Social media can be a daunting task that seems to never end. If you’re finding yourself getting swept up in the whirlwind, don’t stress. SMG can help you navigate the social media arena with one-to-one coaching, allowing you to take control of your social networking, and even take it to the next level. Coaching sessions are available in person (in the New York City, Dallas and Pittsburgh tri-state areas), over Skype and phone. Where do you start? The first step every small business owner and/or blogger needs to define is their branding and target audience. Coaching starts at $150/hour.
