  • Timing: Typically one week, but may require longer in certain sectors



The best Social Media campaigns are generated from within and regular activity and content generation quickly becomes a natural part of a company’s wider communications. However, to kick start an effective Social Media strategy, I can provide initial set-up and short-term content management, followed by a transitional handover to you or one of your staff.

End result:

  • This gets your Social Media strategy underway without the cost of hiring an agency or a bespoke member of staff. It allows you some time to test drive ideas and the see the value of Social Media to your business, whilst training up a suitable employee who can carry on the good work.

Price and Timing:

  • Set-up (including Blog, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+): £2000 + VAT
  • Set-up plus content x 1 month: £3000 + VAT
  • Set-up plus content x 2 months: £4000 + VAT
  • Set-up plus content x 3 months*: £5000 + VAT

*3 months is the recommended maximum. By then a company really should have fully embraced this new approach to marketing and feel comfortable managing it and driving content themselves.
