Hiring Local For Your Small Business Social Media Management
As a small business owner, you likely understand the importance of social media and search engine visibility for connecting with customers and driving growth. While large social media agencies promise results, consider hiring a local individual instead:
1. Invest in Your Local Economy Choosing a local provider puts money back into your community and builds relationships. Just as you hope neighborhood residents will shop local, supporting local professionals creates goodwill. A large out-of-town agency may get the job done, but a local provider will be invested in your business’ and the community’s success.
2. Get a Customized Approach A local provider will take the time to understand your business, brand, and target audience. Large agencies rely on one-size-fits-all strategies, but a customized approach based on deep knowledge of your locale will likely be more effective. A local resident will understand what resonates in your area.
3. Enjoy Responsiveness and Flexibility Local providers are more responsive because they are solely focused on you and just a few other clients, not a large roster. They can pivot strategies faster to capitalize on trends and opportunities. They are also more flexible to attend local events and interact face-to-face.
4. Pay Less for Overhead Large agencies charge high fees to cover extensive overhead such as offices, numerous employees and executives, sales teams, etc. Local providers have very low overhead costs, allowing them to offer quality services at extremely competitive rates. Every dollar goes further.
