Social Media Management Pricing Varies Widely
Social media management pricing varies widely. Some social media consultants charge by the hour, and some quote a flat fee for the monthly service.
Here’s an idea of what you can expect to pay if you hire a social media consultant:
Hourly rates: $45-$75 for an experienced social media consultant.
Monthly rates: Most social media consultants charge between $1,000 to $2,000 a month for managing a Facebook business page, and about $1,000 to $3,000 a month for writing or editing two blog posts a week to your blog. Here’s some more about pricing here.
Compared to this, our social media management pricing is a bargain.
What does a social media consultant do?
You’re probably reading this because you’re looking for places to learn about social media and how to integrate it into your marketing plan. Here’s a little bit about what we do.
Social Media Strategy Development- Develop a strategy for getting your message out with the greatest potential for social media engagement. We do this by looking at your existing marketing, branding and content goals and develop a plan that is a part of your overall marketing and communications strategy.
Community Outreach- Reach out to the Social media community to build awareness of your message through communities, bloggers and create relationships with the influencers in related social networks.
Content optimization – Optimize existing web-pages and content-including video, press releases, inter-actives and web content- to maximize re-distribution and discussion.
Campaign Management- Managing your on-line campaign from social media outreach to search engine optimization and marketing and AdWord campaigns.
Monitoring and Reporting- managing these campaigns takes diligent monitoring to maintain the quality of information and effectiveness of ad campaigns. We use state of the art monitoring systems to manage your campaign and “listen” to how the message is being received.
What are the advantages for you?
Increased Revenue- The more eyeballs that see your message and the more often they see it, the more opportunity there is for them to hear you and get engaged.
People are listening- Focused interest and increased user engagement returns in user loyalty and higher traffic as well as increased revenue.
Amp up the brand- With the cacophony of ads and media on-line, your message needs to be delivered clearly, in multiple venues and often to get your brand to stick in user’s heads. Entering into the conversation can help users develop a knowledge of you and your business that will get your brand heard.
Quality traffic- There are lots of ways to increase traffic, but what you need is quality traffic. If you sell buzz saws and you get a lot of traffic for people looking for Buzz Lightyear, what value is that? We drive traffic based on who you are.
Competitive data- Most likely you are not alone in your message. We can show you how you rate against your competition, and help you keep track of their social media presence too. Find out what they are talking about and market changes at the speed of the web.
Heard enough? Call us. We can build a strategy for how you want to engage-within your budget. Our social media management pricing works for any budget.
