The Christmas holiday is almost upon us! If you’re a business owner, you may be looking forward to closing up shop during the holiday in order to spend time with family and friends. I, personally, will be escaping up to the mountains of SoCal for some fresh air and quality time with family.
It happens to the best of us. Maybe it’s even happening to me right now! We want to keep our blog active, posting as much as possible to show our expertise in the industry. But sometimes…you just come up blank. Whether it’s lack of inspiration, writer’s block or your kid kept you up all night. Sometimes you need a little help.
Social Haven Marketing has been in business almost four and a half years now. As a boutique agency with team members across the country, we each have our own preferences when it comes to our work spaces. Personally, it’s been a journey figuring out what works best for me. The ideal workspace which allows for creativity, few distractions and face time with others. I’ve learned a lot over the years, and thought I would give an update on how I’ve been able to stay focused and grow a successful online marketing business, as a contractor.

As a social media management firm, each of our clients have a presence on several social media platforms. Each of these platforms have their own followers with their own voices. There is a lot of chatter going on each and every minute. It’s our job to monitor the chatter and engage. Our biggest challenge has been … how do we (most efficiently and affordably, as a small firm with limited resources) listen and engage with our clients’ fans
That is the question. With over 81% of small and medium-sized businesses now active on social media, the answer is most likely “to socialize.” Before you take the dive into the warm social media waters, there are certain questions you’ll want to ask yourself.
I was sitting at a café with a friend recently who has had her website up for 2 years…And hasn’t touched it. While having a website is great for an online presence, it’s not going to do much for generating income if people can’t find you or don’t know you exist.
When helping clients with their digital strategy, I go over this checklist and make sure the following is set-up to make sure their online presence is working at full capacity.
