Are you a startup or small business owner struggling to figure out social media? Are you trying to find the platform that will work best for your small business? Are you busy tweeting and posting but seeing no results?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then let me help you use social media to showcase your products and services. Your audience is on social media—you need to find out where and engage with them. But if you are on Facebook, and your customers are on Pinterest, they are not hearing you.

I love working with small business owners to find the best way to engage and nurture their customers. Words and teaching have always played major roles in my career. I use them to help you succeed.

Together we can create a strategy so you can find the right social channels for your business, the right way to get started and a reasonable and affordable plan for keeping it all going.
