SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT & STRATEGY FAQ
What does social media management entail?
Social media management includes (but isn't limited to) content strategy, written posts, branded graphics, photo curation, follower engagement, inbox management, influencer partnerships, ads, seasonal campaigns, product partnerships ... the list could go on endlessly. In short — it's a fusion of creativity, calculated strategy, analytics, and customer service. A fantastic social presence takes a healthy heaping of time and energy, which is why you should work with me instead of trying to do it all yourself. ;)
How does pricing work for social media management?
Pricing varies depending on 3 variables:
Can we work together on a one-time campaign?
Absolutely! I've had the pleasure of creating seasonal campaigns, event-based campaigns, and a handful of other one-time projects.
I'm not really sure what I need. Can we do a social media audit?
Yes. An audit is a great place to start if you're feeling unsure about what exactly your business needs. Audits entail the following:
What type of writing can you provide?
I won't lie; I'm a bit of a chameleon when it comes to my craft. While I'm open to any and all ideas, the following types of writing are my bread and butter (or pen and paper, if you will):
Where can I find your published works?
My bylines have appeared in Business Insider, Fodor's Travel, SUITCASE Magazine, and Seeker. Head over to my portfolio page to read the latest and greatest.
Can you edit existing documents and articles for me?
It is highly likely. Hit me up and we'll figure it out.
How much do you charge per word?
It depends on the type of writing — but I hover around $0.30 per word as a general rule of thumb.
WEBSITE DESIGN FAQ
I need a website but have 0 idea where to start. Can you help?
Of course — before I even jump into design concepts, we'll go over the basics such as domains, hosting, features, and more. All consultation is included in the overall package; I'll be with you every step of the way.
Who writes the content for the site?
Usually, site content (photos and copywriting) comes from the client — but I can certainly add that onto your package for an additional cost if need be.
Are you a developer? Can you code my website from scratch?
As much as I wish I was a wizard of code, I am not. I design websites on WiX and Squarespace. They're great platforms for solopreneurs and small businesses.
Will you maintain my site for me after building it?
I can do that! Site maintenance isn't included in the cost of build, but I am happy to provide ongoing support for an additional cost. We can discuss your needs for ongoing updates and come up with a method that works for us both.
How did you become a freelancer / digital nomad?
When I was in college, I had so many iterations of what I wanted my career to look like. It started with what everyone else was doing — I applied to various corporate internships, only to feel like a fish out of water during the interview process and end up getting rejected anyway. I shifted towards pursuing advertising agencies after that, but something still wasn't quite right. I wanted the freedom and flexibility to travel so badly; I couldn't fathom being stuck behind a desk with limited time off.
