Social Media Coaching and Consulting

  • Are you struggling with getting started promoting your business using Social Media and don’t know where to start?
  • Are you working on a particular aspect of Social Media and just stuck with how to optimize it and make sure you are taking full advantage of the opportunity?  Or maybe you would like a review of what you are doing and make sure you are on the right track?
  • Are you tired of trying to figure out Social Media on your own and just want someone to sit down and explain it to you in plain English?
  • Do you want to finally find out how Social Media can make money for your business?
  • Or are you looking to get your Facebook Ad Campaign on the right track?

I can help you work through your issues and come up with a Social Media plan that will best fit your business. We start out with a questionnaire that helps me determine where you are currently with Social Media and where you want to go. I also get some background on your marketing message so we are consistently weaving that into what we do. Then we sit down and I walk you through what you need. We set up a strategy and system that will work for you in the future.

I will help you eliminate your frustrations and get back to your core business. Let’s face it, your business needs to be taking advantage of all that Social Media has to offer, but you don’t want it to be taking all your time and energy. Every business out there, local or web-based, is increasing their web footprint and you don’t want to be left behind.

One of the things that many people hire me to do is to help them kick off their Facebook Ad Campaigns or analyze their current campaigns.  I’ve trained hundreds of businesses on Facebook Ads and I run Facebook Ads for all different types of companies so I know what works and can help you maximize your Facebook Ads!

How does it work?

To schedule your session, first, purchase one of the sessions. Once I receive your payment, you will be able to see my open slots and pick one that fits your schedule. If you can’t find a good time, I can work with you to get a time that fits.

Then I get some background information from the Pre-coaching form below so that I can understand where you currently are at with your Social Media campaign and where you want to go. I will design a Social Media strategy that works for you and gets you to your target!

When we have our session, we will set up a remote conference via GotoMeeting so that you can see my screen and we can share control. That way you can show me what you need and I can help walk you through setups or show you different sites.  We can also record the session for your later viewing in case you want to review what we did.

“I can’t say enough great things about Andrea! Because I already do a good deal of social media for our business I was cautiously optimistic that Andrea would be able to share enough tips and tricks to wow me. But WOW, she did!! I came away from our phone consultation with so many great ideas and have been telling everyone I know about her since then. She really has her finger on the pulse of the social media industry and worked past the “Social Media 101″ right into LinkedIn, expanding Facebook and Twitter and some other web sites that I had never heard of. I would VERY highly recommend Andrea to anyone looking for a charming expert full of useful information. And, being a very small business, useful information is just what we needed. Andrea is also very well-spoken and I feel that she would be a truly fantastic speaker. Andrea is a pro through and through – a real gem.” ~ Laura DeVries, Cupcakes-a-Go-Go

“Winning a social media brainstorming session with Andrea Vahl (a.k.a. Grandma Mary) was a surprising and fabulous way to wrap up the year! We covered the realm of social media marketing and ventured right into business strategizing. She helped me unclog my brain and make some major decisions about incorporating my 30-year offline profession into my current online business. No easy task! Andrea is the perfect combination of warm and witty and she’s got absolute clarity and expertise in helping online marketers wow their target audience.” ~ Melanie Kissell, Founder of Solo Mompreneur

“i used to think getting a grip on the complexities of blogs and social media was a lot like avalanche training the more you learn the more you realize how much more you still have to learn however, sitting with andrea for a few hours with keyboard close by was hands on, informative, insightful, minimized my overwhelm and saved me loads of time thanks grandma mary!” –Gregg Bagni, coaching client

“The consulting sessions I had with Andrea Vahl were so helpful for me in beginning to build my online presence to promote my work as an author. She helped me with social media presence, my own website, search engine presence, plus many small details that came up when I was getting things going. She knows what she’s doing.” —Kathy Conde, Author

“Andrea gave me a great explantion of ways to use social networking to promote my business. She helped me get started and has provided valuable input to make Facebook, and Linked In work for me!” –Linda Boyd, coaching client

“Andrea is a true blessing to those of us navigating the social media waters. With a deep and intuitive understanding of both technology and people, she is someone I look to repeatedly to provide clear explanations and answers.

I’ve enjoyed the book she co-authored, “Facebook Marketing For Dummies,” her delightful and informative Grandma Mary videos, her breaking-news posts on Social Media Examiner’s blog, valuable Social Media Biz School classes, and the priceless info she shares on Facebook…all the while being “edutained” in the process.

Andrea gets a solid 2-thumbs up rating from me!” —Ann Shea, Marketing and Social Media Director
