Social Media Marketing (SMM)
Social media matters – it’s the new word-of-mouth. Your customers use it. Chances are your competitors do, too. Social media marketing provides unlimited press releases and lets you engage with customers. It also enables business networking and can boost your search engine rankings.
We’re a pretty social bunch in South Wales and the Southwest, too – visitors to the region often comment on how friendly we are. Social media marketing comes naturally to small businesses in Cardiff, Newport and Bristol.
Many SMEs are taking advantage of that – but why are others falling behind? Sometimes, that’s just down to a couple of common misconceptions.
Social media is still seen as a distraction from work, and as a marketing channel, it can feel a little unfocused at first. Most (80-90%) of the time is spent talking about interesting stuff other than your own business. Think of it like networking with clients or being chatty with a customer, though. It’s social media, not pushy advertising – it’s about raising awareness gradually and building trust. That pays dividends, because people buy from people they trust.
A more genuine concern for small businesses, is that social media marketing takes time. You need to build an audience by positioning yourself as a friendly, reliable and interesting brand to follow. How can you stay on top of your social channels without spending hours on them every day?
Let me help, that’s how.

Managed Social Media Marketing
The more you use social media, the better it works — but posting content several times a day takes dedication. Wouldn’t it be better to outsource the general article research and post scheduling needed to keep your feeds buzzing? Then you could devote more time to your work, posting your own news and engaging with customers. Naturally, you’ll want these posts to be written well, by a native English speaker who is familiar with your company, your business goals and social media marketing techniques. Seven days’ lead time to review the posts before life would help too, wouldn’t it? I can provide all of this through your Social Media Dashboard for these low monthly costs:
- £100 for one channel
- £180 for two channels
- £270 for three channels
Depending on which channels you choose, you get:
3–4 daily tweets
5 weekly image tweets
2 daily posts
5 weekly image posts
2 daily updates
5 weekly image posts
These fantastic managed-content services are provided 5 days a week, as that’s ideal for most business social media. If you need to post seven days a week, let me know – that can be arranged. These services also include the Pro Social Media Dashboard, so that you can preview all the content, review the results – and create and schedule your own viral image posts, too!
