My Values, Goals, and Mission
Whenever I go on vacation I visit the local businesses and strike up a conversation with the business owners. There’s no better way to understand the local culture than talking to the people that create the local economy.
That’s what your business does – creates the local economy. (That’s huge by the way.)
The very core of our local economies is local business.
As discussions with business owners took place in small towns, and big cities across the US, a common thread revealed itself – fear.
Fear of losing their business is eating way at the quality of life of small brick and mortar business owners in a way that should be alarming to everyone.
It’s alarming to me.
So much so, that I’m dedicated to empowering business owners with the understanding of how to use social media marketing to regain control over the destiny of their business, create stability, and shatter the cloud of fear.
I root for the underdog.
The only thing the underdog needs to successfully compete with the big guys is knowledge and strategy. It’s not magic, it really is that simple.
After taking the Locally Rocks Social Media 101 course, I understand the different kinds of social media, what they are used for and how they serve a business. I’m really thinking about my ideal client now, and how to reach them. It’s a fun course and has given me perspective in the area of marketing – something I desperately need.
I walked out of the strategy session with a clear plan for my next steps and goals. I highly recommend Carmen to any business owner who needs someone to meet them where they’re at in the process of learning how to run a business and/or sell online.
Yo! I’m Carmen, you’re friendly neighborhood social media strategist! Together, we’ll turn online marketing overwhelm into solid strategy.
I kept seeing this ad on Facebook – it’s like it was following me. Annoying – right? It was selling ultimate abundance if I would only click the button. I knew it was selling me on something that was “pie in the sky,” but I was bored, so I bit.
What the heck? I thought.
I was right. The information was a little too “woo-woo” for my taste, and there were going to be no measurable results from following their advice.
I wasn’t ready for a whole new world to open up before me.
Clicking that one ad catapulted me into the world of social media marketing. I went down the rabbit hole and have never come out! The power of it all was obvious from that first day.
Suddenly, I looked at Facebook, heck, the whole internet in a whole new light. It was as if someone pulled back the curtain and revealed what the internet is really all about – e-commerce.
It was beautiful! It’s even more beautiful now.
Once you understand the sheer power that we have at our fingertips every single day you’ll be awestruck.
We are very fortunate to live in such an amazing time in history. At no time before the mid-1990’s have people had the opportunity to broadcast information about their business to millions of people for free! It’s crazy cool!
My background is twenty-five years of content marketing for multi-million-dollar construction firms. Ensuring our content meets the specific needs of our clients is critical to winning contracts upwards of $100 Million Dollars – no joke.
Social media marketing is one step before content marketing - it's what brings leads to your business so they can consume your company's content. (Content is anything your company publishes; how-to manuals, checklist, educational information, company brochures, flyers, business cards, website content, etc.)
So, that annoying Facebook ad I kept seeing? Yeah, it led me to the content that company wanted me to consume. That’s the power of social media marketing.
My business is built on time-tested content marketing principles, with a layer of social media marketing strategy on top – it’s one powerful combination!
I’d love to help you understand how to use this power for your business.
