times a week and for TSheets twice a week…along with my other communications out there, I really think that we can show a consistant ROI for Social Media.
