Most people hate talking to strangers… they may be great inventors or amazing administrators but making contact with strangers is not their bag! But it is mine…
Do you require some representation? I’m helping a few organisations at the same time, enabling you to have a slice of my week for a very favourable fee!
I’m an ICE BREAKER, saying hello to strangers so you don’t have to. I am a great “stone turner” who is able to find and identify business opportunities and I work with partners who can add value to the overall offering.
Let’s talk about what you need and agree a process and fee that works for both of us. What starts as a short term contract may then progress into something more meaningful…
Working for you 24/7
The Internet is constantly on, working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Allowing people to visit your online social media profiles, blog or website, choosing when they engage with you… and there in lines part of the problem…
Ask yourself a reflective question… what percentage of the time do YOU visit a website or online profile and simply click onto the next thing? I’m assuming most of the time, say 99%… so why is it any different for other decision makers you’d like to talk to?
What I can do is speed up the business engagement process for you…
Of course you need a web presence because people are going to check you out before making contact, to get a better understanding of you & your organisation, depending on which they are interested in.
But how about you contact them first? Or better still, have someone else do it, someone like me 😉 If someone else says, “Hey, you should talk to Fred about that…” then the chances are you will talk to Fred. If someone says, “You should talk to me about that…” then you’ll think they are self serving and will probably not make contact!
Now I’ve spent many years engaging online, since 1999 I have been banging the online drum, so I have an expertise in this space understand how things work through practical trial and error… I’m not 3 days in after reading a book or two… this means I obviously place value on my service… I know all things to do with the web should be free but I’m sorry, I have bills to pay and a family with needs that require pounds, shillings and pence 😉
I can help you work out a logical programme of engagement that fits with your personality / brand values and ensure you make the best first impression… “Not like that, like that!”
For many the plethora of social channels that are available make them feel dizzy before they start, rather like a plate piled high with food, so they never do. I can help you work out which will be most productive for you and so get your social media party started.
I can knock on the door, say hello and find out who you should be engaging with in your market place and how they would prefer for you to engage…
I can help you create engaging content, topping and tailing your blogs or just writing the damn things for you, assuming you like my style… if not, we can find someone who reflects your style better than I…
I have lots of bloggers, designers, web developers, business consultants and a whole host of other talent in my network and we can approach them & see what they think about our ideas and find someone you can work with.
Financially I keep things simple, I change £247 for half a day of my time… I like the number because it represents the hours in a day, days in the week… the web being 24/7.
Obviously I will reduce for commitment from your side… happy to start by having a 10 minute chat over the phone and coming back with some ideas for free but then we need to get real, this is my talent which has a value. Initial payments are up front and we can move to monthly payment on 14 / 30 days as the relationships gets stronger.
Here is a video I shot recently about exhibitions and offering my services to man the stand… it gets some of my personality across and so will help you decide if you can work with me…
I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
