All I want for Christmas (in my chosen *crazy* profession of course) is a job. Maybe start out part-time, 2 or 3 days a week (M-W-F or T-Th is best for the twins, so that they can be enrolled at Challenger…you know, to start their brilliance) and do for a company “that social media thing”. Strategy, implementation and education is what I am good at and I know if I could just get my foot in the door, I can and will make a difference.
All My Love,
This wish got me thinking…why can’t I be the Santa that grants wishes? And here is where Jen’s New Marketing Plan could be filled with pixie dust or flat-out brilliance.
I am giving it away.
I have no desire at this point in my life to run my own business. I have no desire to stress over the tax man. I do have the desire to help others – so I am just going to do that & believe that Karma will take care of things. No need to buy the cow, the milk is now free.
Here is how it will work:
You need to know how this “social media stuff” works beyond how to get on FaceBook and Twitter. An actual social media strategy with goals & objectives that go beyond getting tons of people to be your friend – I can help you.
You want to start a blog (or have the capability to do so) but have writers block – I can help you.
You need to know WHY you should be creating content over buying ads & offering coupons (or why/how to integrate that into a…..STRATEGY!) – I can help you.
You need to know where all these customers are “at” and how to get them engaged with your company – I can help you.
You just need the basics of how to work the tools – I can help you.
How I get P-A-I-D
Buy me coffee, lunch for myself and the twins and possible admission to Rafiki. Another good location is The Merc at Hidden Springs. Since I am turning over my knowledge to you for caffeine and chicken nuggets, I am guessing an occasional interruption from a 3-year-old will be worth it. Let’s plan on 2-3 hours.
What’s in it for Jen?
Karma my friend. That and a good recommendation or two or three or ten. My goal is to get that job with-in a marketing department of a larger company that understands a social media marketing person is just as important as the media buyer.
I am enjoying being a mom-at-home with the kids, but I miss “it”- I miss being in the thick of things. If this Karma job doesn’t come around for a year, so be it…but if I can help people in the meantime (and get me some free coffee) I will be satisfied and I will quit having marketing dreams about your business.
Be my Santa…give me a call, leave a message here, send smoke signals…just get a hold of me – I can help you.
