There’s a saying, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Education is key to so many aspects of our life. From the ability to decipher the written word to a direct correlation with poverty and crime rates, we, as a society need education. What’s wonderful is that everyone has the capacity to learn. We are born learning! Look at a baby and you can see it is looking around, listening, touching, tasting, smelling and yes, learning about the world around them. As we grow older, our education needs increase and teachers, coaches, and mentors begin to enter our lives. We look to family and friends for help with decisions of all shapes and sizes from what to make for dinner to should I quit my job? When we ask for advice or assistance, we’re really looking to others for perspective and guidance. Which is what education at its foundation is.
Education is a hand up rather than a hand out. It feeds you for a lifetime. In writing these blogs, it has been my goal that you have found a hand up, that you have learned something you can take with you. Through this, I have learned a great deal about you, the small business owner. I have learned about your dreams, your struggles, and your successes and am eternally grateful for the time we spend together from a single meeting to years of service. Symbiotic Marketing would not be where it is today with you.
In our three years, Symbiotic Marketing has grown and changed from a social media management company to a marketing and advertising agency and along the way added and expanded services to better meet the needs of the small business owner. We added photography services, website design and development, graphic design and more. But something was missing, a key component that Symbiotic Marketing was built on, education.
You see, the quote on the back of the brochures, is not by chance. I firmly believe that everyone is a genius because we all have the capacity to learn and grow. Which is why I am pleased to officially announce the first of what I intend to be a greater commitment to educating and empowering the small business owner in marketing and business growth, social media management coaching.
Social Media Management Coaching
Social Media Management Coaching will include a one-hour meeting via video chat or in person (depending on distance and availability) where we will review your social media insights together and formulate a plan for you to reach your target audience. You will also receive a written report of our discussion. As each individual and circumstance differs, we have added social media management coaching to our Basic Pre-Pay Plan so that you may choose how many meetings you need based on your comfort level. After each meeting, you will be asked if you would like to schedule a meeting for the following month. Our focus is on your specific needs, comfort level, and to give you a hand up. With this, if additional time is needed, the hourly rate would then apply. This enhancement to the Basic Plan begins Monday, January 13, 2020.
I am ridiculously excited for this announcement because it is the first of what I intend to be several expanding and enhancing of services for 2020, all focused on giving you, the small business owner and hand up when needed. I can’t wait to see what you can do.
